Last week, it was reported by Fox Sports that the Giants were one of six teams showing "preliminary interest" in the nine-time Gold Glove winner.
Hunter hit .286 with 33 doubles, 17 home runs and 83 RBI in 142 games in 2014. He earned $14 million this past season.
On Wednesday, the Tigers acquired center fielder Anthony Gose from the Blue Jays in exchange for second base prospect Devon Travis.
