MLB Trade Rumors: 3 Giants Make Top-30 "Most Likely To Be Traded List"

As the 2024 MLB trade deadline approaches, three San Francisco Giants players are prominently featured on Kerry Miller's top-30 trade candidates list from Bleacher Report, suggesting possible significant changes to the team's roster.

Michael Conforto, ranking 24th, has drawn attention despite a hamstring injury.

Conforto's strong slugging numbers, reminiscent of his peak performance from 2017 to 2020, make him an attractive option for teams looking for outfield power.

The 31-year-old holds a .272/.323/.476 triple-slash line, with seven home runs, 20 RBIs, and 19 runs scored across 39 games played this season.

His prorated salary of over $6M is a considerable factor, but his potential impact upon return could justify the investment.

Matt Chapman, placed ninth on the list, is recognized for his exceptional defensive skills at third base and his power-hitting capabilities, especially notable in away games.

Chapman’s complex contract, featuring multiple player and mutual options and an $18M salary for the current year, adds layers of financial intrigue. His ability to change games defensively and deliver key hits makes him a valuable asset for teams willing to navigate his contractual commitments.

This season, the 31-year-old holds a .238/.307/.411 triple-slash line, along with eight home runs, 28 RBIs, five stolen bases, and 38 runs scored over 60 games played.

Blake Snell, positioned sixth, is perhaps the most compelling of the trio despite a rough start to the season.

The reigning NL Cy Young winner's credentials are underscored by a challenging year with a 9.51 ERA over 23.2 innings, compounded by injuries, recently landing on the 15-day IL with a groin injury.

However, Snell's high ceiling and the possibility of a mid-season turnaround make him a high-risk, high-reward candidate. His contract, which includes a $30M player option for 2025 and deferred payments, further complicates any potential trade scenario, requiring teams to weigh his past achievements against current performance issues.

These three Giants represent key figures to watch as trade discussions intensify, each bringing unique strengths and considerations to the table.
