USA Today's Bob Nightengale reports that the Red Sox "continue to scout" Eduardo Nunez.
The impending free agent is a shoo-in to be traded before the deadline. Boston makes some sense as a landing spot for Nunez, as he'd offer insurance for Rafael Devers at third base and could move around to different positions if it looks like Devers is ready to contribute. The 30-year-old is batting .305/.330/.414 with four homers and 17 steals for the Giants this season. Jul 24 - 11:45 PM

Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-4 in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

Nunez and Miguel Gomez accounted for five of the Giants' eight hits on the afternoon. For his part, the veteran third baseman has turned in two consecutive three-hit performances and is hitting .305/.330/.414 with 35 runs scored and 17 steals over the course of 74 games played. He is a potential trade candidate with the deadline nearing.

Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 and drove in two runs in a win over the Padres on Saturday.

He also worked a walk in the long ballgame. He came to the plate with the bases loaded in the fourth inning and singled to plate two runs. The third baseman missed some time recently with a hamstring injury and has been mentioned in trade rumors of late. His 17 stolen bases are his best fantasy asset. He has a .299 batting average with four homers, 35 runs and 29 RBI in 73 games.

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) went 2-for-4 with an RBI single in Thursday's loss to the Padres.

Nunez was out of the lineup on Wednesday due to a pesky hamstring concern, but was back at it on Thursday showing no ill effect. A potential trade candidate before the deadline, the veteran third baseman is hitting .300/.324/.411 with four homers, 27 RBI and 17 steals in 71 games this season.
Jul 21 - 1:33 AM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is back in the Giants' lineup Thursday against the Padres.

Nunez wasn't in the lineup Wednesday but singled as a pinch-hitter later in the game. He's been dealing with hamstring issues for about a month and the Giants are obviously going to err on the side of caution with the trade deadline coming up. Nunez will start at third base and bat second Thursday against right-hander Jhoulys Chacin.
Jul 20 - 6:20 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) hit a pinch-hit single Wednesday in the Giants' win over the Indians.

Nunez was held out of the starting lineup due to hamstring tightness, though that was mostly a precautionary move as the 30-year-old third baseman is one of the Giants' more attractive trade chips. There's known to be serious interest from the Red Sox. If he's healthy, Nunez is almost certain to be dealt before the July 31 deadline.

Eduardo Nunez is out of the Giants' starting lineup on Wednesday due to hamstring tightness.

Nunez is an important trade chip for the Giants, so they'll play this one safe. The 30-year-old third baseman has dealt with hamstring problems throughout this season, and throughout the latter part of his eight-year MLB career. USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported Wednesday morning that Nunez is drawing serious interest from the Red Sox.
Jul 19 - 2:46 PM

According to USA Today's Bob Nightengale, the Red Sox "have their eye on" Giants third baseman Eduardo Nunez.

Boston was known to be in talks for Todd Frazier before the White Sox shipped him to the rival Yankees late Tuesday night as part of a seven-player swap. Nunez is a decent pivot, though he doesn't hit for as much power as Frazier and has always carried durability issues. The 30-year-old impending free agent is batting .295/.319/.407 with four home runs and 17 stolen bases in 69 games this season for San Francisco.
Jul 19 - 12:13 PM

Eduardo Nunez posted a walk-off single in the 10th inning Tuesday, propelling the Giants to a 2-1 victory over the Indians.

Nunez collected two hits over five at-bats, starting a new streak after his eight-game run was ended in Monday's interleague series opener. While he doesn't provide a lot of pop, Nunez has posted 19 doubles with 26 RBI and 17 stolen bases across 275 at-bats to make himself a useful middle infielder option in plenty of fantasy formats.
Jul 19 - 4:24 AM

Giants activated INF Eduardo Nunez from the 10-day disabled list.

Nunez had been sidelined for a couple of weeks due to a strained hamstring. Prior to landing on the shelf, he was slashing .299/.323/.413 with four homers, 25 RBI and 17 swipes in 254 at-bats.
Jul 14 - 6:20 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is expected to return Friday against the Padres.

Nunez has had a few starts and stops in his recovery from a strained hamstring but should be ready to go for Friday night's series opener. After serving as the DH on Wednesday, Nunez is slated to play six innings at third base in his second rehab outing Thursday for High-A San Jose. He'll resume an everyday role at third base upon his return.
Jul 13 - 10:31 PM

In a late lineup change, Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is starting at designated hitter, rather than third base, in Wednesday's minor league rehab game with High-A San Jose.

The Giants have not yet offered a reason for the position switch in the rehab game, but the obvious concern, here, would be that Nunez is not yet ready to play the field. He previously had his rehab stalled due to renewed discomfort at the beginning of July. If there has been another setback, the team should pass along word. Nunez was expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday.
Jul 12 - 9:53 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) will play in minor league rehab games with High-A San Jose on Wednesday and Thursday.

Should Nunez make it through these two games without issue, he is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday. He might have been able to return earlier, but those hopes were scuttled after he suffered a slight setback with his left hamstring during the initial rehab assignment at the beginning of July. Nunez has been out of action for the past three weeks.
Jul 12 - 8:28 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the disabled list Friday.

Nunez was backed off his rehab assignment for a few days after feeling discomfort in his ailing left hamstring, but he'll return to game action for High-A San Jose on Wednesday. He's been on the shelf for the last three weeks.
Jul 10 - 6:14 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is on track to resume his rehab assignment on Wednesday.

Nunez felt some discomfort in his ailing left hamstring this past week while on his rehab assignment and was backed off for a few days, but he's apparently feeling better. The out-of-contention Giants figure to proceed cautiously with him.
