5. Steven Duggar – The Giants have won three World Series with castoff center fielders like Andres Torres, Angel Pagan and Gregor Blanco.

Duggar showed in his rookie year that he could very well be the center fielder of the future for the Giants.

The sixth round pick in the 2015 draft has spent the last few seasons at each level of the minor leagues trying to convince the organization that his bat can travel as well as his glove.

His defense is outstanding and a huge upgrade from what the Giants have had in recent years and also better than Torres, Pagan or Blanco.

What’s even more exciting is his offense. Always known for his glove, Duggar was starting to show what he is capable of at the plate before a season ending injury.

If he could become the team’s every day center fielder and leadoff hitter, the Giants rebuild could happen much quicker than feared.

For a team built on pitching and defense for so many years, it is exciting to think that center field at AT&T Park will be covered.
