The San Francisco Giants have an anemic offense that needs improvement if they wish to repeat as World Series Champions, but they want to jolt their lineup without parting with their top prospects.

According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the Giants would rather acquire short-term hitting talent with their wallets, instead of mortgaging their future by trading away their good, upcoming farm players.

The Giants seem content with their world-class pitching staff, which leads the National League with a 3.06 ERA, but would probably more than welcome an opportunity to improve their offense. The Giants are 15th in the National League in runs scored and have just a .240 team batting average.

If the Giants want to repeat as champions, they probably will have to make a move as the trade deadline approaches. Here are five possible trades the Giants can make without depleting the system. 

 

Note: Some players listed have already been traded to the Giants, but their slides were written before the trades happened.
