The move comes on the heels of the Giants acquiring Andrew McCutchen in a trade with the Pirates. The biggest question of the San Francisco Giants' offseason has been what they'd do about their outfield. While Maybin hits right-handed, his impact wasn't almost as substantial with the Astros past year as Jackson's was with the Indians. If Jackson struggles, that.352 average against left-handers will be key, because the Giants can promote Duggar to platoon with Jackson once he's ready.
