Now that the Giants have addressed their top offseason objective by agreeing to a deal with Jeff Samardzija, they can turn their attention to left field.
Ben Zobrist has been a name linked to the team, and a meeting between the two sides has been scheduled, according to Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal.
No word on when the meeting will take place, but on Wednesday, ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reported that Zobrist would be visiting teams on the West Coast late this week.

On Tuesday, Yahoo Sports' Jeff Passan reported that the price on Zobrist continues to rise and that the thought among teams is that it will take at least four years and $60 million to get a deal done.
The Giants are in need of a left fielder after Nori Aoki signed a one-year deal with the Mariners on Thursday.
Zobrist split time between the A's and Royals in 2015, playing 69 games at second base, 45 games in left field and five games in right field. In 126 games, he hit .276/.359/.450 with 36 doubles, 13 home runs and 56 RBI.
Over his 10-year career, which started with Tampa Bay, Zobrist is a career .265/.355/.431 hitter with 265 doubles, 127 home runs and 567 RBI.
