SAN FRANCISCO (CBS Sports) — The San Francisco Giants are listening on potential trades for outfielder Hunter Pence, starter Tim Lincecum and reliever Javier Lopez, their three major free agents, but a person connected to the Giants organization pegged the price as “very strong” on Pence and Lincecum.

One reason the ask is high on both players, sources said, is that the Giants plan to make a qualifying offer to both after the year, which would bring them a coveted draft choice assuming neither player takes the offer.

The qualifying offer is expected to be slightly higher than the $13.3 million it was last year.
