The Low-Down: This outfield group will be interesting, considering that some of them may end up in the bigs, and sticking. All four are candidates to play a part in the Giants season somehow. Duggar is being tipped to take over in center by the time the end of the year. You have Austin Slater who was really good last year, and would be the first one up if one of the outfielders fell to injury. Then you have Williamson who will be working on a new swing.

A lot of these players don’t want to stick here, they want to make their way up. Hopefully that will push them to much better performances than what happened last year.

Next: Giants offense getting into gear

As we’ve done with many of the others, if there was one “non top 30” guy to pay attention to, it would be Derek Law. No pitcher has had a fall from grace quite like Law’s. Law became one of Bochy’s most consistent relievers during his rookie year, but fell off significantly last year. He needs to find his stuff soon.
