San Francisco Giants: Is Kevin Pillar bad or just unlucky?

In the first month of this season, the San Francisco Giants acquired outfielder Kevin Pillar from the Toronto Blue Jays for a mid-level prospect (Jose De Paula) and two organizational depth pieces (Derek Law and Allen Hansen).

While Pillar has never made an All-Star team, he has been a solid starter over his career in Toronto. He immediately projected as the Giants best outfielder and he seemed like the perfect fit for the Giants.

A little over a month later, he’s in the midst of the worst season of his career.
