3 SF Giants most likely to be traded before the trade deadline

3. Camilo Doval

Closer Camilo Doval has been pretty solid overall as a Giant. He has 82 saves in his career compared to 16 blown saves. He can certainly be streaky, but overall he has been a really solid closer for the team.

This year has been a bit more of a struggle for him as he has an ERA of 4.71. He has still converted 13/15 save opportunities this season which is very respectable, and he still features some of the most electric stuff in the game.

So why would the Giants trade him?

Perhaps they feel his struggles this season are indicative of a decline. Also, perhaps they feel they could get a decent haul for him from a contending team that is in desperate need of a proven closer.

Ryan Walker is an option as a closer if the Giants trade Doval. So is Taylor Rogers who has experience as a closer in his career. Tyler Rogers could be an option but he seems much better suited as a set-up man.

Trading Doval would be a risky move especially if the Giants are still within shouting distance of a playoff spot. But if they limp into the trade deadline then perhaps trading Doval would make a good deal of sense.

Those are 3 Giants players most likely to be traded this season. We shall have to wait and see if any of these trades comes true in the next month or so.
