San Francisco Giants' 5 Biggest Surprises so Far This Season
Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports
Buster Posey hit his first home run of the season this past Sunday.

The San Francisco Giants are off to a very solid 13-7 start. In these first 20 games, we have seen several noteworthy performances, some good and others lackluster.

2012 MVP Buster Posey hit his first home run of the season on Sunday against the Padres and has generally been struggling at the plate. Posey had two hits on Monday night, including a game-tying home run off David Hernandez.

Manager Bruce Bochy played him sparingly in spring training, which may have contributed to his sluggish start in April. 

Posey has a track record of success and has been swinging the bat better of late, so expect him to come around very quickly. Although Posey's slow start has been a bit of a surprise, he should be just fine.

There are five other Giants whose first months are even more surprising, and we will see if the early trend is something that will continue or if it's an aberration. Let's take a closer look at these five players.
