One name that reportedly has caught the eye of Kapler is Cleveland Indians defensive coordinator Kainoa Correa.
A little news: Giants manager Gabe Kapler is a huge fan of Indians infield coach/defensive coordinator Kai Correa and is in negotiations to bring him to the Giants organization.

Correa, a native Hawaiian who played four years of college baseball at Division III Puget Sound, has been with the Indians organization for the past three seasons, getting his start as a minor-league infield coach.
Prior to his time in Cleveland, Correa was a collegiate assistant both at his alma mater and Northern Colorado at the Division I level. Both programs set fielding percentage records during his time on the staff.
The Giants were just above the league average in fielding percentage a year ago (.985), but it appears Kapler wants that number to rise as he tries to bring the Giants back into title contention in 2020.
