Make sure to revisit our weekly SF Giants prospect rundowns to keep up with each of their minor-league affiliates. If you do not feel well acclimated to the prospects throughout the farm system, you might want to revisit our prospect week articles that detailed the system from the top prospects to lower-level fringes. If you’re just interested in the biggest names, then the preseason SF Giants top 31 prospects list is the one-stop-shop for you.

After taking a week off, I will be covering the past two weeks of action. Marc’s new mid-season top prospects list is dropping soon so stay tuned for it as well!

SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: Triple-A

Notable Performers

Heliot Ramos: 11 G, 40 AB, .225 AVG, .620 OPS, 4 2B, 4 RBI, 4 BB, 16 K
Jaylin Davis: 9 G, 34 AB, .324 AVG, 1.106 OPS, 2 2B, 1 3B, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 3 BB, 10 K, 2 SB
Joe McCarthy: 9 G, 29 AB, .310 AVG, 1.072 OPS, 2 2B, 3 HR, 3 BB, 9 K

The Giants brass is certainly aggressive in Heliot Ramos‘ assignments. After Heliot adjusted in early July, they rewarded him with a Triple-A promotion. His performance in the previously dubbed PCL this season has been filled with ups and downs, with a 2-4, two double performance sandwiched in between three games where he went 0-14 with six strikeouts. I do expect Ramos to repeat the level next season as a 22-year old, and I’m hoping that he can consistently put on a show next season like how Joey Bart did this season.

Jaylin Davis certainly loves playing in Triple-A, with another monster week trying to earn himself another shot at the big leagues. He now has hit 11 home runs and has a .667 slugging percentage and a .287 batting average for the River Cats. Davis has certainly proved that he can hit Triple-A level pitching after over a year and a half of play, but what makes him more of an AAAA-type player rather than a true everyday big leaguer is his ability to make contact against big-league pitching, we’ll see if he’s able to do that.

It’s really disappointing that Joe McCarthy‘s 2021 season in Triple-A is seemingly being wasted by the logjam in the outfield now that the Giants are in their push to win the NL West. With two more big flies this week, McCarthy’s brought his home run total to a career-high 15 this season alongside a .309 batting average and a .937 OPS. With plenty of veterans like Alex Dickerson on the outside looking in after this season, McCarthy could fill the hole that as a platoon option next season.
