The San Francisco Giants have flown mostly under the radar at the 2010 MLB Winter Meetings, in large part because they’ve handled much of their necessary business. While Brian Sabean indicated the team is always looking to add depth, their deals with Aubrey Huff, Pat Burrell and Miguel Tejada were really the primary needs early in the offseason.
However, the Giants do still have that depth need, particularly in the form of a utility infielder. While Juan Uribe was solid at shortstop for them, his strength was in the ability to move around the infield. The team finds itself in need of a utility player, and they might find that in old friend Edgar Renteria. John Shea is reporting that the Giants have made a contract offer to Renteria to have him back as a utility man.
Other than the Renteria offer, the Giants have spent much of the 2010 MLB Winter Meetings denying possible deals. Brian Sabean has worked to quash rumors the team was going to deal OF Aaron Rowand and that the team might be interested in Scott Boras clients Rick Ankiel and/or Johnny Damon.
Finally, the team did meet with 6’7 lefty Andrew Miller on Tuesday. Miller split 2010 between the Florida Marlins and their A and AA teams in Jupiter and Jacksonville, Florida. Miller would start the season at Triple-A Fresno and potentially grab a spot in the big league bullpen if things worked out.
