MLB Rumors: San Francisco Giants Interested in Starter

The San Francisco Giants are reportedly making a real push to sign Sean Manaea, according to Susan Slusser. 

Manaea is coming off of a down season with the San Diego Padres that saw him sport an 8-9 record and 4.96 ERA in 30 appearances. This is far below what we've grown to expect from the 30-year-old lefty, so perhaps a change of scenery could help him find his old a form. That is likely what the Giants are thinking by making a push for him, too.

Manaea was the Athletics' top pitcher when he was with them his first six seasons in the league. Since San Francisco is close to Oakland, it does seem quite possible that he would be open to signing there. Alas, let's see if the Giants end up being the third California team Manaea plays for from here.
