Torres hit an unimpressive .221/.312/.330 clip this year after his burst out year in 2010 in which he sported an .823 OPS. As for Keppinger, his role as a utility guy is solid, though would have been a 'luxury' item for the Giants and his spoty defense can be suspect. Nevertheless, he will undoubtedly draw some interest around the league.  

As for Ramirez, he likely be the most sought over of the three after posting a tidy  2.62 ERA and 1.16 WHIP last year for San Francisco, along with a career 3.16 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.    

If the fish bite on any of these 'baits' the Giants could be in line to score some help at the shortstop or outfield position, maybe even both. With the free agent market the way it is right now, trades might be their best shot at getting some more talent this offseason.
