Levine also noted that the Giants' scouting presence at Wrigley Field goes back to May.
The Cubs led the NL Central with a 53-44 record entering Saturday, and could be looking to add a significant piece before the July 31 trade deadline.
Why would the Giants be socuting the Cubs' big league team rather than their minor league squads? It's possible the Giants could ask for a young, controllable player off the major league roster.
