San Francisco Giants outfielder Nate Schierholtz is the type of player that figures to draw interest as the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline approaches, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Remember Giants outfielder Nate Schierholtz? He’s the kind of player who figures to draw interest at the deadline.

Schierholtz (.248, 3 HR, 12 RBI) has lost playing time, he is out of options and other teams still view him as a valuable asset.

Rosenthal reports the Schierholtz has lost playing time recently, as the Giants have gone with a regular outfielder of Gregor Blanco, Angel Pagan and Melky Cabrera from right to left.

Schierholtz received 60 at-bats in April, maintaining a line of .283/.313/.550 over that span with seven extra-base hits and nine RBIs. Since then, the 28-year-old has only registered 33 and 32 at-bats in May and June, and his season totals have leveled off to .248/.314/.400.

Over his six seasons in the bigs, Schierholtz has hit at a career clip of .270/.318/.408. He is making $1.3 million this year and won’t hit free agency until following the 2014 season.
