SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: Triple-A
Kervin Castro: 2 G, 2.1 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K, 0.00 ERA, 43% CSW
Camilo Doval: 2 G, 1.1 IP, 0 H, 2 R (2 ER), 2 BB, 0 K, 13.50 ERA, 33% CSW
Ty Weber: 1 G, 4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K, 0.00 ERA, 30% CSW
Matt Frisbee: 2 G (2 GS), 10 IP, 13 H, 11 R (9 ER), 3 BB, 7 K, 8.10 ERA, 26% CSW
Leading off the Triple-A rundown is the trio of Gregory Santos, Kervin Castro, and Camilo Doval. Both Santos and Doval continued to struggle to throw strikes, but it was Doval who did not get away unscathed in his outing against the Reno Aces. Both Santos and Doval are trying to pick up their confidence back after disappointing big league stints. Castro, on the other hand, fared better last week. The trio could all receive big league call-ups soon, but it is clear that they all need more time in the minors.
Ty Weber made the unexpected jump from Low-A ball straight to Triple-A in the flurry of moves made a week ago. His numbers this season for San Jose have not been eye-popping, but he’s held more than his own in his Triple-A debut this week. Weber does not have the premium stuff of the three relievers mentioned above but he pitches with plenty of poise and is a good strike thrower.
After dominating the Double-A competition, Matt Frisbee has been a victim of the long ball in his two Triple-A starts, giving up four homers. He’s been very hittable but the good thing is that he’s pitched five completed innings in each of his starts. From the looks of things, Frisbee is still adjusting to the competition and should fare better as he finds his footing in the River Cats rotation.
