The season is over for the San Francisco Giants, but the team has built some solid momentum heading into next season.
The San Francisco Giants finished the 2019 season with a 77-85 record, which was just good enough to get manager Bruce Bochy over the 2,000-win threshold, but left the team well short of the playoff picture.
Compared to last year’s 73-89 record, the Giants improved their win total by four while starting the season with largely the same roster.
This offseason the team will be looking for a new manager and a new general manager, while also trying to fill a number of holes on the roster, including in the bullpen and outfield.
With the 2019 season now in the books, we can reflect by grading each of the individual performances from this past season. Grades will be applied to core players while excluding those who were designated for assignment, traded away, or not with the team for long. That notably excluded Mark Melancon, Drew Pomeranz, Sam Dyson, Derek Holland, and Joe Panik from the grading.
The infield will be batting leadoff in our evaluations.
