The Giants also are in the market for pitching and they had a scout at Wrigley Field last week watching Tom Gorzelanny, who is very appealing to clubs because of his low salary and ability to start or relieve. chicagotribune.com.
Of course the Giants are interested in Gorzelanny – as would be most teams. He’s cheap, under control for a couple more years, can start or relieve, is a lefty, and is rockin’ it this year. Incidentally, those are all the same reasons the Cubs would have to receive quite a haul to trade him.
Speaking of the Giants, they had, at least at one time, an interest in second baseman Ryan Theriot, whom the Cubs are unlikely to tender a contract at the end of the year (though they might try to re-sign him after he’s non-tendered). We haven’t heard much on this front, however, in a couple weeks.
