According to major-league sources, the Giants were scouting Texas third baseman Hank Blalock, who went on the disabled list with a sore shoulder Tuesday. The Rangers contacted the Giants about Blalock, a 27-year-old with some (but not overwhelming) power. The Rangers covet Giants pitching, including Jonathan Sanchez.
Big-time strike out pitcher, only 25, isn't prone to the longball. Sanchez certainly would classify as a young MLB ready pitcher who hasn't put it all together yet but has the talent to be really good, something apparently JD is looking for. If JD had been able to pull this off I would have been extremely happy. Unfortunately since Blalock is now on the DL that's the end of that. This is a sign though that JD has indeed been active in trade talks.
Here is a write-up of Sanchez if you aren't familiar with him.
