The Giants are interested in Royals outfielder Scott Podsednik, according to AOL.com's Jeff Fletcher. The Royals and Giants have already discussed prospects in a David DeJesus trade, but since he is out for the season, the Giants are willing to negotiate for Podsednik instead. 

Podsednik is having a fairly strong season, hitting .308 with 5 home runs in 93 games this year.

The Giants are in need of left-fielder and would probably benefit from the addition of a speedy outfielder like Podsednik. The Royals, in need of any sort of help they can get, would benefit from a solid prospect who may turn into a major league contributor.
