The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting that the Giants plan to make a run at free agent outfielder Jason Bay. Bay, who has engaged in early talks with the Red Sox, is also expected to draw interest from the Mets, Yankees, among others.
Bay hit .267 with 36 home runs this season, but went just 1-for-8 in the postseason. Despite putting up career highs in home runs and RBIs, Bay hit 13 points below his career average and struck out a career high 162 times.
Still, Bay will be one of the most coveted free agents this offseason and could draw a deal worth 15-17 million dollars annually.
