Report: Giants among teams talking to Twins about Berríos

CNN 31 December, 1969 - 06:00pm

For the first-place Giants, they will likely look to add some combination of pitching and hitting before Friday afternoon. They've already been connected to the top starting pitcher on the market in Max Scherzer, and now Farhan Zaidi and the Giants appear to be interested in another top of the rotation arm. 

MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Thursday, citing sources, that the Giants are among the clubs interested in Twins pitcher  José Berríos.

The 27-year-old righty is 7-5 with a 3.48 ERA in 121 innings pitched this season and has one more arbitration year on his contract before hitting free agency in 2023.

Berríos has been rather consistent throughout his career, hovering around 200 innings pitched his previous two full seasons. His ERA usually hovers in the mid-to-high 3's and could slot in anywhere from the second to the fourth spot in the rotation. 

The Giants will have plenty of competition for Berríos' services, as the Twins have reportedly already received offers from numerous teams. 

If the Giants are unable to pry Scherzer away from their NL West rival Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, Berríos could be a great option to add depth to an already over-achieving Giants starting rotation. 

The clock is ticking, and the Giants are clearly looking to make a move or two.
