The second week of Spring Training is typically when the veterans begin getting in to game action. This is especially true for the San Francisco Giants

Both Steven Duggar and Buster Posey made their spring debuts for the San Francisco Giants this week. Posey is returning from hip surgery, whereas Duggar is returning from shoulder surgery.

In addition to this, the Giants are seeing some positives from many of their starting position players.

Joe Panik showed up this spring in good shape and made some mechanical adjustments to his swing.

Evan Longoria is said to be in a better physical and mental state compared to this time last season.

Lastly, Brandon Belt has not slipped on a banana peel yet. This would inevitably put him on the shelf for 6-8 weeks. Watch out for those banana peels, Brandon!

The record is not nearly as important as the players getting game experience. Still, after a couple of rough seasons,  it would be nice to see the San Francisco Giants get a few more wins. Wins still seem hard to come by. Nevertheless, these are practice games.

The good so far include Tyler Beede, Joe Panik, and Travis Bergen.

However, the bad has really struggled. This group consists of Mark Melancon, Andrew Suarez, and Mac Williamson.
