Here we’ll take a look at whose stock has gone up or down during the first three spring training games for the San Francisco Giants.

I know it’s early, but there have already been a lot of developments in camp. The San Francisco Giants are out to a good start with three straight wins, and there are a few players who have stood out in those three games.

However, there are also some players who have had a slow start to spring training who can’t afford to fall behind.

With so many people in camp, and so few spots available, it’s important that some of these players competing for bench jobs to get out to a good start.

Eventually they’re going to lose playing time as starters go deeper into games. Of course, with this being a World Baseball Classic year, there will be an opportunity for guys to get more playing time while the Giants players in the WBC are gone.

In the first three games we’ve already seen a couple of guys competing for the fifth starter spot in action. We’ve also seen the battle for back-up infielder heat up, as well as the battle for the starting job in left field.

It’s going to be an interesting spring training for sure, and we’re going to try and keep you up-to-date by doing a stock up, stock down a few times a week to see who is winning and losing jobs.
