Giants: Which non-roster invitees will make Opening Day roster?

IF Yolmer Sanchez
When the San Francisco Giants acquired Yolmer Sanchez, there was immediate speculation that he could be a competitor for starting second base job.
In fact, that was the reason he gave for signing with the Giants, rather than other teams who were willing to offer him an MLB deal and a bench role.
The 2019 Gold Glove winner is unquestionably skilled defensively, but his offensive stats leave a lot to be desired. Last season, he hit .252/.318/.321 with two home runs and 43 RBI. Not exactly ideal for a team that could struggle to score runs.
However, with Mauricio Dubon still unproven, Sanchez could squeak his way onto the team as a fallback plan while the young up-and-comer continues to settle in at the MLB level.
