Andrew Baggarly checks in with some new Giants information.
- He says the Giants are acting as if they’re planning on trading a pitcher, checking in with the agents for Carlos Silva and Hiroki Kuroda. Brian Sabean found the cost for Kuroda prohibitive, though. This activity is, of course, linked to the rumored Tim Lincecum trade.
- No truth to the rumors linking the Giants to Ben Broussard and Shawn Green.
- Teams have called about Noah Lowry, but the Giants have only gotten lowball offers.
