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

We’re halfway through the AFL and some Giant’s prospects are starting to heat up. We also had the AFL Falls Stars Game this past weekend, which will get into later.

Steven Duggar had a big week as he raised his average to .269 with 14 hits in 52 at-bats, including 3 doubles. He’s also scored a team-high 13 runs and stolen a team-high 8 bases.

The outfielder has walked 9 times and struck out 13 times with an on-base-percentage of .381. He continues to impress this fall as he looks to push for playing time in the Giants outfield next spring.

D.J. Snelten hasn’t gotten a ton of love this fall, but all he’s done is put up zeros. He’s now made 6 appearances out of the bullpen and pitched 10 scoreless innings. The left-handed pitcher has allowed just 4 hits and 5 walks with 9 strikeouts.

It’s certainly been an impressive fall for Snelten and hopefully it continues.

Tyler Beede had a much better second outing this fall. He lasted 4 innings and didn’t allow an earned run (2 unearned runs) on 2 hits and no walks with 4 strikeouts.

This was a very encouraging sign for Beede as we need to see him string together some good outings.

It was a big week for Aramis Garcia and Tyler Cyr as they each played in the Fall Stars game.

Garcia entered the game in the top of the sixth as a defensive replacement. He flied out to left in the bottom of the seventh in his only at-bat.

After the East took the lead in the bottom of the eighth, it was Cyr who was chosen to come out and save the game. He promptly set the West down in order with a strikeout along the way to earn the save.
