  • Giants interested in Wladimir Balentien

    Oh goodness. According to Henry Schulman the Giants are "musing" about obtaining Wladimir Balentien. Bad idea!

    One major road block is that Balentien is signed through 2015. There is no established process to trade a player between MLB and the NPB. Besides IMO Balentien is having a fluke season. This is his third season in Japan

    2011: .228/.314/.469, 31 HR, 61 BB, 131 K
    2012: .272/.386/.572, 31 HR, 64 BB, 92 K
    2013: .334/.460/.808, 57 HR, 94 BB, 92 K

    Besides where would Balentien play? Leftfield?
