Yesterday afternoon Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com (via Twitter) said the San Francisco Giants are looking at Scott Hairston as a right-handed bat to platoon with Gregor Blanco in left field.
Chris Haft of MLB.com reports (via Twitter) that an agent told him San Francisco was “bending over backwards” to sign Angel Pagan and Marco Scutaro. Two hours after this agent told Haft, the news of Pagan’s signing broke.
John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter) was told that the Giants have spoken with the representatives for Japanese shortstop Hiroyuki Nakajima as a second base option in case they can’t bring Scutaro back.
Scutaro talks are ongoing with the Giants, and there’s still optimism they will be able to get a deal done. They haven’t ruled out a three-year deal, reports Baggarly.
Jon Paul Morosi of FoxSports.com says the Giants have checked in on right-hander Mark Lowe. Lowe is 29 years old and appeared in 88 games for the Rangers over the past two season, with a 3.63 ERA and 1.240 WHIP.
