The San Francisco Giants are in a box as the trade deadline approaches. They're shopping center fielder Denard Span. But he has a career-low five stolen bases and a minus-18 Defensive Runs Saved, and he's generating minimal interest. Hunter Strickland is another potential Giants trade chip, but the deadline relief glut has suppressed his value. The Giants could decide to keep Strickland as part of their relief corps with Will Smith, Sam Dyson and closer Mark Melancon in 2018.
