Ranking the SF Giants needs at the 2022 MLB trade deadline
By Nathan Smith
4. One of the SF Giants least needed positions is the outfield
One position the Giants may be overstocked in is the outfield, with names like Mike Yastrzemski, Austin Slater, Stevan Duggar, Joc Pederson, Darin Ruf and others all contributing so far in 2022.
If they can find themselves a star to anchor this lineup in the outfield, the Giants will certainly entertain that prospect, but with the outstanding seasons being had by both Yaz and Joc, they really don't need to add too much.
Depth is never a bad thing however, and with Heliot Ramos and Luis Gonzalez being unexpected contributors, the Giants really have all their needs covered in the outfield, freeing up this front office to explore needs at other positions when the August deadline rolls around.
5. With recent success the SF Giants don't need to address the bullpen
Despite struggles at points throughout the season from this bullpen, they've all been performing admirably, and now, with the return of Jake McGee, this unit is really set to hit their strides for the rest of the 2022 season.
Camilo Doval has been electric in recent times, and with standout performances from Jarlin Garcia, McGee and Dominic Leone, there's no reason for the team to address this spot.
There's a few names down in the minors ready to come up and contribute at anytime as well, but with such a deep and formidable bullpen, the Giants should feel comfortable that any name in this group can go out and perform in any given situation.
