3 Giants players you may have forgotten were on the 2022 Opening Day roster
By Eric Treuden
Last year, the SF Giants set an all-time record in a peculiar way. The team used a whopping 66 different players throughout the course of the 2022 regular season.
This mark comes up just short of the 2021 Chicago Cubs, who used 69 different players that year, which is just nuts.
I won't blame you if there are a few names you have forgotten from last year's squad. Heck, even on the Opening Day roster there were a handful of names that didn't make it very far into the season before being banished.
3 SF Giants players you may have forgotten were on the 2022 Opening Day roster
1. Infield Mauricio Dubon
Dubon actually spent parts of four seasons in a Giants uniform, but never did anything noteworthy and is certainly a name that will make you say, "wait, he was on that team?"
In 177 games, he had a combined 89 OPS+ for the Giants with a .259 average. He had been a decent backup infielder and occasional outfielder for the club but could never hit to save his life.
In 10 spring appearances prior the regular season, Dubon had a .280 average with two home runs, seven runs scored and six driven in. His bat seemed to be coming around a bit. This did not continue into the regular season, though. In 21 games for the Giants before being traded to the Astros, he managed to hit for a .239 average with just three extra-base hits, ending his tenure with a whimper.
