Report: Giants interested in outfielders Rosario, Bradley Jr.


The Giants still are looking to add an outfielder in free agency, and reportedly have zeroed in on two veteran targets.

Eddie Rosario and Jackie Bradley Jr. are targets for the Giants in free agency, league sources told The San Francisco Chronicle's Susan Slusser.

Rosario was non-tendered by the Minnesota Twins in December, and would provide the flexibility Farhan Zaidi has prioritized with Giants position players since he took over as president of baseball operations. Rosario can play all three outfield spots, and slashed .257/.316/.476 last season.

The 29-year-old has finished in the top 20 of MVP voting the past two seasons, and hit 32 home runs and drove in 109 RBI in 2019.

Bradley Jr. has a reputation as one of the game's better defenders in the outfield, hitting .283 with seven home runs and 22 RBI for the Boston Red Sox last season. With the Giants needing help in center field, Bradley Jr. unquestionably is the best defensive option at the position available in free agency.
