5 potential trade partners for the SF Giants

2. The SF Giants could look to deal with the Miami Marlins

Although they aren't the best team in the majors, the Miami Marlins certainly have some talented names, and the Giants saw that first hand this past weekend as they split a series 2-2 down in Miami.

Their two top pitchers, Pablo Lopez and Sandy Alcantara are probably too rich for Farhan Zaidi, but Jesus Aguilar and Garrett Cooper are potential options to fill the hole that the Giants may have at first base if Brandon Belt can't stay healthy.

It's highly unlikely that the Giants target a big name like Juan Soto at the deadline (as there aren't many names like that out there this year), so cheap names like those above are ones that perfectly fit for Farhan Zaidi.

3. The SF Giants could look to deal with the Kansas City Royals

The Kansas City Royals have seemingly been in purgatory since the glory years of 2014-15 which saw them reach back-to-back World Series, winning in 2015, and the Giants could take advantage of that.

Sure, the outfield right now is solid, but if the Giants looked towards a name like Andrew Benintendi, or perhaps a veteran like Carlos Santana, then they may find themselves as a potential trade partner.

It may not be the most obvious team for the Giants to trade with, given that both those names might come at an expensive price, but Benintendi won a gold glove in 2021 and has potential as an offensive threat, making him a great Farhan project.
