Report: Giants have internally discussed adding Jacoby Ellsbury

Jacoby Ellsbury

The San Francisco Giants are in pretty dire need of outfield help, and are looking at some curious names in a bid to make it happen.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, the Giants have internally discussed New York Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, and he believes that they may be willing to pursue a bad contract swap to bring in the one-time All-Star.

Ellsbury missed the entire 2018 season with a torn labrum in his left hip. His name popped up in some other hefty contract swap rumors this offseason, but nothing came of it.

Relying on Ellsbury would be a massive risk for the Giants, but it’s indicative of how much they’re struggling to find an outfielder right now. The 35-year-old is owed upwards of $42 million through 2020, plus a likely $5 million buyout in 2021.
