Dr B's 2014 Giants Top 50 Prospects: Honorable Mention Part III

Shayne Houck, 3B.  B-R, T-R.  6'1", 210 lbs.  DOB:  5/29/1990.
Low A:  .235/.332/.339, 5 HR, 36 BB, 80 K, 336 AB.  Hails from Kutztown St., Ryan Vogelsong's college.  Excellent plate discipline, a little power.  Not sure he has a place to play with Mitch Delfino apparently ahead of him on the depth chart in San Jose and Ryan Jones pretty much a lock to be manning 3B in Augusta.

Joe Biagini, RHP.  6'4", 215 lbs.  DOB:  5/29/1990.
Low A:  7-6, 5.03, 96.2 IP, 42 BB, 79 K, GO/AO= 1.51.  26'th round draft pick out of UC Davis, where he seldom pitched, in 2011.  Son of a former Giants farmhand.  The Giants obviously see something in him that does not show up in his stat lines as they keep giving him opportunities.  Not sure where he pitches in 2014 with the system overflowing in terrific young pitching.

Matt Lujan, LHP.  6'1", 210 lbs.  DOB:  8/23/1988.
Low A:  7-0, 3.33, 78.1 IP, 28 BB, 64 K, GO/AO= 1.94.  Lefty out of USF.  As you can see, he's an extreme groundball pitcher who had great success pitching at a low level.  Another guy who could get squeezed out by the logjam of pitchers in the lower minors.

Mason McVay, LHP.  6'7", 230 lbs.  DOB:  8/15/1990.
Low A:  3-5, 4.12, 67.2 IP, 18 BB, 75 K, 1 Save.  Big lefty who may have enough of an arsenal to start.  Can go multiple innings as a reliever.  Probably has a clearer path to the majors as a reliever in this system.  Looking forward to seeing him in San Jose.

Tyler Mizenko, RHP.  6'1", 200 lbs.  DOB:  4/9/1990.
Low A:  1-4, 2.75, 52.1 IP, 24 BB, 50 K, GO/AO= 2.62, 25 Saves.   Closer for Augusta in 2013 as he was for Salem-Keizer in 2012.  As most of you know, I am not a big fan of the Closer Track.  Mizenko had a great first half not allowing an ER until the season was almost half way over.  Struggled after that.  Probably takes a backseat to Dan Slania in San Jose.
