The Giants Outfield by Run Value

This is just a quick snapshot of the run values for the Giants outfielders from last season.

It's easy to see the rather large drop off from Andres Torres to the rest of the outfield. Wow. That makes his unlikely breakout even more impressive.

The other thing that you can see from this is that Aaron Rowand and Nate Schierholtz were incredibly close in value last year, with Nate getting the edge on his defense.

That leaves the Giants weighing if Rowand's bat will bounce back and if not, will Schierholtz hit enough to not take away all of his value on defense. Tough questions to answer now that Cody Ross is on the shelf.
