Giants must fill center field void at Winter Meetings

The San Francisco Giants added Kevin Pillar just after the start of the 2019 season and he finished as the team leader in hits (157), doubles (37), home runs (21), RBI (87), runs scored (82) and steals (14) while playing 129 games in center field. All told, he tied for the team lead with 156 games played.

However, those statistics alone were not enough for the front office to feel their starting center fielder for most of 2019 should be tendered a contract this offseason, and he was cut loose into free agency.

As the roster stands here at the beginning of the 2019 Winter Meetings, it is fair to say the Giants are without a legitimate candidate for the starting center field job.
