Adam Duvall – OF

Duvall will turn just 28 years old during the 2016 season, but he has a good deal of experience at the upper levels with over 900 Triple-A at bats. He was acquired in the trade for Mike Leake during the 2015 season. Duvall is a solid defensive player at either corner outfield spot, but has seen most of his time in left during the 2016 season. He has some pop in his bat and a nice ability to turn around a fastball. It took Duvall a season at each level to rise through the Giants organization with nothing statistically to raise any eyebrows, except for raw power. The batting averages were ok, but he hit 22 and 30 homeruns at both levels of Single-A in both 2011 and ’12. He also added 30 and 24 doubles in those seasons, along with 23 the following season in Double-A. After hitting 27 home runs and 21 doubles in Triple-A in 2014, Duvall made his big league debut with the Giants. He put up similar numbers in Triple-A in 2015 prior to the trade.
