Steven Duggar
25-Year-Old OutfielderOF
San Francisco Giants AAA
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Between his early-July debut and his late-August season-ending shoulder injury, Duggar appeared in 41 games for the Giants, hitting a modest .255/.303/.390 with two homers and five steals. With the Giants seemingly now committing fully to a rebuild, Duggar is expected to take over the starting center field job at the start of the regular season. Don't expect much of an uptick in performance in a more regular role, however, as it took a .354 BABIP to get Duggar to his mediocre slash line, and nothing in his prospect reports suggests an elite talent in any area of the game. One possible area of growth for Duggar would be his walk rate, which sat at just 6.6% in his rookie campaign after sitting in double digits at each of his stops in the minors. More walks would give him more opportunities to show off his decent speed, which may be his primary avenue to fantasy value in 2019. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Duggar hit safely in all three of his rehab games with Sacramento, but apparently the Giants are content with their current outfield options, so Duggar will have to bide his time for a while yet. The 25-year-old has struck out at a 28.8 percent clip and has been below-replacement level overall in his 67 games with the big club this season, so this move is justified.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2018
2017
After missing over half the minor-league season with hip and elbow injuries, Duggar reestablished his value in the Arizona Fall League. He hit .263/.367/.421 with three home runs, nine steals (on 10 attempts) and a 21:12 K:BB in 20 games. The 24-year-old also really impressed with the glove, and the Giants now view him as their center fielder of the future. Despite his success rate on the bases in the AFL, he is a borderline plus runner, so steal totals in the 20-to-30 range may be a bit unrealistic, although he could flirt with 20 in his first few seasons. His on-base skills are legitimate, as he has never posted a walk rate below 10 percent. This should allow him to eventually profile in the leadoff spot for the Giants, which would be a boon for fantasy owners, as he needs to score runs to make up for the fact that he likely won't be driving many in. He has a chance to open the year in a center field platoon with Austin Jackson, starting against right-handed pitchers.
Duggar displayed his major-league ready approach at the plate in 2016, batting .321 while getting on base nearly 40 percent of the time with Double-A Richmond. While his contact is ready for the majors, his power is nearly non-existent. He hit just one home run in 276 plate appearances in 2016. If the power doesn't develop over time, then Duggar will be nothing more than an empty batting average for fantasy purposes as he doesn't project to be a big base stealer either. The 23-year-old will likely be promoted to Triple-A Sacramento to start the 2017 campaign.
