Giants Put Nate Schierholtz On Trade Block

By Bryan Rose

Per Jerry Crasnick:

"#sfgiants letting teams know OF Nate Schierholtz is available. He could be odd-man out when Andres Torres returns from Achilles injury."


I like Nate – and I fully understand his role and ceiling on this team. But he’s the wrong outfielder to move. Putting all of your faith in Andres Torres (as much as I love the guy and his feel good story) to return to form is slightly risky and keeping Aaron Rowand on the roster (despite his hot start which is quickly fading away) just seems overly questionable to me.

I can’t imagine the return on Nate being anything that valuable to the Giants – he is what he is, a solid backup OF with good defense – something the Giants clearly could use. Combine all of those factors – just not a big fan of a Schierholtz deal.
