SF Giants: Three left-handed infielders to target for Longoria platoon

3. Brock Holt

Brock Holt may be best known for throwing the slowest pitch for a strike ever recorded in MLB history, but when he's not throwing rainbows he can play a few infield positions and hits from the left side of the plate.

Holt could serve as a stopgap measure if the Giants want a more experienced option at second base to start the season with La Stella possibly missing Opening Day. Holt is not going to provide you the pop of a Villar, he has only 25 home runs in his 10 year career.

However, he is a veteran presence who could fill in for a short amount of time and give the Giants a bit more flexibility in the infield.

The Giants may ultimately decide that they are set in the infield heading into 2022 even with a group of veteran, injury-prone players. They do have younger options who have proven themselves at times like Estrada and Dubon.

However, if they conclude that they don't trust their other options or want to make an upgrade to their depth then it may be worth taking a chance on one of the players highlighted in this article.
