San Francisco Giants: Top prospect update after one month
High-A San Jose (10-17)
1. C Joey Bart—10 G, .270/.341/.541, 5 XBH (2 HR), 8 RBI, 7 R—INJURED
2. OF Heliot Ramos—19 G, .270/.422/.587, 10 XBH (5 HR), 11 RBI, 12 R—INJURED
24. SP Camilo Doval—10 G, 5.54 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, 19 K, 13.0 IP

Losing both Joey Bart (broken hand) and Heliot Ramos (knee sprain) for at least a month each is a tough blow for the Giants, especially considering both players were off to hot starts.
In fact, Ramos was looking like one of the most improved prospects in baseball, showing off his plus raw power while raising his walk rate from 6.5 to 16.9 percent.
Those two have been head and shoulder above the rest of the High-A roster offensively.
On the mound, relievers Frank Rubio and Raffi Vizcaino are both off to phenomenal starts.
A 29th-round pick in 2017 out of the University of Florida, Rubio has posted a 0.55 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and a 22-to-4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 16.1 innings out of the San Jose bullpen.
Meanwhile, Vizcaino has a 1.88 ERA and 28 strikeouts in 14.1 innings. He worked as a starter at High-A last season and has seen his stuff play up while making the transition to the bullpen.
