Eleven San Francisco Giants Staying in Organization
11. Shaun Anderson – When the Giants traded Eduardo Nunez to the Boston Red Sox, Anderson was the return. Since then, Anderson has jumped through the minor league system and ended 2018 pitching well in Triple-A.
While the Giants did not bring him up in September to make his major league debut, he very well might be an option to make the Major League Opening Day rotation in 2019.
Anderson could possibly be traded in a package for a front line starter, but the Giants might be more likely to keep Anderson and give him the job instead.
10. Reyes Moronta – Moronta only made the Opening Day roster in 2018 because of injuries, but he remained in the Major Leagues all season. His ability to pitch in high leverage situations was evident right away, and he had one of the most consistent seasons of any pitcher out of the bullpen.
He could also be a possible trade piece if the Giants want a bigger return, but of all the bullpen arms in the organization, Moronta might be the most exciting going forward.
9. Andrew Suarez – Andy Suarez was brought up to the big leagues a day after first round pick Tyler Beede, but it was Suarez who stuck in the Majors.
The left handed starter had some struggles, but he pitched extremely well overall and was one of the few bright spots in the 2018 season. With all the question marks heading into 2019, Suarez is certainly not one of them. He should be a big part of the rotation for years to come.
