The Giants are discouraged about their chances of adding a left fielder, Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports (on Twitter). The Giants have interest in adding a right-handed hitting outfielder by midnight tonight, the deadline for teams to acquire players eligible for postseason rosters.
It’s possible the Giants will complete a trade, but their current plan is to promote Xavier Nady when rosters expand, Rosenthal reports. Nady has posted a .270/.343/.528 batting line in 99 plate appearances since joining the Giants' Triple-A affiliate at the beginning of August. The 33-year-old has a career batting line of .284/.350/.440 against left-handed pitching at the MLB level.
