The San Francisco Giants are red hot right now, and could probably cement themselves in the “buyer” status. Here are five areas where they should look to improve at the trade deadline.

The San Francisco Giants have plenty of solid pieces in their lineup right now. They don’t have too many serious holes. They’re red hot as of late, and have firmly cemented themselves into contention halfway through the season. They’re currently sitting five games over .500, just 2.5 out of the NL West lead, and tied for second in the division with the Dodgers.

An 8-2 record over their last ten games which included games against NL West opponents, has helped them separate themselves from those who are dwindling. A series win early this week against Colorado will help separate them even more, and can put them right at the top of the division if results fall their way.

With it being two days into the month of July, the Giants now have 29 days to make some moves that can help improve their ball club. As we mentioned before, at the moment, there are no real holes for the Giants, outside of maybe left field. But that doesn’t mean they can’t try to improve the roster. If they chose to stand pat, they could find themselves caught in the dust behind the Dodgers. So what areas should the Giants target?

We’ll lay out five areas of need the Giants need to fill. Some of them can be done internally, and some will have to come from outside the organization. Time to take a look at where the Giants could improve!
