There has been a lot of chatter recently over the San Francisco Giants trying to acquire another outfielder after their bid for Bryce Harper came up short. Farhan Zaidi has laid out his “Plan B” after the Harper saga, which prefers trades over free agents and ideally a right-handed hitting outfielder.
This brings a fairly obvious question to mind: who are some of the best trade candidates that the San Francisco Giants could deal in order to land the right-handed bat that they covet? There are numerous opinions out there as to what outfielders the Giants should trade for.
However, this article is dedicated to the five players on the Giants with the most value that would bring back the most in return for their services.
The Giants have a plethora of bullpen arms that many teams would find appetizing, as well as some younger pitchers that I think they’d be reluctant to give up but still have plenty of value.
With a current outfield that has players such as Gerardo Parra projected to start, it is more than understandable why the Giants are considering all of their options. Not to mention young players like Steven Duggar who we hope will become the center fielder of the future but may have a disappointing sophomore season.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at the top four candidates for players the Giants could trade in exchange for an outfielder.
