To open the 2023 regular season, the SF Giants sit at 3-3, right at .500. This is where the club finished last year, too, and is a hump the team is surely desperate to get over after failing to meet expectations in 2022. The team is still filled to the brim with talent, despite the fact that it has one of the oldest groups of position players and pitching staffs around the league.
3 SF Giants players who made the Opening Day roster but won't finish the year on it
On the position player side of things, this year's Giants will feature largely the same cast as the previous. Mike Yastrzemski, Thairo Estrada, Brandon Crawford and LaMonte Wade Jr. are all back. Then there's shiny new outfielder Michael Conforto, who is making his triumphant return to Major League Baseball after sitting out last year with an injury.
For pitchers, Ross Stripling, Taylor Rogers and Sean Manaea are the three newest additions. Logan Webb, Alex Wood, Alex Cobb and Anthony DeSclafani are back to form 75% of the starting rotation while Camilo Doval and Tyler Rogers return to their crucial bullpen roles.
When the Giants announced their Opening Day roster, there weren't too many surprises. However, there are a few players who began the season on the roster but are not likely to finish the season on it.
