Jon Paul Morosi of Fox Sports says the Mariners are willing to include cash in order to trade the under performing Chone Figgins. The Mariners are hoping that teams that need a leadoff hitter will engage them in trade talks. Seattle officials view the Reds, Tigers, and San Francisco Giants as possible fits for Figgins.I don’t believe the Giants will be in play for Figgins. He’s due to make $9 million next year and $8 million the year after. Figgins plays 2nd, 3rd and can play some outfield. He would be great in a super-utility role, but not at that price range. He hit .188 in 81 games last year for the Mariners. Let’s skip this Giants rumor, and move on to the next one.~King of Cali (Steven)———-——–—-——-——––———————-—————————————————-You can follow SF Giants Rumors Facebook page for more Giants updates!
