Giant Pitching Prospects Kyle Crick, Chris Stratton Struggle in Loss to Reds

There were flashes of brilliance, featuring eye-popping fastballs and knee-buckling off-speed pitches. There were also missed locations and seven runs accounted for by Chris Stratton and Kyle Crick, two of San Francisco’s top pitching prospects during the Giants’ 10-4 loss to Cincinnati during Cactus League action on Monday, March 16. Stratton, a right-hander, got the call to start...

On the Farm, Week 23: Prospect Decliners of 2014

At long last my season of “On the Farm” has come to an end. I was thinking to myself while writing this that it’s a shame to end the year on a down note by talking about some prospects whose years didn’t go as expected. Oh well, we can change up the format next year! As with all struggles they open the door to triumphant returns and there’s no doubt we haven’t heard the...

San Francisco Giants: Why they made no Trades

The 2014 Trade Deadline was one of the best in recent memory. It saw the Oakland A’s and Detroit Tigers exchange jabs in an arms race for American League supremacy. It saw the St. Louis Cardinals improve themselves with the acquisitions of John Lackey and Justin Masterson. It also saw the San Francisco Giants and Dodgers surprisingly stand pat and do nothing. What was the Giants...

DFP: The Deadline Cometh

Did the Cubs Win? Nope. Maybe they should have pinch hit a few pitchers. Trade Deadline Update The deadline is at 3 pm CT. The Cubs were active yesterday. No word yet on the where Emilio Bonifacio is headed, but the Royals have been mentioned, which is almost too cruel. The Giants are also a potential destination, and have released Dan Uggla. Grant Brisbee made a joke about Kyle...

Ok guys, today I went to probably my favorite Spring Training game of all time – the San Francisco Giants B-squad vs. the Giants futures. There was no one in the stands, it was nerdy, and I loved it. Here are some things that I took away from Sundays game: 1. Madison Bumgarner is good at baseball. He made light of the futures line-up by tossing four shut-out innings. He gave up...

San Francisco Giants Left Field Situation

As we’re in the midst of the Winter Meetings, the San Francisco Giants will look to fill the gaping hole they have in left field.   With a weak free agent class and the lack of depth within the Giants minor league system, Brian Sabean will need to be creative if he wants to fill the Giants weakest position. I see the Giants looking for a veteran power hitter who can add some...

Q&A: Kyle Crick, San Francisco Giants Pitching Prospect

Kyle Crick isn’t a nibbler. The 6-foot-4 right-hander’s approach is to attack hitters, and while his command isn’t where it should be, he’s going about things the right way. In 14 starts this year for high-A San Jose — an oblique injury kept him on the shelf for part of the season — he logged a 1.57 ERA and struck out 12.5 batters per nine innings. Crick is a power pitcher...

2014 Top 10 Prospects: San Francisco Giants

Despite their penchant for dealing prospects for veterans, the Giants have amassed an impressive group of young arms that ranges from potential frontline starter to back-end innings-eaters (and everything in between). What the organization lacks, though, is a potential impact bat.   #1 Kyle Crick | 65/A+ (P) Age G GS IP H HR K/9 BB/9 ERA FIP 20 21 19 84.1 57 2 12.70 5.34...

Very Final Statistical Report for the Arizona Fall League

The author has published a weekly statistical report for the Arizona Fall League each week since its brief season commenced back in October — not necessarily because such a thing is of great utility to prospect analysis, but more because, for those of us not currently present in the Greater Phoenix area, it’s one of the few ways to participate in that very compelling league....
