Augusta Green Jackets

Record: 7-11, 6th in the southern division

So far, the Green Jackets aren’t putting together wins. Now, wins don’t matter in player development. The Giants have three of their top 30 prospects according to MLB Pipeline, at this level. They are:

Beltre is currently the team leader (of those qualified) in OPS (.738) and Batting Average (.273) and RBI (11). Fabian isn’t too far behind him in the offensive category, hitting .246/.269/.344/.613.

Adon, on the other hand has been pretty good to start the season. In three starts he has a 3.09 ERA, and a 1.11 WHIP. He also has 14ks in 11.2 innings so far.

None of these things are astonishingly good. However, development is the most important thing here. As they might be getting off to a slower start, the Giants are going to have patience, especially in the young guys like Beltre, Fabian and Adon.

Other notable players at this level are Jacob Heyward, and Shawon Dunston Jr. Heyward has two home-runs, but isn’t hitting worth beans outside of that. Dunston Jr. just started playing with them the last few days, and has actually been doing pretty well.

Another pleasant surprise is Kevin Riveira, a second baseman whose numbers are pretty close to what Beltre is putting up.
