The Giants have a handful of free agents still on the market and the division-rival Padres are reportedly talking with one of them -- a familiar face.
San Diego "has had discussions" with veteran right-hander Jake Peavy, according to the San Diego Union Tribune.
Peavy made $15 million last season and went 5-9 with a 5.54 ERA in his third season with the Giants. He was demoted to the bullpen when the team acquired Matt Moore at the trade deadline.
The 35-year-old broke into the majors with the Padres in 2002 and went 92-68 with a 3.29 ERA and 1,348 strikeouts to 435 walks over eight seasons with San Diego. The three-time All-Star won the NL Cy Young in 2007 when he led the league with 19 wins, a 2.54 ERA and 240 strikeouts.
