The SF Giants recently called up Heliot Ramos, who had been tearing it up in Triple-A with the River Cats. Which player will be the next to receive a promotion to the big leagues? As of right now, Casey Schmitt seems like a strong candidate.

Which SF Giants minor leaguer will be called up next after Heliot Ramos?

This can be difficult to predict because many times minor leaguers are promoted because there is an injury on the big league club that necessitates a call-up. This was the case with Ramos as he received the call to join the Giants because Jorge Soler went on the IL.

Of course, one cannot predict when the next injury will happen to a Giants player. However, we can take a look at some players who are doing well in Triple-A and see who may be the next one to receive a promotion.

1. Casey Schmitt

Giants fans may recall last season when Casey Schmitt was called up in May and tore the cover off the ball. He looked like he could be the shortstop of the future but he cooled off considerably as the season wore on. Right now in Triple-A, he is slashing .276/.320/.448 with 5 home runs and 31 RBI. For him to get on the roster there would probably have to be an injury to one of the team's infielders. Of course, no one hopes that happens but if it does perhaps Schmitt can build upon the start he had last year and have more sustainable success.

2. Marco Luciano

Presumed to be the starting shortstop much of the offseason, a rough spring for Marco Luciano got him sent to the minors to start the year. Right now he is slashing .280/.407/.364 with one home run and 20 RBI. Nick Ahmed has played well enough to hold onto his spot as the starting shortstop, but if he falters or if there is an injury to an infielder, Luciano may get the call.

3. Justin Garza

Relief pitchers usually get cycled through more than position players which is why Justin Garza could be called up soon. Garza currently sports an ERA of 0.96 in 11 relief appearances. He could get called up if there is an injury or if the Giants decide to get rid of Sean Hjelle or Luke Jackson.

We will have to wait and see who the next Giants call-up will be.
