Player Notes
Giants general manager Brian Sabean said Saturday that the team does not plan to talk to free agent right-hander Max Scherzer.

Advice: The Giants have talked to James Shields this winter, so there were some rumblings that they may have some interest in Scherzer as well, but it appears that they have no desire to entertain the massive payday that he is looking to find. With the Yankees also out on Scherzer, his market for potential destinations appears to be dwindling.

Yankees president Randy Levine indicated Thursday that the chances the team will go after Max Scherzer are "virtually none."

Advice: "The chances of us bringing in a guy for six [years] and $25 million or over in my opinion is virtually none,'' Levine said. "At the end of the day you have to be realistic in any organization.'' CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has been beating the Scherzer-to-the-Yankees drum for a while, or at least saying it's a possibility, but every other outlet has consistently said it's not going to happen. The Yankees need rotation help but already have two massive pitching contracts on the books with CC Sabathia and Masahiro Tanaka.

Andrew Marchand of ESPN New York hears that the Yankees are "absolutely not" in on free agent right-hander Max Scherzer.

Advice: Some have suspected that the Yankees are lying on the weeds in the situation, but they appear to be setting their sights a bit lower in free agency. The market for Scherzer has been suspiciously quiet so far this winter, but he's intent on landing a contract around $200 million.

Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports the Cardinals are not active suitors for Max Scherzer.

Advice: It's not the first time the team has openly denied interest in the pitcher, but they continue to be linked to him. That's likely due in large part to the fact that Scherzer went to Parkway Central High School in the St. Louis area, making the Cardinals a potential homecoming for the 30-year-old. Despite the Cardinals' disinterest, Scherzer has no shortage of suitors around the league.
