The San Francisco Giants manager is hoping his roster has “more guys on it” to fill the void left by the loss of Buster Posey and Matt Duffy.
Buck told reporters that he hopes the team has “some guys who have more time on the field.”
He did not elaborate on the “different group.”
He also did not specify who he was referring to, but he did not rule out adding veteran first baseman Justin Upton, a veteran outfielder Alex Guerrero and infielder Matt Duffy to the mix.
“We’re hoping to have some guys who maybe are a little more productive than the guys that are out there right now, or we may have some other guys that have the potential to be in that mix,” Buck said.
That’s the most important thing right now.” “
And we’re going to go out there and try to win.
That’s the most important thing right now.”
The Giants are in first place in the NL West and are two games back of the Dodgers for the last playoff spot in the National League West.
They are just three games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers for third place in that division, which means the Giants are looking to get in that last playoff slot.
“Hopefully we get that last spot in this division,” Buck added.
“That’s the goal.
We’ve got to get the fourth spot.” “
There are some guys that could be in the mix, but that’s just our goal.
We’ve got to get the fourth spot.”
Bryce Harper and David Ortiz have been out since late October with injuries.
The team’s other players that have played in more than 30 games are Ryan Vogelsong, Hunter Pence, Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford.
