The Giants are viewing Steven Duggar as their Opening Day center fielder for 2019.
Things can change depending on how the offseason plays out, of course, but right now it looks like Duggar is in line for the regular job and he could see time in the leadoff spot, as well. The 24-year-old hit .255/.303/.390 with two homers and five steals before a shoulder injury in August ended his season. Sep 30 - 2:29 PM

Date:

The Giants said after Wednesday's game that Steven Duggar (shoulder) has a tear in his labrum and doctors have recommended surgery.

Duggar is going to miss the rest of the season because of the injury suffered diving into second base on Thursday. Gorkys Hernandez likely will finish out the year as the Giants' primary center fielder, with Gregor Blanco and perhaps Austin Slater also seeing time there.
Aug 30 - 1:27 AM

Giants placed OF Steven Duggar on the 10-day disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Duggar briefly dislocated the shoulder on Tuesday while diving back to second base in the ninth inning of San Francisco's victory, and reportedly was very sore on Wednesday. In Duggar's place, the Giants are calling up Gregor Blanco. He's having an MRI taking on the shoulder, but the Giants will assuredly be cautious with the injury, so there's a chance we don't see Duggar again in 2018.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy told reporters on Wednesday that Steven Duggar will undergo an MRI on his shoulder and could be headed to the disabled list.

Duggar briefly dislocated the shoulder on Tuesday on a dive back to second base in the ninth inning of the Giants' walk-off win. The 24-year-old isn't in the lineup on Wednesday, and depending on the results of the MRI, could be placed on the DL retroactive to Tuesday.

Steven Duggar briefly dislocated his shoulder in the Giants' walk-off win over the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Duggar's shoulder popped out of place on a dive back into the second base bag shortly after he drew a one-out walk in the bottom of the ninth, but he stayed in the game and eventually came around to score the winning run. The 24-year-old outfielder is expected to get the day off Wednesday. He should ultimately be fine.
Aug 29 - 8:35 AM

Steven Duggar went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer to help the Giants beat the Diamondbacks on Monday.

Duggar's homer came in the second inning, and it was the second of Duggar's season and MLB career. The homer was the only offense in the game, as Patrick Corbin and Chris Stratton were both outstanding. Duggar is now hitting .261/.304/399 on the season in 40 games. He does have five steals in six attempts, but outside of that, he hasn't shown much in terms of fantasy relevance in 2018. He won't be 25 until November, however, so there might be some long-term value here.
Aug 28 - 12:58 AM

Steven Duggar went 1-for-3 with a two-run triple in the Giants' 3-1 win over the Rangers on Sunday.

Duggar stung a go-ahead, two-run triple into the right-center field gap off Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo in the fourth inning. It was the speedy outfielder's first big-league triple and 13th extra-base hit in 145 plate appearances this season. The 24-year-old rookie has a promising future in San Francisco, but his immediate fantasy value is limited to deeper mixed leagues and NL-only formats over the final five weeks of the year.
Aug 26 - 7:28 PM

Steven Duggar went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles and a run scored in the Giants' 11-4 loss to the Reds on Sunday.

Duggar recorded a pair of doubles against Reds starter Luis Castillo, but the Giants offense only mustered eight hits in a lopsided defeat. The speedy 24-year-old rookie has already racked up 13 doubles in just 122 big-league plate appearances. He's hitting .265 with 17 runs scored, one homer, 12 RBI and four stolen bases in 32 games. It feels like only a matter of time before he gets an extended look in the leadoff spot.
Aug 19 - 4:15 PM

Steven Duggar went 2-for-4 with a pair of stolen bases in the Giants' win over the Dodgers on Monday.

The 24-year-old rookie singled and stole second base off Dodgers ace Clayton Kershaw in the third inning, singled and scored a run in the sixth and also reached on a fielding error and stole a base in the ninth. Duggar is hitting .273 with 15 runs scored, one homer, 12 RBI and four steals in 108 big-league plate appearances this season. He stole 11 bases in 78 games at Triple-A Sacramento and is a viable source of speed in deeper mixed leagues down the home stretch.
Aug 14 - 2:44 AM

Steven Duggar went 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two runs scored and a run batted in in Saturday's loss to the A's.

Duggar's fourth-inning RBI double tied the game at 2-2. The Giants would surge ahead by a run before the frame's end, with the A's flipping the scoreboard a final time via a seventh-inning two-run homer by Mark Canha home run which proved to be the deciding blow. As for Duggar, specifically, the 24-year-old outfielder has now recorded a hit in all five of the games in which he's appeared at the big league level. That's a nice enough to start out your career. The rookie's connected for four doubles in the last two games.
Jul 15 - 1:42 AM

Steven Duggar doubled twice, walked once and scored three times against the A's on Friday.

Duggar came through tonight after going 4-for-17 with eight strikeouts and no walks in his first three games. He projects as a worse player than Gorkys Hernandez has been this year, but then, Hernandez projects as a worse player than Hernandez has been this year. Duggar will probably get some run as a starter over the next few weeks as the Giants try to figure out whether he's an upgrade. His fantasy potential is rather modest.
Jul 14 - 1:52 AM

Giants purchased the contract of OF Steven Duggar from Triple-A Sacramento.

Manager Bruce Bochy said he plans to platoon Duggar in center field with Gorkys Hernandez, with Hernandez also seeing plenty of starts in left. Duggar -- who is batting leadoff for the Giants on Sunday -- has batted .272/.354/.421 with four homers and 11 steals for Sacramento this season. He's worth a look in deeper fantasy leagues.
Jul 8 - 1:28 PM

Giants reassigned OF Steven Duggar to minor league camp.

Austin Jackson will open the season as the Giants' starting center fielder and Duggar is better off getting regular playing time at that position in Triple-A. He should arrive sometime in early 2018, likely as part of a platoon at first. The 24-year-old outfielder has long-term fantasy upside but isn't a great bet for big production this season.
Mar 28 - 12:28 AM

Steven Duggar went 2-for-4 with a double and a stolen base in Friday’s loss to the Royals.

The Giants have to be thrilled with the way Duggar has performed this spring, as he’s hitting .265 (13-for-49) with a .357 on-base percentage to go along with four homers, 10 RBI, and three steals. It says something that he’s still in the mix for center field duties, though he could be the victim of a roster crunch with Gregor Blanco likely to make the team as a non-roster player and Gorkys Hernandez and Jarrett Parker out of options. Either way, he doesn’t appear far off.
Mar 23 - 8:50 PM

Steven Duggar launched his fourth home run of the spring Monday in the Giants' 6-5 Cactus League win over the Athletics.

Duggar is known more as a high-average, high-OBP prospect, but the 24-year-old outfielder has been flashing big-time power these past few weeks in Arizona. He should make his major league debut by the middle of the 2018 season.
