SF Giants Team Grades:1/6th Of The Way Into The Season
By Gary Oversen
4 of 5
The defense has been stellar for the Giants this year. With only ten errors, tied for the second least in baseball, the infield and outfield is giving the pitchers the confidence to throw strikes.
Angel Pagan has taken well to left field, and Denard Span has shown a good ability to close on the ball in center. The infield is strong when it is healthy, and the loss of Ehire Adrianza stings a bit later in games. But Kelby Tomlinson has shaken off some early season hiccups to regain confidence in him.
Brandon Crawford continues to show Gold Glove defense, and Belt should get some votes with a full season.
