Baseball Players who Played for Giants and Marlins

There is a good chance that if you’ve found this page then you’re playing the Immaculate Grid.

That also means that today’s grid has asked for players that have played for both the San Francisco Giants and Miami Marlins (formerly Florida Marlins).

And, it also means that you’re probably stuck on this particular box and you’re looking for a little help. Sound about right so far?

Well, good news, you’re in the right place.

I’ve done some research and have found players who played for both the Giants and the Marlins.

Moises Alou

Moises Alou, who played from 1990 to 2008, is best known for his time as an outfielder with the Montreal Expos, Florida Marlins, and Chicago Cubs.

Over his 17-season career, Alou compiled over 2100 hits, 332 home runs, and a .303 career batting average. He was named an All-Star six times (Expos, Marlins, Astros, Cubs, Giants) and played a key role in the Florida Marlins’ 1997 World Series championship.

His best statistical season might have been in 2000 with the Houston Astros when he hit .355 with 30 home runs and 114 RBIs.

Benito Santiago

As a young catcher growing up, I remember seeing Benito Santiago throwing players out from his knees and thought it was the coolest thing ever and something I remember imitating in Little League games.

But, that’s not what matters here. What matters is that 5-time All-Star Benito Santiago played for 9 different teams throughout this 20-year career which makes him an absolute force on the Immaculate Grid.

Santiago played for Padres, Giants, Reds, (Florida) Marlins, Blue Jays, Royals, Pirates, Phillies and Cubs.

Dan Uggla

Dan Uggla, known for his power-hitting prowess as a second baseman, was a significant force in Major League Baseball from 2006 to 2015. Making his debut with the Florida Marlins, Uggla made an immediate impact, making the All-Star team in his rookie year.

Over his career, Uggla belted 235 home runs, and had his best years with the Marlins before moving to the Atlanta Braves where he won a Silver Slugger award in 2010.

Despite struggles with his batting average and strikeouts in the latter part of his career, Uggla is remembered for his impressive home run tally, especially for a middle infielder. He was a three-time All-Star and still holds the Marlins’ franchise record for career home runs by a second baseman.

Uggla Key Stats

  • All-Star (Marlins, Braves)
  • Silver Slugger (Marlins)
  • 100+ RBI Season (Marlins)

Adam Duvall

Adam Duvall was selected by the San Francisco Giants in the 11th round of the 2010 MLB Draft. He made his major league debut with the Giants in 2014 but was later traded to the Cincinnati Reds, where he became a regular starter.

Duvall’s 2016 season was a standout, as he hit 33 home runs and drove in 103 runs, earning his first All-Star selection. His power-hitting has continued to be a signature trait for Duvall, hitting 30 or more home runs in multiple seasons over his career.

After his time in Cincinnati, Duvall played for the Atlanta Braves, Miami Marlins and Boston Red Sox.

Duvall Key Stats
