Kyle Crick’s the top prospect in the Giants organization according to everybody I read. MLB.com agrees. What we haven’t had recently is a re-ranking of the prospects mid-season within the San Francisco Giants system itself. That’s exciting because prospect lists are obvious site hit generators and I love to see the opinions of scouts on kids I never get the chance to watch. You can click through everything here, or you can see the Top 20 from the Giants ranked by Jonathan Mayo and his staff below:

  1. RHP Kyle Crick (#47 overall)
  2. RHP Chris Stratton (2012 1st round pick, #3 on team pre-season)
  3. IF Joe Panik (2011 1st round pick, #4 pre-season)
  4. RHP Heath Hembree (#5 pre-season)
  5. RHP Clayton Blackburn (#13 pre-season)
  6. LHP Michael Kickham (#11 pre-season, I think he’d be a decent reliever)
  7. RHP Martin Agosta (same ranking, doing great in Low-A Augusta)
  8. IF Christian Arroyo (2013 1st round pick, in AZ League)
  9. OF Gary Brown (#2 pre-season, constant target of questions for GM Brian Sabean)
  10. OF Francisco Peguero (#6 pre-season)
  11. LHP Edwin Escobar (#10 pre-season, earned/received promotion to Double-A Richmond)
  12. LHP Ty Blach (#20 pre-season, 95/11 K/BB in High-A San Jose)
  13. LHP Eric Surkamp (#9 pre-season)
  14. OF Gustavo Cabrera (#15 pre-season, 17 years old)
  15. C Andrew Susac (#17 pre-season)
  16. OF Brian Ragira (2013 4th round pick, Short-Season ball in Salem-Kaiser)
  17. IF Ryder Jones (2nd round pick, in AZ League)
  18. RHP Joan Gregorio (#16 pre-season, has been receiving more press recently due to good performance in Low-A Augusta)
  19. LHP Adalberto Mejia (same ranking, just spot-started in Fresno and the box score says he did OK)
  20. LHP Josh Osich (earned/received promotion to Double-A Richmond)

That would put the tally of “Top 20″ prospects in the Giants system at Dominican Summer League — 1, Arizona League — 2, Short-Season A-ball — 1, Low-A — 3, High-A — 4, Double-A — 4, Triple-A — 5. The positional distribution goes like this: C — 1, IF — 3, OF — 4, RHP — 6, LHP — 6. Going into Friday’s games the Giants are tied for the eighth-worst record in the Majors with the Toronto Blue Jays.
