5-Matt Duffy

Taking over for a 3-time World Champion and fan favorite can’t be easy. However, Duffy has done a fine job at third base after the departure of Pablo Sandoval. He has eight home runs and 41 RBI’s while batting .293 with a .335 on-base percentage. Though he is only 24 and in his first full season, Duffy gained some valuable experience down the stretch last season and getting some appearances throughout the Giants’ postseason run. He has played well vs. Arizona this season, with six hits in 19 at-bats and an on-base percentage of .381.
