Earlier today, when talking about the trade for Jeff Keppinger, GM Brian Sabean referred to "something bigger" that he was working to complete. I can’t be sure he was referring to Twins outfielder Michael Cuddyer, but I’m told that the Giants recently expressed interest in him with an eye toward playing him at second base. Cuddyer has played 13 games at second base this season and Giants scouts felt he was serviceable at the position. But the Twins had a steep asking price and so Sabean revisited the Astros because Bruce Bochy needed immediate help and he knew he could close the Keppinger deal with a phone call. With Sabean still determined to upgrade the offense and "lengthen the lineup," I wouldn’t rule out the Giants revisiting Cuddyer in the next 10 days. Whether the Twins adjust the price is another matter.
