The San Francisco Giants were a pretty big disappointment in 2023. Going from being in contention at the top of the NL West at the All-Star break to missing the playoffs entirely yet again is a tough pill to swallow for a fanbase that has grown accustomed to winning.
However, the Giants are still making their mark on the 2023 postseason in a different way as there were a lot of former Giants players doing their thing in the playoffs this year. Zack Wheeler was famously a highly regarded prospect for San Francisco and he absolutely dominated for the Phillies in 2023 before they got eliminated in the NLCS. The list certainly doesn't end there and, in fact, there are a lot of former Giants that are about to take part in the World Series starting this weekend.
Here are 6 former SF Giants that are about to play in the World Series
The rules here are simple. To be eligible for the list, a player had to both be a member of the Giants organization at some point (prospects are allowed) and also had to have been on the big league rosters of either the Texas Rangers or the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2023. Not everyone will get rings obviously since there is just one winner after all or even play in the World Series due to injury/being bad, but all of these former Giants have shots at being able to call themselves World Series Champions when the dust settles.
