A new name that the Indians are interested in is Giants third baseman Eduardo Nunez, according to ESPN's Buster Olney.

Ironically, the man known as the Panda was officially released by the team Wednesday.

After signing a one-year, $4.2 million deal to stay with San Francisco this past winter, Nunez will be a free agent at season's end. In 188 at-bats, Nunez has a.297/.322/.409 slash line with 19 doubles, four home runs, 26 RBIs and 17 stolen bases.

The Giants reinstated Nunez from the 10-day disabled list last Saturday after a hamstring issue handicapped him for several weeks, but he is healthier than another Red Sox trade target. The 30-year-old Nunez would certainly come at a cheaper price. The constant state of uncertainty with the team may be getting to Stanton. Production wise, however, he doesn't stand out about other players the Red Sox have been linked to like Prado and Jed Lowrie. That may be a more attractive offer for Dave Dombrowski and the Red Sox, who just promoted projected third baseman of the future Rafael Devers to Triple-A Pawtucket. He has committed six errors in 43 games at third this season. "So again, we're open-minded to doing it any way we possibly can".

Nuñez is essentially a utility player and wouldn't necessarily solve the Red Sox' power problems, but he would represent a slight upgrade over what they've gotten offensively at third base. Join the Chowder and Champions team!
