Dennis O’Donnell of CBS 5 went on the air last night saying a source says the San Francisco Giants have acquired outfielder Hunter Pence.
The team has not confirmed this deal at this time. Which means the Giants could be close to landing Pence, or it could be some bad information passed by the source.
Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com says the Giants have been tied to Pence, Aramis Ramirez, Justin Morneau and Shane Victorino. Heyman also points out that Giants club officials say no deal is in place for Pence.
In another article, Heyman says CBSSports.com has confirmed that the Giants are trying to swing for Pence. The Giants weren’t believed to have much money to spend, but it appears they are considering spending some here.
We recently heard that Nate Schierholtz had requested a trade. A close source tells SF Giants Rumors that Schierholtz did not request a trade.
“He’s happy to be on a team with his best friends. His dream as a kid was to be a Giant and still is.”
