Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle spoke with San Francisco Giants GM Brian Sabean. Schulman asked Sabean if the Giants have enough to get the team to the playoffs and his views on the trade market for bats.
“I’m not sure we have enough,” Sabean said. “But having said that , I don’t know where there would be a significant upgrade. In a perfect world we’d like to have more power, and I don’t know if that exists.”
Sabean has spoken with 15 teams about 25 players, hitters and pitchers. However, the Giants are not in the market for a starting pitcher. They will look to upgrade their bullpen and bench.
“Anything we do has to be a significant upgrade and take us into the future,” Sabean said. Sabean is pretty much ruling out any rental players.
