Extra attention will be paid to the San Francisco Giants farm system this year, as the organization already has one eye on the future. With that in mind, we’ll check in on some of the standout MiLB performers each week with our Wednesday top prospect update.

The San Francisco Giants front office have already shown that they see the MLB roster as a work in progress, with plenty of comings and goings in the first two weeks of the season.

Farhan Zaidi seems willing to give prospects and players with limited big league experience the chance to prove themselves worthy of a place on the 25-man roster.

While Bleacher Report’s 2019 farm system rankings have the Giants in the bottom five for overall prospect talent, there are still plenty of players in the minor league ranks who have a chance to be important long-term pieces.

With the focus increasingly on the future, and with a long season ahead, you would expect there to be opportunities for some of those prospects to show they are ready in 2019.

With that in mind, over the course of the season, we’ll be taking a regular look at some of the standout performers in the organization’s farm system, and highlighting some reasons for optimism.

With the minor league season not yet a week old, here are three prospects who have impressed so far.
