SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: Triple-A
Matt Frisbee: 1 G, 1 GS, 4.2 IP, 7 H, 5 R (3 ER), 1 BB, 1 K, 5.79 ERA
Kervin Castro: 2 G, 2.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 3 K, 0.00 ERA
Camilo Doval: 1 G, 1.2 IP, 3 H, 1 R (1 ER), 1 BB, 3 K, 1 HBP, 5.40 ERA
Matt Frisbee was once again hit hard in his start this week against Salt Lake. He only allowed three earned runs but could have been four if not for this spectacular home run robbery by Jaylin Davis.
Frisbee has not been as sharp in Sacramento as he was with Richmond, posting a 7.36 ERA for the River Cats. His strikeouts have gone down drastically with only an 11.4% K rate across three starts at Triple-A. The strikeouts should come back as he never had a strikeout rate below 25% in his pro career before getting called up to Sacramento.
Kervin Castro has settled in this month, with a solid 3.00 ERA in six innings with seven strikeouts and four walks. His stuff looked crisper and was throwing strikes. Both Gregory Santos and Camilo Doval have pitched better as well this week. Both continue to look to get their feet under them. This week looked like a step in the right direction. Stin, none have gone as far to make a push for an opportunity to work in high-leverage situations for the Giants quite yet.
