How 'bout Jeanmar Gomez to the Giants?

The Giants would like to add significant bullpen help, but they don't have the prospects to compete for the likes of the top relievers available, Jim Bowden writes. Enter Gomez, who could be had for a pitching prospect with mid-rotation potential. Bowden: Trades I'd like to see (Insider)

Giants do what they usually do at trade deadlines make precision under the radar moves that end up being significant acquiring Eduardo Nunez from Twins (remember Marco Scutaro and Javier Looez trades in past deadlines?) He fills in at 3B at least until Duffy comes back and then gives them versatile player who can also play 2B & OF. He leads AL with 26 SB with 12 HR .300 AVG. Twins get LHP Adalberto Mejia in return who profiles just as 6th or 7th inning reliever or 5th starter.
