  Carlos Rodón trade rumors: 3 teams that need to call the Giants right now The San Francisco Giants are seemingly going to be sellers at the trade deadline and Carlos Rodón should be a hot commodity. The trade deadline is nearing as we have less than 72 hours until the deadline lapses at 6 p.m. E.T. on Tuesday and the San Francisco Giants look like could be selle rs. Jon Heyman of The New York Post reports that the Giants are 'now listening' on their veterans and Carlos Rodón and Joc Pederson could be among them. With Rodón, there are a lot of teams that need some starting pitching help. In 2022, Rodón was an All-Star. In 20 starts, he has a 3.18 ERA, a 128 ERA+, a league-leading 2.41 FIP, a 1.

The New York Post’s Jon Heyman reported on Saturday that the Giants are listening to trade proposals for some of their veteran players, including All-Star pitcher Carlos Rodon.

“#SFGiants also now listening on their veterans,” Heyman tweeted. “Carlos Rodon and Joc Pederson are among obvious candidates if they do sell. Rodon has an opt out and Pederson is free after the year.”

In addition to Rodon, Heyman says the Giants are open to trading Joc Pederson. Another team reportedly has interest in Joc.

The Giants’ decision to sell may not come as much of a surprise. Entering Saturday, the team was 49-51 and four games back of the Philadelphia Phillies and St. Louis Cardinals for the third and final National League Wild Card spot. San Francisco has especially struggled in July, winning just nine of their 26 games so far. The Giants began the month with a five-game losing streak, and bested that mark with a seven-game skid from July 21 to July 27.

With Luis Castillo off the board as of Friday, Rodon would likely be one of the more sought-after starters on the trade market. The 29-year-old has a 3.18 ERA with 148 strikeouts to 39 walks in 116 innings. Rodon signed a two-year deal with the Giants this past offseason, but can opt out after this year.

Cardinals rumors: St. Louis not done adding to rotation after José Quintana trade .
The St. Louis Cardinals are going in heavy on the starting pitching front. The St. Louis Cardinals had glaring holes in their starting rotation entering the trade deadline. They missed out on Oakland A's starting pitcher Frankie Montas as they traded him to the Yankees. The Cardinals got one starter after that, though, as they traded for José Quintana from the Pittsburgh Pirates … but they aren't stopping there. According to Derrick Goold of The St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Cardinals have been in contact with the San Francisco Giants on left-handed All-Star starting pitcher Carlos Rodón. They aren't alone in their interest, though.
