The outfield churn is still impressive

You remember 2019. We all remember 2019.

You remember that on Opening Day the San Francisco Giants started Connor Joe in left field and Michael Reed in right field.

You remember that the duo combined for one hit — not in the game, but in their entire Giants tenures — before being designated for assignment.

You remember that the Giants used 64 players over the course of the season, setting a National League record.

That was a time, wasn’t it?

We knew that the Giants wouldn’t repeat that feat in 2020, because there would only be 60 games, and a limited player pool of available bodies at the Alternate Training Site.
