The San Francisco Giants are continuing their search for a right-handed hitting outfielder, reports Jayson Stark of ESPN:

The suspension of Melky Cabrera left the Giants with a gaping hole in their outfield as well as their lineup. The off-season acquisition was a National League MVP candidate and the club’s offensive leader.

Following Cabrera’s ban, it was initially rumored that San Francisco would seek an everyday player to replace Melky in left. Names such as Alfonso Soriano of the Chicago Cubs and Jeff Francoeur of the Kansas City Royals were being tied to the Giants.

However, with the non-waiver trade deadline having passed, San Francisco’s options are slim, and Stark reports that the club has since lowered its sites to something more like "an extra guy."
