The San Francisco Giants Rumors have finally come to fruition at the trade deadline. Eduardo Nunez is on the move, the first trade of the deadline for the Giants.

It’s not a fun scene when a player gets traded mid-game. That’s what those watching the San Francisco Giants game on TV got during the middle of the fifth inning in their game against the Pirates on Tuesday night.

The news of the move was obviously starting to circulate then, but Ken Rosenthal confirmed what many expected to come at some point soon, was that Eduardo Nunez was headed to the Boston Red Sox.

More from Around the Foghorn

In 125 appearances with the Giants, Nunez hit .293/.329/.413/.745, with 30 stolen bases. He was dealt to the Giants in the deadline(ish) trade last season with the Minnesota Twins, where they received Adalberto Mejia, one of the Giants better pitching prospects and a Baseball America Top 100 guy.

Nunez is due to be a free agent this season, and the Giants will certainly be in the running for his services again. But if a contender needs him, and is willing to give up something, then it’s a smart move for the Giants, especially when he’s expressed interest in coming back even if he’s traded.
