It’s never too early to start looking ahead to what could be a busy trade deadline for the San Francisco Giants with a rundown of their top trade chips.
The San Francisco Giants do not look like contenders up to this point in the 2019 campaign. That can still change, of course, but if things stay the same then it is probable that the Giants will be sellers rather than buyers at the trade deadline.
If that is the case, who will the Giants try to shop? And more importantly for the future of the team, which of those trade chips is going to bring back the greatest return?
Ahead we’ll examine the most likely players to be dealt this summer, from Madison Bumgarner to Sam Dyson, and rank them from least appealing to most appealing as trade chips.
We’ll start with the fringe trade candidate and work our way up.
