We’re just a little over a month away from Winter Meetings, and the hot stove is already heating up. Jason Heyward is perhaps the most intriguing of the Chicago Cubs players being mentioned in potential trade talks so far.

Rumors have been circulating lately that the Chicago Cubs are exploring options to trade Gold Glove outfielder Jason Heyward. Most notably involving the San Francisco Giants and a familiar face in Jeff Samardzija.

Phil Rogers of reported that the Giants have interest in Heyward and are willing to part with Samardzija and Mark Melancon to get him. It isn’t known if the Giants or the Cubs are serious about making a deal in any capacity, but the fact this rumor has even been floated is interesting.
