SF Giants Rumors: Giants Made An Offer For Nolasco, Potential Giants On The Trade Block, Roster Update And International Signings
Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the San Francisco Giants did make an offer for Marlins right-hander Ricky Nolasco. Frisaro says the Giants offered two pitching prospects, but the Giants also wanted the Marlins to eat a chunk of what’s left on Nolasco’s contract. The Marlins decided to bite on the Dodgers offer, so now Giants fans can get ready to boo Nolasco in his Dodger blue.
Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle says (via Sulia) the Giants are making it easy for GM Brian Sabean. If the Giants can’t go .500 on this homestand, he should start taking calls on Hunter Pence, Javier Lopez and possibly Tim Lincecum. However, if the Giants win a couple of series, then Sabean could consider parting with prospects and making another run.
2013 International Signings
BaseballAmerica.com reports that the Giants have signed 16-year-old Dominican shortstop Kelvin Beltre for $650,000. Beltre shows right-handed bat speed and plays with a lot of energy. He likely will end up at another position, possibly third-base.
The Giants have also signed 16-year-old Venezuelan outfielder Mikey Edie. Edie stands out for his excellent speed and athleticism, although his bat and baseball instincts are still raw.
