According to a recent report from Jon Morosi, the San Francisco Giants are the latest team to inquire about Blue Jays infielder Eric Sogard.

According to Jon Morosi of MLB Network, the San Francisco Giants “have inquired to [the Toronto] Blue Jays about Eric Sogard“.

Morosi also tweeted that the Chicago Cubs, who he previously connected to Sogard, “have had recent trade discussions about [Sogard]”.

On the possibility of being traded to a World Series contender, Sogard told TSN’s Scott Mitchell that “if an opportunity comes where I could be part of a contender, that’d be neat.”

More from Jays Journal

Sogard was notably left out of the Blue Jays lineup Friday night, though there has been no indication that was because of any pending or close-to-completed trade.

Now 33, Sogard has slashed a tremendous .299/.363/.480 in 72 games for the Blue Jays this season, adding 10 home runs, 30 RBI, six stolen bases and 17 doubles.

Primarily a second baseman, he has also appeared in games at shortstop, third base, right field, and left field. He spent the 2018 season with the Milwaukee Brewers.

Sogard, along with teammates Ken Giles, Daniel Hudson, and Marcus Stroman, have all been the subject of recent trade rumours, with the Blue Jays reportedly having recent discussions with the New York Yankees regarding the former.

At this point in time, Sogard has only been speculatively linked to the Cubs and Giants, though many other teams are sure to have at least moderate interest. More to come.
