The Giants are now considering trying to picking up a fifth starter in addition to extra offensive help, a need that arose with Randy Johnson's recent injury.

The acquisition of former batting champion Freddy Sanchez, plus first baseman Ryan Garko, bolstered the Giants' lineup, but they haven't ruled out trading for more offense. They've scouted Miguel Tejada, Carlos Lee, Josh Willingham, Nick Johnson, Mark Teahen and Marco Scutaro, among others, though some of those players are no longer of interest after the addition of Sanchez and Garko.

Reds starter Bronson Arroyo is available, but he has $17 million to go on his contract through the end of next season. The Diamondbacks' Doug Davis and Jon Garland are also available.
