San Francisco Giants: Who was the biggest disappointment in 2019?
The 2019 season had plenty of surprise performances for the San Francisco Giants, including from Mike Yastrzemski and Donovan Solano. However, there were plenty of disappointments as well.
On the bright side, the San Francisco Giants won 77 games in 2019, which seems like a minor accomplishment given the fact that they won only 73 games in 2018 with a similar roster.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, several core players really showed their age with numbers well short of their prime production. In addition, some of the younger players also took a step back in their development.
Despite all of that, the 2019 season still seems like a net positive for the Giants. They began to restock their farm system, while also finding some quality position players ready to make an MLB impact in both Yastrzemski and Mauricio Dubon.
On the financial side of things, the Giants found salary relief by trading away Mark Melancon and Sam Dyson, as well as designating Joe Panik for assignment.
With all that being said, there were still plenty of disappointing individual performances in 2019 that contributed to the team falling short of a postseason berth once again.
