Giants Interested In Hawpe

The Giants are exploring the possibility of acquiring Rockies outfielder Brad Hawpe, according to Mychael Urban of CSNBayArea.com.  Bobby Evans, the club's vice president of baseball operations, said the team is "open-minded" about Hawpe, who was designated for assignment last night.

However, Evans stressed that San Francisco may have trouble adding Hawpe to its roster.  At present, the Giants seem to be set at both first base and right field.  The 31-year-old is owed $2.2MM for the remainder of the season.  Hawpe has had a down year in 2010, hitting .255/.343/.432 with seven homers in 300 plate appearances.

Troy Renck of the Denver Post first reported the Giants' "potential interest" in the slugger last night.  A source told Renck that the Rangers, Rays, White Sox, and Red Sox are all possible suitors as well.
