 Biographical Information
Adam Duvall homered in his first game as a major leaguer for the San Francisco Giants on June 26, 2014, hitting a solo shot off Mike Leake of the Cincinnati Reds for his team's lone run in a 3-1 loss. He had been called up a day earlier, just in time to witness Tim Lincecum throw a no-hitter against the San Diego Padres as he watched form the bench. He played 28 games for the Giants, hitting .192 with 3 homers and 5 RBIs while spending most of his time at first base. The Giants won the 2014 World Series, but he was not on the postseason roster.
He spent the first four months of 2015 in the minor leagues with the Sacramento RiverCats, where he hit .281 with 25 doubles and 26 homers and drove in 80 runs in 100 games. On July 31st, he was traded to the Cincinnati Reds along with P Keury Mella in return for the man against whom he had hit his first big league homer, Mike Leake. The problem was that he had nothing left to prove in AAA but was joining a team whose two best hitters, 1B Joey Votto and 3B Todd Frazier, played the same positions as he did. The Reds got creative by using him in left field during the last month of the season, and he responded by belting 2 doubles and 5 homers in 64 at-bats in the final weeks of the season.
