Report: San Francisco Giants Interested in Hunter, Victorino

The San Francisco Giants are looking elsewhere to fill their void in the outfield presumably left by Melky Cabrera and Angel Pagan.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman, the Giants have shown interest in free agents Torii Hunter and Shane Victorino. The interest is presumably in response to
the team being unlikely to sign both Cabrera and Pagan this offseason.

Pagan is keeping his options open with the free agent market and is expected to receive a good amount of interest from other teams this offseason.

Cabrera's departure from the Giants late in the season is sure to make the team less likely to sign him, although his price tag seems feasible for teams (around $7 million).

Hunter visited the Tigers on Tuesday and has said that he would like to sign sooner than later, while Victorino would have a familiar face in the Giants' outfield with Hunter Pence. He is also the speedy center fielder that the Giants are looking for this offseason.
