Buster Posey has reported to spring training much stronger and in great shape.

The grass has been cut and the fields manicured—spring baseball is upon us. The smell of hot dogs wafts through the air, as the fan next to you curses the nacho cheese he just dripped on his new jersey. Yes, after a long winter, it's time for baseball.

The San Francisco Giants are hard at work and hoping to rebound from an injury-plagued season, in which they fell far short of the playoffs. The Giants ended 2013 with a record of 76-86, well behind the NL West champion LA Dodgers.

General manager Brian Sabean has made several moves designed to bolster the Giants' roster. He was able to retain the Giants' own Hunter Pence, Tim Lincecum, Javier Lopez and Ryan Vogelsong. In addition, Sabean brought in Tim Hudson and Michael Morse, two veterans who have a lot to prove in 2014.

Unlike prior seasons when Bruce Bochy chose to do a lot of platooning, the 2014 version of the Giants should feature a fairly set lineup. Players will get their rest days, but barring injury, the eight position starters are all set.

The outlook is very promising, so lets take a closer look at the Giants' position players. We will address the pitching next week.
