After seeing Andrelton Simmons traded Thursday and Craig Kimbrel traded Friday, there was no big trade Saturday. There was a trade, just not a blockbuster. Bummer. There’s still plenty of offseason left though, plus the Winter Meetings are only three weeks away. Those are always fun.
On Saturday we looked at the extremely thin free agent third base market. We also looked at the Giants and their potential for a big free agent spending spree this winter. Here is a recap of Saturday’s hot stove news from around the league.

RUMORS & NEWS
Diamondbacks: GM Dave Stewart said he is “keeping a close watch” on Hiroshima Carp RHP Kenta Maeda, who is expected to be posted later this offseason. (ESPN)
Rockies: GM Jeff Bridich is open to trading prospects for pitching. “When I say we’re open to whatever, I mean it,” said Bridich. “I don’t think we’ll ever be in a ‘sell the farm’ mode. I don’t think that’s a wise decision for us. But you have to be open minded to things that can improve your ballclub.” (Denver Post)
The Giants are doing background work on David Price. (USATSI)
