The San Francisco Giants may very well be sellers. Their awful performance coming out of the All-Star break has the Giants two games below .500 and 3.5 games out of the third and final Wild Card position. If the SF Giants sell, Carlos Rodón figures to be their best trade chip and one of the top players available at the deadline.

What exactly could the Giants get for Rodón? While he is very good and could help a team win a title, he is likely just a two-month rental, and returns for rentals tend to be limited. The Giants would likely need to be overwhelmed in order to move him, considering they'd essentially be giving up on their season and they can give him the qualifying offer and get draft pick compensation if he leaves. So the Giants do have some leverage in this situation. Joc Pederson would be another target of other teams, but the return for him would be far less significant. Pederson has generally been a disappointment in San Francisco after a hot start. He's limited defensively and on the bases, and can only hit right-handed pitching.

Other questions addressed in today's mailbag: Is Giants ownership responsible for the team's relative lack of spending? If the Giants do buy, would Ian Happ make sense? How can the Giants stay competitive if they keep "cheaping out" on pitching? Are we sleeping on Trea Turner as a possible free-agent signing this offseason? Might the Giants target Joey Gallo if they fail to sign Aaron Judge?
