On Sunday, the San Francisco Giants traded CF Austin Jackson, a free agent signing from this past offseason, and reliever Cory Gearrin to the Texas Rangers for cash considerations and a player to be named later. More on the trade here.
This trade may be a precursor to a bigger move for the Giants, as it frees up salary for a impact acquisition. More pertinent to Clemson fans is that it opens a spot for Clemson alumnus Steven Duggar in the San Francisco outfield.
In 2015, Duggar’s final season at Clemson, he hit .304 with an .864 OPS, 5 HR, 10 SB, and a sky-high 18.5% walk rate in 227 ABs. Prior to his call-up from AAA on Sunday, he was hitting .272 with a .773 OPS, 4 HR, and 11 SB in 316 ABs.
Duggar is not expected to hit for significant home run power in the majors, which is no surprise given he had 8 career home runs in college.
