2021 Player Reviews

Player reviews for everyone on the 2021 Giants.

Hey, (La) STELLA!

Tommy La Stella’s first season as a Giant was mostly derailed by injury, but his approach to the plate fit well with the team’s hitting ethos.

2021 Player Review: Scott Kazmir

Kazmir’s return to the Majors was brief and uneven and probably inconsequential for the Giants 2021 season.

LOL Marlins, Jarlin García is good

And he proved that again this year.

Thairo Estrada became a thing in 2021

The infielder wasn’t on your radar when the season began, but he certainly was when the year ended.

Where there’s a Wil, there’s a way

Wilmer Flores flexibility in the infield helped Kapler and the Giants weather infield injury woes all season.

Steven Duggar is my kind of guy.

Steven Duggar came up clutch in some big moments for the Giants in 2021. I’m a fan. I hope he sticks around.

The difficult season of Dubi

Mauricio Dubón didn’t quite have the season he envisioned.

The Iceman Cometh

Rookie Camilo Doval proved himself in big situations in September and the postseason, making him the unlikely go-to when the Giants season was on the line.

Alex Dickerson goes down quietly

The lefty power hitter never quite found his role on the 2021 Giants.

A tale of two Discos

Anthony DeSclafani’s season was mostly really good, with a sprinkle of really bad.

Jaylin Davis had a hard-luck season

And it might have been his last with the Giants.

The likely last hurrah of Johnny Cueto

Good Giant.

The Shortstop

Brandon Crawford’s 2021 season was a thing of beauty.

In remembrance of the short-lived Tyler Chatwood experience

The veteran pitcher appeared in two games for the Giants, so naturally we should talk about him.

Kervin Castro arrived

The 22-year old reliever established himself as a core member of the bullpen for years to come.

‘Just Doing My Job’ : The Curt Casali Story

Curt Casali’s 2021 season was exactly what the Giants needed from their back-up backstop.

Kris Bryant: Year in Review

Kris Bryant was the gem of the Giants’ trade deadline. How did he fare over their final 60 games?

John (I miss Buster Posey already) Brebbia’s 2021 Year in Review

An incredibly in-depth analysis of John Brebbia’s season in which I don’t talk about Buster Posey at all.

Skye Bolt

Here’s a person who played for the Giants this year.

O Captain, My Captain

Brandon Belt’s 2021 was short, but wonderful and hopefully foreshadows more to come.

Tyler Beede’s comeback season didn’t go quite according to plan

He did return to the field ... but only briefly.

Joey Bart played this year, but only in the most literal sense

The Giants prospect had just 6 plate appearances at the Major League level.

2021 Year in Review: Caleb Baragar

Young bullpen arm was a casualty of the Giants unexpected success in 2021

José Álvarez had a quietly awesome year

The Giants leaned heavily on the lefty, and he rewarded them.
