Middle infield depth
There are still questions surrounding the youth of Mauricio Dubon and a decline in production from Brandon Crawford. They are expected to be the starting second baseman and shortstop to start the year, respectively, but that could change by the end of the year.
The team still has Donovan Solano, arguably the most pleasant surprise of 2019, as an insurance policy. However, it would not hurt to add a little more depth in the likely event that Solano doesn’t match his production from last year.
Veteran Neil Walker be a solid signing. As a switch-hitter off the bench who could also play second base, he is a great option to have behind the still-developing Dubon as he tries to find his footing.
Another veteran, Ben Zobrist, is also available and he would be a great option coming off the bench. He would satiate Zaidi’s never-ending thirst for players with versatility as Zobrist is capable of playing in the outfield as well.
The offseason may be drawing to a close, but the Giants still have an opportunity to improve their team if they so choose.
