After losing center fielder Angel Pagan for 10-12 weeks thanks to a hamstring injury, the San Francisco Giants are contemplating how to repair their outfield.
What type of move? While there has been no rumor linking the two teams as of right now, CBS’ Jon Heyman suggests the Giants may go after Chicago White Sox outfielder, Alex Rios.
Rios doesn’t have many years remaining on his deal – in fact – his deal, assuming the Giants were to buy him out in 2015 for $1 million dollars is only signed through next season at $12.5 million. Not exactly cheap, but, affordable for the Giants who have both the expensive contracts of Barry Zito and Tim Lincecum coming off the books.
With few options ready in the minor leagues, the Giants will most likely make a move at some point assuming they stay in contention – will it be Rios though? That remains to be seen.
