Even though they acquired outfielder Marlon Byrd on Thursday, the San Francisco Giants may not be done in the trade market. According to Jerry Crasnick of ESPN, San Francisco is still looking to add some power and depth to their roster.
In just 114 appearances, Stubbs has slashed just .216/.286/.431 and hit five home runs to go along with his 10 RBIs. The 30-year old Stubbs had his most productive year with the Cincinnati Reds in 2010 when he bashed 22 home runs and collected 77 RBIs.
The Giants have also been interested in acquiring some bullpen help throughout the trade deadline and waiver period, as names such as Aroldis Chapman and Craig Kimbrel have been discussed. As for the infielders, Joe Panik is still on the DL and cannot afford to rush his return because it could have an effect on his long expected career. Kelby Tomlinson has performed above expectations in place of Panik, but with just 38 games remaining and the first place Los Angeles Dodgers playing some of their worst baseball of the season, the time is now.
San Francisco may no longer be in need of outfielders, bullpen arms, or infielders, but the front-office is indeed keeping an eye open for waiver trade targets.
Who could some of these targets be?
Take a look.
