Grilli in the Orange and Black?

We're now down to the nitty gritty of signings for the Giants, per John Shea of the SF Chron. After recapping that the giants signed Affeldt, Pagan and Scutaro, he reports this -- 

Now the focus is on what Evans called the “next market” –  a right-handed hitter to platoon in left and right-handed reliever.
The Giants were interested in reliever Jason Grilli, who was leaning elsewhere as the meetings finished.
The Giants neither selected nor lost anyone in the major-league phase of Thursday’s Rule 5 draft. In the Triple-A phase of the draft, the Giants acquired pitcher Scott Shuman, who has a strong arm but not much control. Check this: 47 walks, 54 K’s in 34 innings at Double-A. The Giants lost a pitcher, Cameron Lamb, to the Astros. He had a 2.42 ERA in nine games for Salem-Keizer.

Jason Grilli has been around for 10 season and racked up a WAR of 2.8 in 330 games -- not too impressive
