The 2020 MLB season starts for the San Francisco Giants on Thursday night, and the team has announced its Opening Day roster.

The San Francisco Giants announced their official Opening Day 30-man roster less than 12 hours before their season-opening matchup against the Los Angeles Dodgers

As expected, the Giants roster is rife with veteran contributors with something to prove and young players trying to make a name for themselves. Of course, this roster will also look quite a bit different in a few weeks, as the team was forced to place both Brandon Belt and Evan Longoria on the disabled list earlier today.

But while the announcement lacked the punch fans were hoping for, it features a ton of depth around the diamond. That will be important when the rosters begin to shrink from 30 to 28 players in two weeks, and then to a final size of 26 players two weeks later.

With that in mind, we decided to take a look at the announcement, and discuss five key takeaways from the opening day roster.
