Giants Rumors: Burrell, Turnbow, Sanchez

9:22pm: Baggarly says Brian Sabean touched base with 25 teams today.  Baggarly does not buy recent rumors connecting the Giants to Cantu, Encarnacion, and Hank Blalock.

6:08pm: Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News provides the Giants rumors…

  • Pat Burrell would love to play for the Giants, but he’s far down on the team’s list due to defensive concerns.
  • The Giants offered Derrick Turnbow a non-guaranteed contract.  The Pirates are another team eyeing Turnbow.
  • Jonathan Sanchez is a popular name in trade talks.  Baggarly doesn’t foresee a Sanchez for Edwin Encarnacion or Jorge Cantu straight up type deal.
