3 SF Giants players you may have forgotten were on the 2022 Opening Day roster
While Duggar was a part of the Giants for what feels like forever, his tenure also ended poorly and since he's bounced around the league so much since his departure, it'd be easy to forget that he cracked the Opening Day roster just last season.
Always a light-hitting, defensive-minded outfielder, Duggar just never produced enough at the big league level to warrant a longer tenure on the team. As a matter of fact, he hada combined .242 average and 82 OPS+ in over 250 games as a Giant. Of course, defense matters as well, but he just hadn't done enough to earn playing time over other up-and-coming outfield options.
After hitting just .160 in 10 spring games, the Giants carried Duggar on the Opening Day roster primarily thanks to the past five years they had had together. He made it into just 12 games in the regular season before being traded to the Rangers for Willie Calhoun in June.
Calhoun appeared briefly for the Giants, recording one hit in eight at-bats before becoming a free agent. On the other hand, Duggar has been on the move quite a bit. He played for the Giants, Rangers, and Los Angeles Angels organizations in 2022. The left-handed bat joined up with ol' pal Luke Williams with the Los Angeles Dodgers organization for the 2023 season.
