The Giants have been one of several teams in the running for Carlos Beltran. As the trade deadline approaches, one of these teams will get the slugger, while the others must figure out other ways to improve their lineup.
Yesterday David Lennon tweeted that there was “increasing chatter” Beltran may be headed to San Francisco. By no means is that indicative that a deal with the Giants is imminent, however. Peter Gammons also tweeted, saying the front runners also include the Phillies and Braves.
If San Francisco isn’t able to obtain Beltran, they have a few other possibilities. Their needs range from outfield to catcher to the middle infield. These are a list of options the Giants may have instead of Carlos Beltran.
