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.
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.
Do you expect there to be interest in Schierholtz?
