Here is an update on San Francisco Giants prospects in the Arizona Fall League after three weeks of action has concluded.

A couple of San Francisco Giants prospects continue to excel in the Arizona Fall League, while others are still looking to make their mark.

Aramis Garcia continues to have a good fall as he belted his first home run this past week. He’s now hitting .296 in 6 games and 27 at-bats with 5 RBI. There has also been good reports of his defense as a catcher.

While we all know Buster Posey is the current and future catcher for the Giants, Garcia could be very good insurance down the road.

Relief pitcher D.J. Snelten continues his good work in the AFL. He’s now pitched 7 scoreless innings over 4 games pitched. Snelten has allowed just 3 hits and 3 walks, while striking out seven batters. He also has 2 holds and is becoming a very reliable pitcher for the Scottsdale Scorpions.

Snelten is hoping to compete for a spot in the San Francisco Giants bullpen next spring, and that possibility is looking pretty good right now.

While Steven Duggar’s average is just .220, he’s still finding ways to be productive. He leads the team with 10 runs scored and is tied for the team lead with 3 stolen bases.

Duggar has a .340 on-base-percentage in 41 at-bats, and he’s second on the team with 8 walks.

Tyler Beede made is debut at the Arizona Fall League and things did not go well. He gave up 5 earned runs on 4 hits and 3 walks with just 1 strikeout over 2 innings pitched.

I know he’s still recovering, but you would have hoped for a little better performance. Hopefully he’ll get some more innings under is belt this fall and be ready for spring training.

Tyler Cyr had a scoreless outing this past week bringing his ERA down to 6.75. He’s now given up 3 runs in 4 innings pitched on 4 hits and 2 walks with just 1 strikeout.

We also got some bad news this past week as we found our Chris Shaw is out with a shoulder injury. It’s not expected to be anything significant, but I doubt we see him again this fall.
