Future Watch: Steven Duggar Rookie Baseball Cards, Giants – Steve Duggar was drafted by the San Francisco Giants in the sixth round of the 2015 MLB Amateur Draft. The 6-2, 195 pound outfielder has promise and could make the team this season.
His minor league stops have been all over the board. In three seasons he’s played in Rookie ball, Fall ball, A-, A+, AA, and AAA. In 2017, he played in three leagues. So he’s been busy and his totals so far are nine triples, 17 homers and 107 RBI with a .292 average and 31 steals. Add 52 doubles and 134 walks and you have very productive prospect.
This Spartanburg, SC native makes contact and rarely strikes out. In 900 at-bats he’s only struck out 223 times. His on-base percentage is a cumulative .384!
Collectors can get his 2017 Bowman Chrome autographed rookie card.
According to his MLB.com Draft Profile:
His left-handed swing can get busy and he has trouble handling breaking balls, so Duggar has some swing-and-miss issues that limit his ability to hit for a high average. He does have an eye for drawing walks and is more likely to be an on-base threat than a big power source. While he doesn’t have the pop of a typical right fielder, he does have the requisite strong arm for the position. ETA 2018.
He has been invited to the Giants Spring Training. He’s on the roster. Whether he plays center field or right, the Giants are expecting him to make the Opening Day roster at the age of 24.
Here’s a look at him making a tremendous play in the field:
