MLB.com reports that the Giants tried to re-sign Beltran, but he wanted too much. So the team traded for the man who replaced Beltran when he was injured while on the New York Mets: Angel Pagan. Giants GM Brian Sabean said that talks with Beltran "never progressed past the preliminary stage," MLB.com reports. That is likely because the 34-year-old outfielder "was believed to be seeking an eight-figure annual salary on a multiyear deal," the site notes.
MLB Network reports that the market for the six-time All-Star "appears very thin."
