San Francisco Giants Arizona Fall League Update: Week 2
We’ll give you an update of all the San Francisco Giants prospects in the Arizona Fall League after two weeks of action has concluded.
It has not been a stellar start to the Arizona Fall League for most San Francisco Giants prospects. We’ll start with the best and work our way down.
D.J. Snelten continues to impress out of the bullpen. He’s now tossed 5 scoreless innings this fall, while giving up just 2 hits and 1 walk. He’s also struck out four batters in his 3 appearances.
The best hitter for the Giants this fall has been catcher Aramis Garcia. In four games and 18 at-bats he’s hitting .333 (6-18) with 1 run scored, 3 RBI and 5 strikeouts. However, he’s yet to get an extra base hit.
While Steven Duggar is only hitting .241 (7-29) in 8 games, he has an on-base-percentage of .343 and has scored 7 runs. He’s also driven in two runs, walked five times, struck out six times and stolen three bases in four attempts.
The Giants number two overall prospect according to MLB.com, Chris Shaw, has just three hits in 19 at-bats. He’s also walked three times, scored a run and struck out twice. It would certainly be nice to see Shaw get going soon.

Both Duggar and Shaw will be competing for a spot in the outfield this spring. Right now Duggar definitely has the leg up.
And lastly, Tyler Cyr has given up 3 runs in 3 innings pitched on 3 hits and 2 walks with 1 strikeout.
Tyler Beede still hasn’t made an appearance, which tells me he’s still recovering. I can’t find any news on him, but hopefully he will pitch soon.
As for the team, the Scottsdale Scorpions are 5-6 on the season, which only puts them a game out of first place. They have eight games left in October with all but one of them being a day game.
