San Jose Giants (High A)
Manager: Lipso Nava
Catchers: Jeff Arnold, Matt Winn,
Top 30 Prospects: Fabian (6), Quinn (12), Adon (19)
The Low-Down: There aren’t as high profile prospects in San Jose as some would like. But that doesn’t mean they’re hurting for talent. Adon is the major pitching prospect they have down there this year. You also have two, very good outfielders in Quinn and Fabian. If you’re heading down to Municipal Stadium in San Jose this season, those are your guys to keep an eye on.
As for someone who isn’t on the top-30 list that you should pay attention to? Look no further than Bryce Johnson. Johnson is a sixth round draft pick out of Sam Houston State, and he was impressive both at the plate and in the outfield in Short Season ball with Salem-Kizer. He’s not a power hitter, but he got on base frequently with his .400 OBP and .329 batting average. He also stole 25 bases. In the outfield, he never made an error in 400+ innings, and even had eight outfield assists. He’s a speed/contact guy, so look for his average and defense to shine through.
