Over the last couple of days, we at Around the Foghorn have compiled a list of San Francisco Giants prospects to look out for during the 2017 season. So far we have covered players at the High-A and Double-A level — now it is time to find out who to keep an eye on in Triple-A Sacramento.

The Sacramento River Cats have been a member of the Pacific Coast League since 1978, and have been an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants since the 2015 season.

Hopefully I am not the only one, but it has taken me some time to get used to recognizing the River Cats as an affiliate of the Giants after growing up rooting for the Fresno Grizzlies for as long as I can remember.

The minor leagues are an exciting brand of baseball to watch. Full of unique team names, immensely creative promotional events, and the future stars of America’s pastime — the minors have it all.

The Pacific Coast League, a league known for its offensive prowess, has produced a vast amount of talent over the years, and the San Francisco Giants have their fair share of talented players on the cusp of the big leagues, who will compete in Triple-A Sacramento in 2017.
