It seems just a matter of days ago that the SF Giants promoted Marco Luciano to the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats, but after an incredible start through six games that saw him post two home runs and some highlight reel plays in the infield, he is now making the jump to the big leagues.
According to Alex Pavlovic, the Giants No. 2 overall prospect will be in the lineup making his Major League debut on Wednesday night against the Oakland Athletics after yet another quiet night from the Giants lineup.
The Giants may have broken their six game losing skid, but they managed just two runs on four hits in the game. With Casey Schmitt and Brett Wisely struggling, it was time to bring up the red-hot Luciano.
Marco Luciano may be exactly what the Giants need right now
In 62 games this year between AA and AAA, Luciano is hitting .235 with 13 home runs and 35 RBI, and after posting 53 home runs and 184 RBI over his four years in the minors, it's clear that if he can continue his hot hitting streak, he could be a major addition to this team.
No moment is too big for Luciano either, as he has consistently come up clutch over his time in the minors, and with his stellar play in the field, it became clear to all that the 21 year old is ready to make the leap to the major league level.
So after a tough stretch and a big time win against the Athletics on Tuesday, the Giants most hyped prospect in years is now on the way, so tune in Giants fans as we get yet another glimpse into the future of this organization. Luciano's promotion also could impact the Giants' plans at the trade deadline assuming he plays well.
