The San Francisco Giants are dwindling on the edge of contention. Here are five players who need to step up in the second half as the Giants push for the postseason.

The San Francisco Giants are in an interesting spot. They’re four games back of the division as they start the second half, and are four games back of a wild card place. The problem though, is that they’re only two games over .500, and sitting fourth in the West. They have some divisional hurdles to clear in the second half, especially as the Dodgers begin to loom large. With their acquisition of Manny Machado, the Giants will certainly need to have their big names step up as well.

With the first half of the season being rather tumultuous in terms of injury, and performance, the Giants will look to straighten that out as they go on in the second half. There are plenty of dudes who need to step up going forward, but we’re only going to name five. I’m sure you can figure out who a few are, but will any surprise you? You’ll just have to click through and find out! Time to get started on our five players who need to step up if a postseason run is going to come together.
