The San Francisco Giants won the World Series in 2010, 2012, and 2014. With an even year ahead, they may be in line for another title and would like to acquire some pitching to help in their pursuit.
The Braves asked the Giants for third baseman Matt Duffy or second baseman Joe Panik in return, but Cafardo writes that general manager Bobby Evans and executive vice president Brian Sabean aren't interested in trading either.
Atlanta has shown a willingness to trade so far, shipping shortstop Andrelton Simmons to the Los Angeles Angels and outfielder Cameron Maybin to the Detroit Tigers, so the Giants may continue to inquire about the Braves' two promising young starters.
The Giants used nine different starting pitchers in 2015.
Miller was one of baseball's hard-luck losers in 2015, earning a 6-17 record - including a stretch of 24 consecutive starts without a win - despite an ERA of 3.02
Teheran made 33 starts for the second consecutive season, tossing 200 2/3 innings and posting a 4.04 ERA.
