It’s still very early in the Cactus League, but there is some good signs that this year might not be as much of an offensive struggle as it was in 2011. For starters Buster Posey and Freddy Sanchez should be back and healthy. Lets take a look at some players that are off to a hot start in Arizona.
Let’s start with Melky Cabrera. Cabrera is hitting .455 with 2 homers in his first 3 games this spring. I know it’s just spring training games, but I would rather see a player with good numbers like this than hitting under .200.
Brandon Crawford is known for his glove, and the Giants aren’t expecting much from his bat in 2012. Crawford has been putting in the work and is off to a great start so far. He’s hitting .571 with 3 RBI in his first 3 cactus games.
Aubrey Huff knows first base is his position to lose, and he doesn’t seem ready to let anyone else take over at this time. Huff’s bat seems to be clicking on all cylinders this week. He’s hitting .429 with a 1 homer and 4 RBI.
Brett Pill is making sure everyone knows he’s at camp this year. Pill is fighting for a roster spot, and has been seeing some action all of the field to mold him into a utility player. Pill is hitting .462 with a homer and 4 RBI.
All of these stats are prior to today’s game. This is just stats for a few players after just a couple of Cactus League games. It’s nice to see who’s starting off hot!
What’s your thoughts on the Giants bats in the first week of Cactus League games?
