With the call up of Casey Schmitt, the development of J.D. Davis's glove at third, Thairo Estrada's range, Brett Wisely's support at second, with all of that rooted in Brandon Crawford's foundational play, the Giants infield has become one of the better defenses in the league with 9 outs above average -good for fourth in the Majors and fifth when taking into account the work of the outfield.
