The Giants are leaning away from selling, but a visit from the Cubs could give them perspective

The Giants are leaning away from selling, but a visit from the Cubs could give them perspective

The MLB trade deadline is less than a week away and the San Francisco Giants appear to be leaning toward the buyers’ table despite their precarious place in the standings.

Following their seventh straight loss on Wednesday, the Giants made clear to teams calling about impending free agents and All-Stars Carlos Rodón and Joc Pederson that they would not be available in potential trades, according to ESPN.

The Giants are in striking distance of a postseason berth, but teams have every reason to stay on the line after the club’s worst stretch of the season. If the downward spiral continues in the days before the Aug. 2 trade deadline, San Francisco’s brass may believe the path to the postseason is too difficult and find more value in flipping veteran players for a haul of prospects.

The Giants have a handful of trade chips they can shop at the deadline, some more viable than others.
