Top 10 Prospect Round Up (June)

I am going to start a new addition to SF Giants Guy wherein I will quickly post the numbers of our top 10 prospects at the beginning of every month. It is based on the Top 20 Prospects found on the San Francisco Giants website (link here).

Here is the June roundup:

Kyle Crick (0-1, 0.93 ERA, 1.97 WHIP in Single A)

Notes: Crick was just recently activated from the DL.  He has only thrown 9.2 innings thus far in 2013. 

Gary Brown (.213 AVG, .278 OBP, .608 OPS in AAA)

Notes: No way around it, Brown has been a disappointment this year. Some Giants fans were hoping that Brown would be a midseason call up this year. Not going to be the case with these numbers. 

Chris Stratton (6-3, 3.77 ERA, 1.22 WHIP in Single A)

Notes: Nothing flashy here about Stratton. He's doing well but not really opening eyes. At least not based on the stat lines. 

Joe Panik (.290 AVG, .378 OBP, .765 OPS in AA)

Notes: Panik was an underrated pick when the Giants drafted him. He's doing nothing to disprove he's the heir apparent at second base once Scutaro's contract ends. 

Heath Hembree (13 saves, 3.86 ERA, 1.20 WHIP in AAA)

Notes: Closer of the future? Main set up man for Romo in 2013? Bochy has alluded that Hembree's time is right around the corner. 

Francisco Peguero (.328 AVG, .363 OBP, .800 OPS in AAA)

Notes: Torres has actually hit well against lefties and Blanco has done okay against righties. However, neither really offer long term value. If Blanco or Torres or both hit the skids, we'll likely see Peguero get an extended look. I still like him better as a bench option right now than Brett Pill. 

Martin Agosta (5-2, 2.47 ERA, 1.13 WHIP in Single A)

Notes: This kid has 71 K's in 54.2 IP. Wonder why we haven't heard more about him? Right now he's looking to be our 2nd best pitcher in the system behind Crick. 

Chris Heston (5-4. 5.97 ERA, 1.72 WHIP in AAA)

Notes: Heston had a great season last year in AA. His average stuff is not translating well in Fresno this season. 

Eric Surkamp (60 Day DL, has not pitched in 2013)

Notes: Would not be surprised to see Surkamp activated in July and "showcased" for a potential trade. Of course, with the futures of Vogelsong, Lincecum, and Zito up in the air, the Giants might want to hold on to their most MLB ready starter. 

Edwin Escobar (0-2, 3.35 ERA, 1.14 WHIP in Single A)

Notes: This lefty is putting up solid numbers through the first two months of the season. His stock should continue to rise.
