The chances of the San Francisco Giants re-signing free
agent infielder Ryan Theriot are “very slim,” according to Henry Schulman of
The San Francisco Chronicle.
Chances of #sfgiants reunion with Theriot are very slim. He doesn't just want more playing time. He's hoping for a starting gig....

Schulman notes that the reason a reunion is unlikely is that
Theriot is hoping for a starting job or at least a significant amount of playing
time. If the Giants do not re-sign Theriot, manager Bruce Bochy said that top
three candidates to replace the veteran are Tony Abreu, Kensuke Tanake and
Theriot signed with the Giants last offseason and hit
.270/.316/.321 with 16 doubles over 384 plate appearances last season. The
33-year-old owns a career batting line of .281/.341/.350 over eight seasons at
the major league level.
Beyond the Giants, the Philadelphia Phillies, Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians have also been tied to Theriot this offseason.
