5 SF Giants players who will make the 2022 MLB All-Star team
4. Camilo Doval
For years, the Giants have had a great bullpen, and it was one of the greatest strengths of the teams that won three World Series together, but those teams never had a closer with the sheer velocity and ability of young Camilo Doval.
Though he struggled early in 2021, Doval returned in September and caught fire, eventually winning the closer role going into the playoffs, and at every step, he took the challenge head on, and seemed like one of the best relievers in the game.
His 2022 campaign got off to a rough start, but has had a solid bounce back, and if he stuff can be anywhere near as good as it was in 2021, he gives this team electricity at the backend of the bullpen, and a reliable closer for the first time in a long time.
5. Brandon Belt
The Captain was once one of the most promising players in the Giants farm system, and although he never truly put together an elite level season, the Giants stuck with him at first base.
In 2021, Belt finally showed the consistent power than fans have been begging for, despite missing lengthy times due to injury, but in 2022, many believe it will be the biggest year of Belt’s career thus far.
He has certainly started that way, and if Brandon can play in 140+ games this year, he may be a dark horse for MVP, but if his form from 2021 and the beginning of this campaign are anything to go by, the Captain will certainly have a season to remember.
