SF Giants Rumors

Giants Scout Jose Guillen

By Bryan Rose

It’s been reported here on Frisco Fastball and on other media avenues that the Royals have had scouts at not only Giant games but down on the farm as well. Now reports are leaking that the Giants have been scouting Jose Guillen, per Buster Olney:

"Heard this: The Giants scout Jose Guillen on Thursday night."

Ironically enough, the Giant scouts were in attendance as the other potential Royals target, David DeJesus, went crashing into the outfield wall damaging his wrist. Best case scenario for DeJesus is a stint on the DL and a return shortly thereafter. Worst case, and it’s very much possible, is a surgery date with a recovery time of 6-8 weeks.

While Guillen might not be an ideal fit like DeJesus, considering the injury and price tag…Guillen just might be the more attractive Royal at the current time.
