JOE PANIK RUMORS & GOSSIP

2014 Top Prospects – Part 2

Giants’ Top 10 lists have been rather intriguing and spread out…at least, after Kyle Crick.  There are varying thoughts about which of the mess of pitchers the Giants have are ahead of the others, there are disagreements about the ceilings of the low-ceiling offensive players, as well as how much to believe in some short-season stats.

SF Giants Rumors: Shortstop Christian Arroyo Is The Giants Number 1 Pick

If you missed it last night, the San Francisco Giants selected shortstop Christian Arroyo with their first pick (25th overall) in the 2013 MLB Draft.

Down on the Farm: Joe Panik

“A lot of us in the organization said he reminded us of Buster Posey,” said Richmond Flying Squirrels hitting coach, Ken Joyce. “In the sense that he has that same demeanor. He has that attitude in the way he goes about his business. He’s professional, came from a decent family, and a good school at St. John’s.” That kind of summation of a player sounds like something...

On the farm: Brown, Panik, Hembree updates

Between worrying about Tim Lincecum‘s performances, the recovery of a “heavier” Pablo Sandoval, the joys of watching Matt Cain pitch perfectly or Melky Cabrera move into third in the National League for starting outfielder in this summer’s All-Star game, I’ve decided to shed some light on the future of the Giants organization.

Joe Panik Isn’t the Shortstop of the Future; This Isn’t Terrible

Troy Tulowitzkis don’t grow on trees. Jose Reyeseses can’t be made from a Promethean mold. JJ Hardys don’t get released by two teams and then blossom into elit- sorry Brewers and Twins fans, got a bit off track there. Point is, there aren’t a lot of quality big league shortstops in the known universe. Few can combine an above average bat with crisp glove skills and enough...
