5 takeaways from the SF Giants sweep against the Colorado Rockies

4. Mike Yastrzemski is teasing SF Giants fans with what looks like a return to career best form

Mike Yastrzemski burst onto the scene in 2019, and while he's had some good years since that, he's never quite hit his career best peak, but his start to 2022 could be just that.

He missed some time due to the covid outbreak that hit the Giants a few weeks ago, but after returning, he's being more patient than ever at the plate, and it's resulting in some great at bats that give Giants fans true hope.

If Yaz can come anywhere near career best form with the rest of the team the way they are, this makes the Giants true contenders, and given his recent performances against Colorado, it's fair to be optimistic.

5. A healthy Alex Cobb gives this SF Giants rotation scary potential

In his first outing of the year, Alex Cobb looked electric, and while he dealt with his own injury issues, his start against Colorado once again looked electric.

He wasn't quite at his best, but over the 5.1 innings he threw, he flashed potential of his best, and if he can be the Giants consistent No. 4 for the rest of the way, this team is going to be tough to beat.

With Cobb, Rodon, Alex Wood and Logan Webb, any playoff opponents of the Giants will be up against it, and a healthy Alex Cobb will make the race to the playoffs against the Dodgers and Padres a whole lot easier.
