Following Cabrera’s suspension, the Giants have used Gregor Blanco has their primary left fielder. The 28-year-old has hit.234/.329/.340 on the season, and only .161/.250/.161 this month.
Several players, including Juan Pierre of the Philadelphia Phillies, Scott Hairston of the New York Mets, Jeff Francoeur of the Kansas City Royals and Alfonso Soriano of the Chicago Cubs have all been listed as potential trade targets for the Giants.
San Francisco’s options are limited, and they obviously won’t be able to fill the void left by Cabrera, who hit at a clip of .346/.390/.516 with twenty-five doubles, ten triples and eleven home runs prior to his suspension.
Which player should the Giants target to help solve their left field issues?
