How long will Sanchez be a Giant? (Photo by Scott Cunningham/Getty Images) According to FOX Sports’ Jon Paul Morosi (who cites “major-league sources”), the Giants are willing to trade left-hander Jonathan Sanchez. The move would presumably free up money so the team could focus on acquiring some help in the lineup. Morosi notes that “Sanchez, Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Ryan Vogelsong, Madison Bumgarner, and Barry Zito could combine to earn as much as $60 million in 2012 — roughly half of the team’s payroll” and opines that Sanchez is the most expendable, saying he is probably going to make about $6 million next season, his free agent year. Just who the Giants could get in return for Sanchez is anybody’s guess at this point. Sanchez, who turns 29 in a couple of weeks, followed up his superb 2010 season (in which he went 13-9 with a 3.07 ERA, 1.231 WHIP and 205 strikeouts) by falling flat on his face in 2011 (4-7, 4.26, 1.441 WHIP, 102 K, and two stints on the disabled list). I hope you enjoyed reading "Giants appear ready to trade Jonathan Sanchez." I'm interested in your opinion on this article. Why not leave a comment at 22gigantes.com?
