The 2020 Major League Baseball season was the San Francisco Giants' 138th year in MLB, their 63rd year in San Francisco since their move from New York following the 1957 season, and their 21st at Oracle Park. It is the first under the leadership of the team's new manager, Gabe Kapler, who replaced the recently retired Bruce Bochy, and new team general manager Scott Harris.

On March 12, 2020, MLB announced that because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the start of the regular season would be delayed by at least two weeks in addition to the remainder of spring training being cancelled.[1] Four days later, it was announced that the start of the season would be pushed back indefinitely due to the recommendation made by the CDC to restrict events of more than 50 people for eight weeks.[2] On June 23, commissioner Rob Manfred unilaterally implemented a 60-game season. Players reported to training camps on July 1 in order to resume spring training and prepare for a July 23 Opening Day.[3]
