Duggar was recalled by the Giants and is starting Wednesday against the Rockies.
Duggar will return to the active roster to serve as outfield depth after Luis Alexander Basabe (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Duggar made 29 plate appearances earlier in the season, hitting .107 with three runs and two RBI.
Duggar was optioned to the Giants' alternate training site Saturday.
Duggar hasn't played much this season, receiving just 29 plate appearances, and it's not hard to see why, as he's hitting just .107/.138/.179. He'll make way on the roster for Austin Slater (groin), who returned from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Duggar was recalled from the Giants' alternate training site and is starting in center field and batting ninth Saturday night against the Diamondbacks, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Duggar was recalled Saturday when Austin Slater (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Duggar has appeared in eight games for the Giants while managing just two hits in 19 at-bats. He'll figure to remain a part of the 28-man roster until Slater can return, and he'll split duties in center field with Mauricio Dubon until Slater returns.
Duggar was optioned to San Francisco's alternate camp site Wednesday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Duggar spent just two days with the big club and went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in his lone start. Andrew Suarez was added to the big-league roster in a corresponding move.
Duggar was recalled by the Giants on Monday.
Duggar saw fairly regular time in the starting lineup while he was on the active roster earlier in the season but hit just .133/.188/.200 with two RBI and seven strikeouts over 15 at-bats. It's unclear whether he'll reclaim significant playing time going forward. He isn't in the starting lineup Monday against the Angels, but he could be available off the bench.
Duggar was optioned to the Giants' alternate training site Thursday.
He saw regular playing time over the last five days, going 1-for-10 with a double, two RBI and four strikeouts. Duggar will remain on the taxi squad for the final seven games of this road trip. It's unclear who will be the primary left fielder going forward, but perhaps Hunter Pence moves to the outfield while Darin Ruf handles DH duties, or we could see Mauricio Dubon play center field, shifting Mike Yaztrzemski to a corner.
Duggar is out of the lineup Sunday versus the Rangers, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Duggar is 1-for-7 in three games since being called up by the Giants on Thursday, and he'll take a seat with southpaw Kolby Allard pitching for the Rangers. Austin Slater receives the start in right field and will bat leadoff.
Duggar was recalled by the Giants on Thursday.
Duggar was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento in March, but he'll return to the active roster Thursday after Jaylin Davis and Joe McCarthy were optioned in corresponding moves. Their removal from the 30-man roster will certainly open up some playing time in the outfield, but it's unclear whether Duggar will carve out a consistent role similar to the one he had in 2019 when he was healthy. The 26-year-old hit .234/.278/.341 with four home runs and 28 RBI with 78 strikeouts over 73 games with the Giants last year.
Duggar was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Duggar served as the Giants' primary center fielder in 2019 while battling several injuries, but it appears as though he'll begin the 2020 campaign in the minors after hitting .190/.292/.286 with one extra-base hit and nine strikeouts over 24 plate appearances. Duggar's demotion to the Triple-A level could signal that Jaylin Davis is in line for a spot on the major-league roster once the season gets underway after having a slightly more effective spring by recording a .819 OPS with one home run and four RBI over 30 plate appearances. However, both options offer limited fantasy value outside of deeper leagues.
Duggar altered his stance in the offseason, reverting to a stance he hadn't used since high school in an attempt to get his bat going at the big-league level, Mark W. Sanchez of 104.5 KNBR reports.
Duggar opened last season as the Giants' starting center fielder but didn't do much with the job before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in August. He's now played 114 games in the big leagues and owns a poor .241/.286/.358 slash line with just six homers. He doesn't have much to offer fantasy owners outside of particularly deep leagues, where his playing time should at least make him relevant. He lines up as the primary center fielder again this season, though Jaylin Davis could steal at-bats.
Duggar (shoulder) won't need surgery and is expected to rehab for the next 4-to-6 weeks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Duggar has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season, but this is good news for the Giants. He's expected to be healthy for the start of spring training.
Duggar (shoulder) was moved to the 60-day injured list Friday, effectively ending his season, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Duggar was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a left shoulder strain, though the Giants have since elected to shut him down for the season by moving him to the 60-day IL. He's slated to seek a second opinion, though surgery is a possibility at this point, per Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle. If he elects to go under the knife, he's looking at a three-month recovery. Duggar finishes with a .234 average along with four homers and 28 RBI over 73 games in 2019.
Duggar (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
This was expected after Duggar suffered a sprained left shoulder while making a diving catch Wednesday against the Nationals. He avoided damage to his surgically repaired labrum, per Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area, though he won't have a timetable for his return until he's reevaluated by team doctors Thursday. The expectation is that Duggar will be sidelined for at least a couple of weeks. Joey Rickard was summoned from Triple-A Sacramento to take his place on the roster in the meantime.
Duggar was diagnosed with a sprained left shoulder and will likely require a trip to the injured list, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
Duggar suffered the injury making a diving catch during Wednesday's 4-1 loss to the Nationals. He's slated to undergo an MRI, after which the severity of the injury, along with a timetable for his return, should emerge. Either way, it sounds like the Giants are planning on bringing up another outfielder to replace Duggar on the roster.
Duggar was removed from Wednesday's game against the Nationals with an apparent shoulder injury, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Duggar made a diving catch in the fourth inning that saved a couple of runs, but he appeared to injure his shoulder in the process. The outfielder was subsequently replaced by Austin Slater in right field prior to the start of the next inning. It's worth noting that Duggar underwent surgery on the same shoulder last September.
Duggar started in center field and went 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored in Friday's 5-4 loss to Colorado.
Duggar was immediately inserted into the starting lineup following his promotion to the majors Friday. The 25-year-old appeared to have regained his stroke in the minors (.337/.461/.542 in 23 games) following his early season struggles. Kevin Pillar has been manning center on a regular basis since taking the job from Duggar earlier this year, so it's too early to say that the latter has all of a sudden regained a regular role, especially with Alex Dickerson (oblique) expected to return in a little over a week.
Duggar was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.
Dugger spent most of the early part of the season in San Francisco, posting a disappointing .234/.277/.343 slash line in 67 games. He appears to have sorted things out in 23 games with Sacramento, hitting .337/.461/.542. It's unclear if he'll slide right into a starting role or if he'll be stuck with a bench spot. Tyler Austin was designated for assignment in a corresponding move, removing one competitor for starts.
Duggar (back) was reinstated from the injured list and optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
Duggar hit safely in all three of his rehab games with Sacramento, but apparently the Giants are content with their current outfield options, so Duggar will have to bide his time for a while yet. The 25-year-old has struck out at a 28.8 percent clip and has been below-replacement level overall in his 67 games with the big club this season, so this move is justified.
Duggar (back) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Duggar took dry swings Monday, his first action since hitting the injured list on June 21. With his back still feeling well, he'll begin a rehab assignment in short order. Though that's positive, his time rehabbing in the minor leagues means he will spend more than the minimum 10 days on the injured list, as he first becomes eligible for activation June 29.
Duggar (back) took 20 dry swings Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Duggar was pleased with how his back felt in what was his first time swinging since landing on the injured list last week. The outfielder is hoping to return after a minimum stay on the shelf, though he's taking things day-by-day.
