SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: Low-A

Notable Performers

Marco Luciano: 6 G, 18 AB, .278 AVG, 1.480 OPS, 1 2B, 4 HR, 7 RBI, 5 BB, 8 K
Jairo Pomares: 5 G, 18 AB, .333 AVG, 1.095 OPS, 3 2B, 1 HR, 2 RBI, 3 BB, 6 K
Carter Williams: 3 G, 14 AB, .286 AVG, 1.048 OPS, 2 HR, 4 RBI, 1 BB, 2 K

The organization’s top prospect Marco Luciano accepted his 2021 Futures Game selection with a big week. With four dingers this week, he’s brought his season total to 13 which not only leads the Giants farm system but also the most in the Low-A level. He’s also got better as the season heats up with a .287/.398/.628 June. It’s safe to say that he is indeed one of the very best prospects in all of baseball.

Jairo Pomares continued his hot, power-hitting ways and has a nine-game hitting streak. With seven doubles and four home runs in 14 games this season, his .661 SLG is second in the entire Low-A level behind only Cardinals top prospect Jordan Walker among players with at least 13 games. The 20-year old has one of the best combinations of power and hitting ability in the entire farm system.

With several promotions from San Jose, Carter Williams got promoted to the team from Extended Spring Training a couple of weeks ago. In eight games so far this season, Williams is batting .306 with a .944 OPS and an eight-to-two strikeout to walk ratio. The 23-year old outfielder has good power and speed in his game and should put up strong numbers for the San Jose squad moving forward.

After leading the charge for most of June, the trio of Alexander CanarioCasey Schmitt, and Luis Toribio combined to hit .130 (7-54) this week with just one home run and a 16-to-two strikeout to walk ratio. The duo of Canario and Toribio in particular have strikeout rates higher than 25% this season. I expect the trio to be better offensively moving forward.
