Rangers' Steven Duggar: Swipes first bag as Ranger
Duggar started in left field and went 1-for-3 with two walks and a stolen base in Monday's 7-6 extra-inning loss to the Orioles.
Duggar stole his first base in two tries since the Rangers acquired him from the Giants. He's part of a three-player rotation in left field, along with Brad Miller and Kole Calhoun, while occasionally spotting in at center field when Leody Taveras isn't starting. Duggar has made four appearances (three starts) since being acquired two weeks ago.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Steven Duggar: Makes first start as Ranger
Duggar started in center field and went 2-for-4 with a run scored and was caught stealing in Tuesday's 8-3 win over Kansas City.
Duggar, who was acquired from the Giants last week, made his first start in a Texas uniform. He eventually shifted to left field when Brad Miller moved to third base to cover for the injured Josh H. Smith (calf). The lefty hitter could share center field with Leody Taveras, a switch hitter that's batting .194 against righties, or fill in for Miller on an as-needed basis.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Steven Duggar: Activated from IL after trade
The Rangers activated Duggar (oblique) from the 60-day injured list Thursday after acquiring him from the Giants in exchange for outfielder Willie Calhoun and cash considerations.
To clear room for Duggar on the 40-man roster, Texas designated reliever Spencer Patton for assignment. Prior to the trade, the 28-year-old outfielder hadn't played for the Giants since April 21 after being shut down with a left oblique strain, but he's back to full health again after turning in a .550 OPS over his 14-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento. Duggar may have to initially settle for a reserve role in the Texas outfield, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Rangers gave him a look as their primary option in center field at some point....

Rangers' Steven Duggar: Traded to Texas
The Rangers acquired Duggar (oblique) from the Giants on Thursday in exchange for Willie Calhoun and cash considerations, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Duggar played in just 12 games this year before hitting the 60-day injured list with a left oblique strain. He'd spent the maximum amount of time on his rehab assignment, struggling to a .550 OPS in 14 games, so the Giants had to make a decision on his future. That decision turned out to be a trade rather than a return to the active roster, though he'll presumably join the Rangers' big-league squad shortly. Duggar gives his new team a good glove in center field but hasn't done much at the plate across parts of five seasons in the majors, hitting a modest .242/.297/.377. That may leave him stuck as the fourth outfielder in Texas, though beating out Leody Taveras for at-bats may not be particularly difficult.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Nearing rehab assignment
Duggar (oblique) is expected to begin a rehab assignment June 2, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Duggar landed on the 60-day injured list with a left oblique strain in late April, and his recovery process was slowed when he tested positive for COVID-19 a week after he was placed on the IL. The 28-year-old isn't eligible to be activated until late June, so he'll presumably appear in minor-league games for several weeks prior to rejoining the Giants.... See More ... See Less

Giants' Steven Duggar: Heading to 60-day IL
Duggar was placed on the 60-day injured list Friday with a left oblique strain, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
The 28-year-old suffered the oblique strain during Thursday's game against the Mets and will now be sidelined for at least the next two months. Austin Slater and Mauricio Dubon should see increased reps in center field during Duggar's absence, and Heliot Ramos or Luke Williams could be promoted to provide depth.... See More ... See Less

Giants' Steven Duggar: Requires IL stint
Manager Gabe Kapler said Thursday that Duggar (oblique) will be placed on the 10-day injured list, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Duggar was removed from Thursday's game against the Mets with a left oblique injury that he sustained on a swing, and he'll require at least a week and a half to recover. Austin Slater and Mauricio Dubon should see additional playing time in center field while Duggar is sidelined, and Heliot Ramos and Luke Williams are candidates to join the major-league roster as outfield depth....

Duggar suffered his injury following a swing in Thursday's matchup, and it's not yet clear whether he'll require a stint on the injured list. If he's slated to miss additional time, Austin Slater and Mauricio Dubon should see the bulk of the playing time in center field.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Keeps running Tuesday
Duggar went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets.
He went 0-for-3 in the nightcap, ending his streak of games with a steal at three. Duggar is only hitting .194 with a .235 OBP through 10 games, but he's taking full advantage of his opportunities when he does get on base, swiping four bases in four attempts.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Steals in consecutive games
Duggar went 1-for-4 with an RBI and a stolen base in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Guardians.
Duggar knocked in Thairo Estrada in the sixth inning and then stole second. This was Duggar's second steal in as many games and his third theft in eight games this season. The outfielder has added four RBI, one run scored and three doubles, but he's slashing just .208/.259/.333 in 27 plate appearances while striking out 11 times.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Records second steal
Duggar went 1-for-3 with a double, a walk, a stolen base and a run scored in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Guardians.
Duggar was the only Giant to post an extra-base hit in Saturday's contest. He's been a regular presence in the eighth spot in the order versus right-handed pitchers, but he's yet to start against a southpaw. The outfielder has a .200/.261/.350 slash line with three doubles, three RBI, two stolen bases and a run scored in 23 plate appearances.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Swipes first bag
Duggar went 1-for-3 with two RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's 13-2 win over San Diego.
Duggar did his damage early with a sacrifice fly in the first inning and he singled home a run before stealing second in the second. The outfielder has appeared overmatched early with a .154 average and eight strikeouts in 13 at-bats, though he can chip in a stolen base every so often. He's started in four of the Giants' first five games, but Duggar could see his opportunities take a hit whenever LaMonte Wade (knee) is ready to return from the injured list.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Sitting against lefty
Duggar is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Padres, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
LaMonte Wade's (knee) placement on the injured list to begin the season has allowed Duggar to handle a near-everyday role through the Giants' first five games, but the latter will sit for the series finale in San Diego. Along with Duggar, fellow lefty-hitting regulars Mike Yastrzemski, Joc Pederson, Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford (wrist) are sitting out Wednesday, as the Giants lean on a righty-heavy lineup to counter Padres southpaw Sean Manaea....

Giants' Steven Duggar: On bench Sunday
Duggar is out of the lineup for Sunday's game versus Miami, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Duggar started the first two games of the season against right-handed pitching but will take a seat Sunday with lefty Trevor Rogers pitching for the Marlins. Mauricio Dubon will start in center field in the series finale.... See More ... See Less
Giants' Steven Duggar: Potential depth outfielder
Duggar is making a case to begin the year on the Giants' Opening Day roster, Alex Simon of the Mercury News reports.
Manager Gabe Kapler likes Duggar for his defense and his speed, per Simon. The 28-year-old outfielder hasn't done much at the plate this spring -- he's 2-for-15 with a home run, two walks, two RBI and three runs scored in six games. With LaMonte Wade (knee) set to miss the start of the season, Duggar is increasingly likely to make the Opening Day roster as a depth outfielder capable of playing all three positions. He'll also be a candidate as a pinch runner, though it's unlikely he works into a starting role without more offensive production.... See More ... See Less
