Low-A hitting: Marco Luciano

Mid-season hitting MVP: SS Marco Luciano

He was already the best prospect in the organization for good reason. After a relatively quiet start, Marco Luciano is showing why he might soon be the best prospect in MLB. Luciano leads the San Jose Giants in games played, home runs, RBI, runs scored, and walks among all qualified hitters. He is also inside the league’s top 10 in nearly every major and peripheral offensive category. In fact, he leads the entire Low-A level with 15 big flites. The 19-year old is living up to the massive expectations set upon him, posting an impressive .276/.376/.547 triple-slash.

Low-A pitching: RHP Wil Jensen

In a rotation loaded with well-regarded prospects, the undrafted Wil Jensen out of Pepperdine has been the most consistent pitcher on San Jose’s staff through the first half of the season. The 23-year old leads the rotation in ERA, walks allowed, strikeout-to-walk ratio, runs allowed, and SwStr%. He is second in innings pitched, hits allowed, and FIP. Even though most of his colleagues in the little Giants rotation has better stuff than Jensen, the right-hander flashes a solid, four-pitch mix that he consistently throws for strikes headlined by an above-average changeup. He deserves a promotion to Eugene by the season’s end.
