The Giants and Marlins have discussed a trade that would send talented young left-hander Jonathan Sanchez to Florida for hard-hitting infielder Jorge Cantu. The Giants have inquired about some others who could possibly play third base for them, as well, including the Brewers' superb young shortstop J.J. Hardy. However, it appears Milwaukee has little desire to move Hardy, making the Giants look into Cantu, who was an excellent, low-cost pickup by Florida last year. Cantu batted .277 with 29 home runs and 77 RBIs for Florida after being released by the Reds last winter. Sanchez went 9-12 with a 5.01 ERA in 29 starts for San Francisco.

The Giants have been among the more aggressive teams in the offseason, signing free agents Jeremy Affeldt and Bobby Howry and negotiating seriously with free-agent shortstop Edgar Renteria, who is expected to sign with them, as well.
