1. Barry Bonds (1993-2007)

Wins Above Replacement: 112.3

Bonds played 15 seasons for the Giants, but his first five included winning the Gold Glove while playing left field.

For all of Bonds’ offensive numbers over his career, it is easy for fans to forget how good Bonds was defensively. Several times in a Giants uniform Bonds would play the carom off the left field wall and get the runner at second base.

Overall, he played 1,976 career games in left field in San Francisco and had a career slashline with the Giants of .312/.477/.666 for an incredible OPS of 1.143. He also tallied 12 All-Star appearances and five MVP’s while with the Giants. Bonds is certainly worthy of our top spot as the greatest left fielder in team history.
