The San Francisco Giants still have some ongoing roster battles as spring training nears its end. What will the Opening Day roster look like?
At the midway point of spring training, we are finally beginning to get some clarity on who will comprise the San Francisco Giants 26-man roster on Opening Day.
The roster is far from set in stone, but we can make pretty good guesses as to who will be on the team at this point.
There are some surprises, both in terms of who will probably make it and who won’t. At the beginning of spring training, a guy like Jandel Gustave is someone I would have assumed would make the team based on his performance last year, but he was instead part of the first round of roster cuts.
Chris Shaw also seemed to be someone with a shot at making the team, representing the youth and power the team has craved. Alas, he was cut as well.
But this article is about who will make the team. The following slides will break down the likely members of the starting lineup, the bench, the starting rotation, and the bullpen.
Without further ado, let’s take a crack at projecting the 26-man Opening Day roster for the San Francisco Giants.
