Currently sitting in the midst of a lost season, the Giants are likely realizing that it’s time to rebuild and primarily their minor league farm system.
Yesterday, the Giants made a trade with the Red Sox sending Eduardo Nunez to Boston in exchange for the Red Sox #18 prospect Shaun Anderson and another fellow pitching prospect. Following the win, a report was released that the Giants are going to listen to offers on pitchers Johnny Cueto and Jeff Samardzija. The Giants could be prepared to have their phones ringing off the hook as both pitchers could be big additions for team’s who need an extra piece to their rotation and especially if you are a team making a big playoff push in the remaining two months.
Both Cueto and Samardzija have been linked as pitchers of interest from others teams, especially Samardzija. Jeff Samardzija has been linked to the Houston Astros at one point but nothing ever came of the deal. The Astros could still have interest in him so look for Samardzija to possibly be moved faster than Cueto.
