Giants Rumors: Seeking Bullpen Help; Not Broxton or K-Rod

The San Francisco Giants are still on the lookout for bullpen help, but will not be players for Jonathan Broxton or Francisco Rodriguez, reports Danny Knobler of CBS Sports.

Speculated to be on the hunt for relief help since early last week, the first place Giants now have just five days to find a reliever they do see as the answer.

With Houston Street offered a one-year extension by the San Diego Padres and the Minnesota Twins' Matt Capps on the disabled list, the Giants' options for relief help are dwindling. San Francisco's remaining options could include Grant Balfour, Brandon League and Rafael Betancourt, though the team has been tied to none of them as of yet.

Despite losing 2011 stalwarts Brian Wilson and Guillermo Mota, the Giants' bullpen currently owns the fourth-best ERA in the National League at 3.33. But the pen has struggled to strike batters out, amassing a 7.78 K/9 rate, good for fifth-worst in the NL.
