MLB Rumors: Giants not interested in signing another starting pitcher

The San Francisco Giants have two World Series rings in the past four years thanks to their elite pitching.

They’re banking that their current rotation will get them a third as they’re no longer interested in adding an additional starting pitcher – even if the price drops in the market.

Currently set with a rotation that features Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong and Tim Hudson, general manager Brian Sabean says the Giants simply don’t have room for another arm.

Brian Sabean say #sfgiants are not shopping for any more pitching, even if prices fall on Arroyo etc.

The Giants (along with division rival, the Los Angeles Dodgers) had shown interest in Bronson Arroyo when free agency began, but his age and contractual demands pushed them other ways which included the Giants signing the aforementioned Hudson.

Certainly the Giants will at some point need some assistance in the rotation due to injury, but they don’t feel a pressing need to add insurance right now as they’re reportedly comfortable with their long relief/AAA-starting pitching talent.
