Giants, Indians a fit?

The San Francisco Chronicle reported that the Cleveland Indians have extensively scouted the San Francisco Giants’ farm system. This heightens speculation that the Giants and Indians could be talking about a deal.

The Chronicle reminded that catcher-first baseman Victor Martinez and first baseman Ryan Garko of Cleveland might be targeted by the Giants.

Martinez’s $5.7 million salary rises to $6.2 million if he’s traded, and his club option of $7 million for 2010 would increase to $7.5 million. Regardless, he’s extremely affordable, and he’d give the Giants a presence behind the plate — assuming they don’t re-sign Bengie Molina — until Buster Posey’s ready. And if Posey proves he’s ready during the 2010 season, Martinez can play first base.
