The San Francisco Giants have a chance to win the opening series, and we have a chance to get a peak at Logan Webb, who was the star of the spring. Webb forced his way onto the rotation by allowing just 7 hits and 2 walks in 17 Spring Training innings, while striking out 22 batters.

Let’s see if he can carry it over into the regular season.
