Giants, Royals Were Scouting Jeff Samardzija

MLB RUMORS: Jeff Samardzija

Jeff Samardzija

Hank Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle and Jon Morsi of FOX Sports both report that the Giants and Royals were watching Cubs pitcher Jeff Samardzija last night.

The Giants have been dubbed a potential suitor. The Blue Jays and Orioles are in the mix just based off of team needs and not actual intelligence. However, the Royals are new in the talks.

Although it’s doubtful anything will come of it, the Cubs have reached out to Samardzija with an extension offer.

It’s likely he’s asking for upwards of $120 million and the Cubs won’t pay that.
