SF Giants 60-man player pool revealed

The San Francisco Giants announced their 60-man roster on Monday. A bit later than most clubs, but at least we know it.

They didn’t quite use all of it either, with just 51 players on what is officially the “player pool,” if you want to be technical. That leaves them nine spots to add players later.

Teams will be limited to 30 players for their major league roster with the rest serving as a taxi squad for when injuries or ineffective play inevitably arise.

The Giants announced 25 pitchers (17 right-handers, eight left-handers), four catchers, 12 infielders and 10 outfielders for their initial roster.

Some missing names from the Giants 60-man roster

One notable name that jumps out is first baseman / left-fielder Chris Shaw. He didn’t have a great spring training, going .167/.286/.167. He’s played 28 games at the major league level, with a .466 OPS across the past two seasons.

Per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports, Melvin Adon, Jandel Gustave, Kean Wong, Jose Siri are others from the initial 40-man roster who are not currently on the Giants’ 60-man roster.

Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic adds Cristhian Adames, Drew Robinson, Chadwick Tromp, Jake Jewell were non-roster invitees this spring who are not on the current list.

Among top prospects, outfielder Hunter Bishop was not added to the list. Kerry Crowley of the Bay Area News Group reported Bishop tested positive for COVID-19.

Some players to look forward to on the Giants’ 60-man roster

Catcher Joey Bart is easily the best-known prospect who has been added to the list of eligible players. He had a phenomenal spring and may now have a good chance to make his major league debut.

Fellow top prospects shortstop Marco Luciano and outfielder Heliot Ramos also made the cut.

Players are expected to report to camp July 1 with the season set to begin about three weeks later on July 23-24.
