Ian Kinsler's no-trade clause a hurdle for Tigers' deal-making?

Ian Kinsler's no-trade clause a hurdle for Tigers' deal-making?

According to the New York Post, the 10 teams on his no-trade list are the Angels, Dodgers, Mets, Yankees, Brewers, Athletics, Padres, Giants, Rays and Blue Jays. ORLANDO, Fla. -- Detroit Tigers second baseman Ian Kinsler's contract gives him the right to veto trades to 10 teams.  Not coincidentally, his list includes every team believed to be most interested in pursuing him, including the New York Mets, Los Angeles Angels and Milwaukee Brewers. It's unclear whether Kinsler's no-trade clause is a mere inconvenience or presents a real barrier to trading...

Giants add Beede, three others to 40-man roster; A’s DFA Brugman

A first-round pick, a pitcher acquired from the Mariners, a big left-handed relief prospect and a potent catching prospect are now on the Giants’ 40-man roster for the first time after a series of roster moves Monday required to protect them from next month’s Rule 5 draft. They are right-handers Tyler Beede, the Giants’ top pick in the 2014 draft, and Tyler Herb, whom the Giants acquired from Seattle this season as compensation for Chris Heston; left-hander D.J. Snelton, a 6-foot-7 lefty from the University of Minnesota who had a terrific season for Triple-A Sacramento;...

Giants fans mourn loss of a big, beloved cat named Skeeter

Skeeter was the First Cat of San Francisco baseball, an orange tabby belonging to former Giants third baseman Matt Duffy that grew to an astounding 27 pounds. It was love at first sight for Giants fans when Duffy posted a photo of the two together. On Saturday night, Duffy announced the sad news on Instagram that his family had to put Skeeter down. He was 15 and very sick. "It was a losing battle," Duffy said by phone Monday, not surprised in the least that a reporter would be calling about his cat. Duffy knew what Skeeter meant to Giants...

Giants discuss free-agent slugger J.D. Martinez

ORLANDO - Say this for the Giants. If a player with any degree of value is available, they’ll have interest. With an abundance of roster openings, they aren’t quick to rule anybody out. In other words, it’s not all about Giancarlo Stanton. It can be anyone from Eduardo Nuñez, who played in San Francisco before his July trade to Boston, to J.D. Martinez, who actually had a better home run ratio than Stanton. Two industry sources said the Giants have had discussions on Martinez, the most potent hitter on the free-agent market whose...

If Giants get Giancarlo Stanton, the preference is sooner rather than later

ORLANDO - Bobby Evans and Michael Hill strolled through the hotel lobby like two guys who wanted to pull off a Giancarlo Stanton trade. “We’re going to go shoot hoops,” Evans said. It was a joke. Evans never pulled on his high tops. There’s no play time at the general manager meetings, where Hill’s Marlins are talking about moving Stanton and Evans’ Giants are talking about acquiring him. It seems a perfect fit, one team desperate to shed the biggest contract in baseball history and the other desperate to add someone who knows...

Giants, A’s seeking outfielders at GM meetings; FYI, Giancarlo Stanton is a mighty fine defender

ORLANDO - As serious as the Giants say they are about upgrading their lineup, they need to be just as serious about upgrading their defense, particularly in the outfield. “The outfield is really the focal point,” general manager Bobby Evans said. “Our outfield defense really struggled this year. When you play in a big ballpark, if we don’t protect our pitching with better defense out there, we’re going to pay the price.” It’s the second day of the GM meetings in Orlando, and the Giants and A’s continue to lay the groundwork for improving their...
