Xavier Nady Close To Deal With Giants

7:48pm: The Giants are talking with Nady about a Triple-A deal, pending a physical, tweets Andrew Baggarly of CSNBayArea.com.  Nady is taking batting practice in Fresno tonight and is likely to be activated tomorrow, Baggarly adds (via Twitter).

7:39pm: Outfielder/first baseman Xavier Nady is close to agreeing to a minor league deal with the Giants, according to Andy Martino of the New York Daily News (via Twitter).  The Nationals designated Nady for assignment in late July before granting him his unconditional release on Sunday.

Nady, 33, has been out of action since mid-June due to a wrist injury.  Before that, Nady had a  .157/.211/.275 slash line with three homers in 109 plate appearances for Washington.  The veteran had interest from San Francisco over the winter but wound up inking a minor league deal with the Nats in March.
