The San Francisco Giants had a horrendous April. They seem to be getting back on track in May now that the injured players are coming back. Unfortunately, whatever curse was put in the Giants, also seemed to be cast on the farm system as well.
When it comes to the minor leagues, player development comes before result of games. So far, it hasn’t been a pretty season for the Giants’ minor league system. Through May 20th, the four minor league teams combined have played 162 games for the season.
The combined record of the four teams is a disappointing 62-100. This seems a bit worrisome considering all four teams have played about 40 games and none are anywhere to the .500 mark. The closest are the Richmond Flying Squirrels with a 17-23 record.
Overall the teams are having problems winning games but throughout the organization there are bright spots. There was a hat-trick for home runs and a perfect game was thrown. Some guys have picked it up as of late and are having a pretty good season. Now i don’t want you to read that first paragraph and think if the San Francisco Giants need help later on in the season it wont be coming from the farm system. Christian Arroyo was just the beginning.
