At the bottom of the NL West is a team that may ultimately challenge the Detroit Tigers for the dubious distinction of being the worst team in baseball. San Francisco has a handful of talented young stars, but no one to trust as a clutch performer. Spots two through cleanup will be manned by well-known MLB names. How well these aging stars can turn back the clock will be instrumental in how successful San Francisco is in 2020. There are good gloves on defense, and that may be even more critical than run production.

The Giants will be hoping for the health of the player slotted to be the staff ace. Their longtime stalwart number-one is now playing for a division rival. After a risky number one pitcher come a couple underachieving veterans and some youth. One of the best young pitchers in the organization probably won't be ready to toe the rubber on opening day. San Francisco doesn't seem to have the tools to do much but try to avoid being the worst team in the league. However, if a couple veterans find the fountain of youth, San Francisco could be an annoying team to play.
