The San Francisco Giants are in a difficult position, as the National League West team is in the last place of their division and the reality that it is time to rebuild is getting closer and the New York Yankees should be the first team they call.
To make the news even worse for the team in San Francisco, the team does not have many valuable pieces to change as a large part of their roster are veterans with difficult contracts to transfer for something worthwhile.
The only one who could get something important in a trade for the Giants is starter Madison Bumgarner.
The southpaw, MVP of the last championship of the World Series of Giants. in seven starts this year he has 3.92 ERA with only one win and with only 29 years in his last year of contract he is undoubtedly the most interesting pitcher in the exchange market.
Now, several teams are interested in Bumgarner, but the team that everyone thinks is the right one for a big change is the Empire of Evil, the Yankees.
The Bronx team, despite having problems with injuries, is in a good position to fight for the AL playoffs and the team needs a real AS to look for their first championship since 2009.
Bumgarner would be perfect.
But, what would occupy the Yankees to make a change?
The Yankees are one of the teams with the most prospects in all major leagues and the few that can put together a worthwhile package for Giants.
Baseball players such as Clint Frazier, Mike Ford, Domingo Germán, Jonathan Loaisiga, Albert Abreu, among many others, could be the basis of any change.
For the Yankees the only concern would be what to offer for a pitcher that you could lose after the season and that is something that will lower the value of Bumgarner in the exchange market, as the left-handed has indicated that he wants to stay in San Francisco.
The following package could be something interesting:
- Jonathan Loaisiga (# 2)
- Antonio Cabello (# 9)
- Thairo Estrada (# 19)
- Chance Adams (# 20)
- Harold Cortijo (# 30)
- Madison Bumgarner
Sure, that package takes a few more pieces, but it seems like a good starting point.
Will we see Madison Bumgarner in stripes?
There's only a couple of months left for that to happen.
