Franco really only fits for the Giants in a world where they also trade Evan Longoria at the deadline, which given his contract and current status on the injured list is very unlikely. Still, with a few years of team control left, good contact skills and plus power, Franco is an appealing player.
Pivetta and Velasquez have always racked up strikeouts and have shown middle-of-the-rotation flashes, though both lack consistency. The stuff is there, and they would be interesting projects for the Giants who have the MLB experience to immediately occupy a rotation spot.
Garcia is a standard middle relief prospect who has really struggled in 25 MLB innings this year. He pairs a mid-90s fastball with an above-average slider and is still only 22 years old, so there’s some upside. He’ll need to develop better command to take the next step.
Grullon is considered a defense-first backup catcher with raw power, but his lack of bat speed could be an issue at the next level. That said, he’s 23 and he’s slugged over .500 at Triple-A the past two seasons.
Irvin is a pitchability lefty in the mold of Ty Blach or Andrew Suarez. His changeup is his only potentially above-average pitch, but he’s comfortable using his entire four-pitch mix. Dohy is a wild southpaw who has the potential to develop three above-average pitches, but his violent delivery limits him to the bullpen.
Leftwich seemed like a close-to-ready middle reliever to enter the year, but he’s been unable to adjust to Triple-A thus far. Viza is a 24-year old starter striking out nearly a batter an inning at Triple-A, but he also has an ERA in the mid-6s.
