5 of the most entertaining draft picks the SF Giants could make in the MLB draft

3. RHP/LHP Jurrangelo Cijntje

You don't see BHP very often. Not since Pat Venditte had a brief spell as a reliever for the Giants. Cijntje is nothing like Venditte. The 5-11, 200-pound, 21-year-old is one of the best switch pitchers the world has ever seen. He tops out at 99 mph from the right side and 95 mph from the left. In 2024, he had a 3.67 ERA with only 30 walks and 113 strikeouts in 90.2 IP. Talk about fun. Having a hard throwing, dynamic reliever hit the mid to high 90s with both arms as he strikes out the world is something out of a video game or science fiction and I want to see it so bad,

4. SS/OF Kellon Lindsey

I have the need and Kellon Lindsey has the speed. The Hardee HS product stands a 6 ft tall and weighs 175 pounds and is one of the fastest people you will ever see on a baseball diamond. The Trea Turner comparisons have begun with Lindsey being viewed as elite speed from the right side with a solid approach but who cares about the hitting (obviously, everyone) look how fluid he is. He looks like running water became a person and I am itching to see what that looks like at the big league level.
