While nothing appears imminent, Giants assistant general manager Bobby Evans told MLB Network Radio on Sunday morning that the team is "staying engaged" with the Tampa Bay Rays about a possible trade for infielder/outfielder Ben Zobrist.
On Friday, while it was reported that the Giants would not be signing free agent pitchers James Shields or Max Scherzer, the report stated that they were "still trying to work a deal on Zobrist."
Zobrist has spent his entire nine-year major league career with Tampa Bay. He's a .264 hitter with a .354 on-base percentage.
The 33-year-old is in the final year of a six-year, $30 million deal and will make $7.5 million in 2015.
Versatility is a huge selling point on Zobrist as he spent time playing second base, shortstop and all three outfield spots during 2014. He started 17 games in left field for the Rays last season.
