The resurgent Giants are poised to hold onto their top trade pieces, most notably one Madison Bumgarner, according to Jon Morosi.

“But I was told, at this point in time, that they are planning to keep Bumgarner. They’re planning to keep their big relievers as well. They may make a move but I would say it’s a smaller chance.”

While the Giants have pushed to within 2.5 games of the second wild-card spot, the standings are congested. Entering play on Monday, the Cubs, Cardinals and Nats are all tied for the top position. The Phillies and Brewers sit a game back of the leaders.

“They seem to be content… Going forward here, I think the fact this is Bochy’s last year is playing into this. And, again, based on what I was told by sources yesterday, the Giants are expecting to keep their big pitchers right now and to try and make a run at this thing between now and the end of the season.”
