The agent for Brian Giles tells Dan Hayes of the North County Times that eight to ten teams have inquired on his client (Twitter link). Joe Bick, Giles' agent, expects the 39-year-old outfielder to agree to a deal by the end of the week.
Giles was limited to 61 games because of knee issues last year and he hit .191/.277/.271. To his credit, Giles had an .854 OPS as recently as 2008. Giles' last few UZR/150 totals suggest he's a below average defender.
Some of the outfielder's friends tell Hayes that Giles could retire if his knee doesn't feel better this spring.
