On the heels of trading for Marlon Byrd on Thursday, San Francisco is reportedly in the mix for Drew Stubbs, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.
Stubbs was released by the Rockies on Friday after a second stint in the minors, and officially cleared waivers Sunday morning.
The Giants can only sign Stubbs to a minor league deal, but he would be eligible to join the team when rosters expand on Sept. 1, according to the report.
Stubbs struggled in a part-time role for Colorado this season, hitting .216 with 50 strikeouts in 102 at-bats. Last year marked a bounce-back campaign for the 30-year-old, as he slashed .289/.339/.482 (all career-highs) with 15 home runs and 20 stolen bases.
The veteran broke out the with the Reds in 2009, and also played a season for the Indians before landing with the Rockies in 2013. While Stubbs has played most of his career in center field, he has the ability to slot into any outfield position.
The #sfgiants have interest in Drew Stubbs, who just cleared waivers. Would have to be a minor league deal.— Jerry Crasnick (@jcrasnick) August 23, 2015
