Travis Ishikawa is once again included.

Arizona Diamondbacks v. San Francisco Giants

Another baseball season is right around the corner. Like, right around the corner. It’s kind of scary how around the corner that baseball season is, lurking about.

It’s the time of year where affiliates start getting ready for another season, and that’s certainly the case for the San Francisco Giants. On Monday, the team announced their coaching and player development staffs for their Minor League affiliates, as well as the Arizona Rookie League and Dominican Summer League.

If you’ve paid attention to the Giants coaching and development staffs in recent years, then there are a lot of familiar names. And if you paid attention to the Giants games in, say, 2014, then you’ll also notice that Travis Ishikawa is, once again, on the staff, as hitting coach for the first Arizona Rookie League team.

A few other important notes. According to The Athletic’s Andrew Baggarly, Shawon Dunston and Dave Righetti will be instructors at Spring Training. You may recall that Dunston and Righetti lost their jobs when the Giants laid off part of their staff as a response to the coronavirus pandemic and ensuing recession. Baggarly also notes that Pat Burrell remains in the organization as a roving hitting instructor.

And @giantsprospects notes that the Giants announcement confirms that organizations will be allowed multiple Arizona Rookie League and Dominican Summer League rosters.

Giants baseball. Coming soon to an affiliate near you.
