Coming into the 2013 season, the San Francisco Giants did not make many major changes to their roster.
Along with extending MVP catcher Buster Posey, San Francisco also brought back midseason acquisitions Hunter Pence and Marco Scutaro. The most notable addition was outfielder Andres Torres, who returned to the Giants after a season with the Mets.
Though the Giants’ starting pitching—the source of its recent woes—was unaffected in the offseason, the moves are making their impact as the Giants enter the heart of the season. With 58 games under San Francisco’s belt, it’s becoming clear which moves were a hit and which have fallen flat.
