The San Francisco Giants Infield was probably the strongest position grouping of any on the Giants. Yes, the rotation was incredibly strong. But the infield accounted for the majority of run production. The home-grown infield did well for the Giants, and luckily this core will be around for a while.

The San Francisco Giants 2016 Season Grades is a series that we will continue through the next few days. We’ll follow the same format and grading scale. As a reminder, here is the criteria: To be eligible for a grade, a position player must reach 30 games played.  The grading scale will be on a little bit of a curve.

Each player’s grade is relative to their expectations, past performances, and anticipated development. On top of that, injuries will be taken into account when evaluating performance. Defense will be a good factor in their grade, especially in the infield.

Let’s get started!
