DrB's 2015 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #48 Ty Ross

Ty Ross, C.  1/17/1992.  B-R, T-R.  6'1", 203 lbs.

Low A:  .246/.313/.347, 6 HR, 8.1 BB%, 18.4 K%, 472 PA.

Ty Ross is a defense first catcher drafted in the 12'th round in 2013 out of LSU.  His bat started to come alive in the second half of 2014 as he put up a .264/.331/.395, 5 HR line in 242 AB for Augusta. With the current emphasis on catcher defense, a guy like Ross becomes more valuable in the organization.  If he hits a little, there will be a place for him on a future MLB roster.  Expect him to move up to San Jose in 2015 where he will get a chance to hit in a much more friendly environment than Augusta and the SAL.


  1. Speaking of defense first catchers, where is Williams (forgot his first name) whom we took in the second or compensation round, I believe the same year we drafted Noonan?

    1. Could be wrong, but I think Williams is with the Rockies and did some backup work for the MLB team last year.

    2. Yes, he did. Jackson Williams. He is now listed with Salt Lake in the Angels system.
