Giants' Samardzija faces Pirates amid trade rumors

SAN FRANCISCO -- Veteran right-hander Jeff Samardzija will take the mound amid trade rumors Wednesday afternoon when he pitches for the San Francisco Giants against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Samardzija's name hadn't been as popular in trade speculation this month as that of teammate Eduardo Nunez. On Tuesday night, the Giants dealt their third baseman to the Boston Red Sox for minor league pitchers Shaun Anderson and Gregory Santos.

Now the eyes of scouts who stick around for the series finale in San Francisco can focus on Samardzija, who was acquired at the trade deadline by the Oakland Athletics from the Chicago Cubs in July 2014 under similar circumstances.
