Giants general manager Bobby Evans said Friday that Steven Duggar could begin the year in the minors, in a platoon in the majors, or "he might very well make our club as our center fielder."
In other words, the club is heading into camp with an open mind as to Duggar's role, with the hope that he wows them. Duggar might be the Giants' best defensive option in center field right now, but he's not on the 40-man roster yet and only has 13 games of experience at the Triple-A level. San Francisco would prefer to use Austin Jackson more as a fourth outfielder, but they might be more likely to bring in someone like Jarrod Dyson rather than roll with Duggar in center.

The Giants believe that prospect Steven Duggar could be a solution in center field sooner rather than later.

"We value Duggar as a guy we can look toward to in the future, so it does affect how we view addressing that need this offseason," Giants general manager Bobby Evans said on Monday. "It does give us a mindset more short term." The Giants have been mentioned as a potential trade fit for the likes of Jackie Bradley, Jr. and Billy Hamilton, but this would suggest that they might target a stopgap option instead. It's also possible they are just trying to gain some leverage by talking up Duggar. The 24-year-old was limited to 44 games in the minors this season due to elbow and hip injuries, but he's coming off an impressive performance in the Arizona Fall League. He's a .292/.384/.427 hitter in the minors.
