Which Giants outfielders will make the Opening Day roster?
Which outfielders will San Francisco Giants fans see on the Opening Day roster when the season begins on March 26?
The San Francisco Giants have undergone many drastic changes to their outfield over the last calendar year, including trades to acquire Kevin Pillar and Mike Yastrzemski who ended up being two of the team’s best hitters last year.
However, Pillar was non-tendered at the start of the offseason, and questions abound as to will join Yastrzemski in the 2020 outfield.
The start of spring training is now just days away and Opening Day is fast approaching. At this point, the Giants have seven outfielders on their 40-man roster, and a number of others headed to MLB camp as non-roster invitees.
There will be some tough decisions to make over the next month-and-a-half as they make final decisions on who will break camp on the active roster.
After the team hung around in the wild-card race last summer despite indications of a rebuild, the true rebuild will kick into full swing during the 2020 season.
Ahead we’ll take a look at how the roster might shake out from an outfielder standpoint, along with a closer look at the leading candidates for a spot.
