BNS - San Francisco Giants: Top 10 Prospects For 2013


A supplemental first rounder (49th overall) out of high school in 2011, 20-year-old right-hander Kyle Crick is 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, and he has frontline starter potential. Given a test when he was assigned to the South Atlantic League at 19 last season, Crick held hitters to a .193 average and posted a 2.53 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP in 23 games (including 22 starts). He fanned 128 in 111.1 innings.

Drafted in the 16th round out of high school in 2011, 20-year-old right-hander Clayton Blackburn has rapidly climbed the Giants prospect rankings. Like Crick, he was dominant in the South Atlantic League last season, logging a 2.54 ERA, a 1.02 WHIP and a .232 batting average against while striking out 143 in 131.1 innings.

Converted from a reliever into a starter at Mississippi State University, 22-year-old right-hander Chris Stratton was the 20th overall pick in last summer’s draft. He features a fast ball, a slider, a curve and a change-up – the first two which are plus and the latter two which are average. As a college pitcher, he has the potential to climb the Giants organization swiftly.
