San Francisco Giants - Prospect Autograph Analysis From Every MLB Team

SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS - Prospect Autographs

San Francisco Giants Funny Baseball Card

The Giants know how to develop pitchers (just check out the confidence of Randy, pictured above), so you shouldn't be surprised that I want to write about 3 stud pitchers who will one day anchor a solid SF Giants starting rotation...

 

For starters (no pun intended), I'll briefly touch on the other Giants BC Autos.  I gave up on Gary Brown (2010 BDPP).  Brandon Belt is no longer a prospect (2011 BC).  Andrew Susac (2012 BC) is a catcher - don't invest in catchers.  So is Tommy Joseph (2012 BC), but he now plays for the Phillies.  And Joe Panik (2011 BDPP) is a second baseman with no pop who is 23 yrs old and is hitting .260.  OK, so now to the good stuff.

I may get a ton of criticism for this, but the following 3 guys can stack up with any other team's top 3 pitching prospects, as long as that team isn't my New York Mets.  I've mentioned 3 checkpoints when I evaluate pitchers (FIP, groundball rates, and K rates), so we can start there, but there is a whole lot more to talk about with these guys.

    1. Too hard to answer. Depends on when you ask me, whether it's Return % or $ on investment, length of investment horizon, etc.
