As we continue our spring training previews, today we will focus on the San Francisco Giants infielders.
The starters are pretty much set in stone, but there are plenty of players competing for back-up roles across the infield.
The goal during spring training will be to find the player that is versatile enough to play across the infield, and also deliver some quality at-bats off the bench.
Then we’ll also look at some of the younger guys who are mainly in spring training to get some experience for the future. Although, there is always a chance they could breakout and make the big league club out of spring training.
The Giants desperately need someone who can play shortstop to give Crawford a rest every now and then, which is why I think they brought Rollins in this spring. It will be interesting to see if the former MVP and switch hitter can return to some of his old form with the Giants this year.
We’ll start out by taking a look at the starters, which are pretty much locked in stone except maybe third base.
