Buster Olney of ESPN.com says (via Twitter) the San Francisco Giants did check in on the David Price sweepstakes, but they haven’t discussed any possible trade scenarios with the Tampa Bay Rays as of yet.

 
The Giants have checked in with the Chicago White Sox about outfielder Alejandro De Aza says John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter). De Aza could be moved since the White Sox acquired outfielder Adam Eaton.
 
In another Shea tweet, Shea said when the Giants called the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim about Mark Trumbo, the Angels wanted major league ready starting pitchers, and the Giants don’t have a surplus of starting arms.
 
Pictures on Instagram and Twitter keep surfacing of a thinner Pablo Sandoval. He’s been doing a lot of conditioning this offseason. Chris Haft of MLB.com reports (via Twitter) that GM Brian Sabean said he’d consider a springtime contract extension for Sandoval if he reports to spring training in shape.
 
Long man/spot starter Chad Gaudin isn’t likely to return to the Giants tweets John Shea.
 
Agent Scott Boras says Barry Zito wants to pitch in 2014, and he won’t look for a team till after January 1st. Boras also tells Shea that the Giants need a bat to keep up with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He suggested moving Brandon Belt to left field. Shea says that’s because Boras is selling Kendrys Morales as a possible first baseman (Twitter links).
