2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Joe Panik's placement on the DL with a back injury in early August created an opportunity for Tomlinson, who was a 12th-round pick by the Giants in 2011. Tomlinson had displayed decent contact skills and a proficiency on the basepaths throughout his minor league career, including at the upper levels during the first four months of 2015. While he struck out more often and was only 5-for-9 on stolen-base attempts while with the big club, his audition goes down as a success because he beat up on left-handed pitching (.913 OPS). The power was surprising - Tomlinson has only eight total home runs in five minor league seasons - but the 25-year-old has experience playing shortstop and could be in the running for a utility job this spring.
