The San Francisco Giants have been one of the best all-around teams in baseball over the past seven years. They managed to end up in either first or second place in the NL West in six of the past seven seasons, winning the World Series three times. In 2017, the Giants will be looking for another playoff run, but will be going at it with a slightly different group of players.
During free agency, San Francisco tweaked the bullpen in an attempt to improve their roster. Closers Sergio Romo and Santiago Casilla are no longer in a Giants’ uniform, along with relievers Javier Lopez, who retired, and Joe Nathan. Their pitching rotation should continue to be a source of strength, with stud ace Madison Bumgarner, followed by Johnny Cueto, Jeff Samardzija, Matt Moore and Matt Cain. Don’t be surprised is lefty Ty Blach slips into the fifth spot, depending on his performance at spring training. The acquisition of Mark Melancon, who split last season between the Pirates and Nationals was a bit of shock, however he could potentially elevate the Giants depleted bullpen. Health will certainly be a large factor when it comes to the infield, as it is with all MLB teams. Buster Posey is among the best catchers in baseball, and should continue to so his thing, batting in the third spot. First baseman Brandon Belt is steady and strong, with double-digit homeruns in 2016, while third base may end up as a spring training battle between Eduardo Nunez and Connor Gillaspie, with Nunez a slight favorite. Joe Panik is coming off a brutal season at second, and looks to return to his 2015 form this year. At shortstop, Brandon Crawford was very consistent in 2016, and is someone this team can count on across the board. The health of right fielder Hunter Pence is crucial for this team, and if he can stay on the field, could help these guys run for another title. However, the other
side of the outfield is still up in the air, with a potential platoon at left with Jarrett Parker and Mac Williamson. Both guys will need to prove themselves before the trade deadline, or the Giants just may decide to seek out a left fielder elsewhere.
When it comes to the San Francisco Giants, they are never out of the discussion for post season glory, at least in the past seven years. This team is exciting and talented and will be laying it all out there for a chance at another World Series berth.
