The San Francisco Giants are discouraged about their chances of adding a "needle mover" in left field by tonight’s deadline, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports:

Rosenthal adds that if the club is unable to acquire a player of significance, they plan to promote veteran outfielder Xavier Nady from Triple-A.

The Giants are said to be seeking a right-handed-hitting outfielder. Yesterday it was reported that the club had dropped its sites from an everyday player to "an extra guy."

Nady spent the first part of the season with the Washington Nationals, but was released in late July after hitting .157/.211/.275 over 102 at-bats. The 33-year-old then signed with the Giants on August 5, and he’s hit .270/.343/.528 with five doubles and six home runs over eighty-nine at-bats with the club’s Triple-A affiliate.

Will Nady suffice or should the Giants make a push to acquire another OF?
