Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 55 | Power: 40 | Run: 65 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60 | Overall: 50

Duggar confounded scouts while at Clemson, showing some of the best all-around tools in college baseball but posting just so-so numbers. As a result, he slid to the sixth round of the 2015 Draft, and the Giants have done a nice job of helping unlock his potential in pro ball. He has performed consistently well, reaching the big leagues this July despite losing much of the 2017 season to forearm and hamstring injuries.

The biggest change San Francisco made with Duggar was adjusting the angle of his barrel so it didn't point as much toward the ground, giving him a more level and longer left-handed swing and helping him get a better look at pitches. He now makes a higher quality of contact and hasn't sacrificed his control of the strike zone. While he hit just eight home runs in three college seasons and won't ever be a slugger, he's driving the ball more often and should produce double-digit homers on an annual basis.

Duggar can post plus-plus running times but his speed doesn't play that well on the bases. He succeeded on just 62 percent of his steal attempts in his first three pro seasons and needs to be more aggressive. Clemson used him mainly in right field, in part because of his strong arm, but he has taken well to center field as a pro and is the Giants' best long-term option there.
