Steven Duggar

Yet another player who fits the “fast and plays good defense but can’t hit” mold, Steven Duggar is another option in center field.

He brings a similar skill set as Hamilton, but he hits for a little more power and is nowhere near as good a base stealer.

He began 2019 as the starting center fielder, but injuries and the acquisition of Kevin Pillar pushed him out of the outfield picture by the end of the season.

He would really have to hit his way onto the team, and thus far he hasn’t done that, going 4-for-21 with nine strikeouts in spring training.

If he doesn’t get hot over the next few weeks, he will probably start the year at Triple-A.
