Down on the Farm: DrB's 2015 Giants Top 50 Prospects Review Honorable Mention Part 4
Again, this is a REVIEW of the 2015 list. The 2016 list will be out sometime after the Winter Meetings:
Jeremy Sy, IF. Low A: .247/.346/.372, 4 HR, 12 SB in 231 AB.
Jeremy voluntarily retired after playing a game on 7/15/2015 in which he went 3 for 4. Stock: Retired.
Ryan Jones, IF. Low A: .219/.303/.240 in 96 AB.
Jones got a late start due to a suspension, played poorly and was released on 7/15/2015. Stock: Released.
Chase Johnson, RHP. High A: 8-3, 2.43, 111.0 IP, 34 K, 111 K's, GO/AO= 1.60. AA: 1-1, 5.93, 13.2 IP, 8 BB, 18 K's, GO/AO= 1.40.
Chase Johnson had a breakout season for SJ putting up dominant numbers. ERA was not as good after a promo to AA in a SSS, but the 18 K's look promising. Should start next season for AA Richmond and I expect him to dominate again. Stock- Up, Way Up!
Steven Messner, LHP. DNP. Released 3/20/2015.
Carlos Diaz, LHP. Low A: 4-3, 1.63, 55.1 IP, 17 BB, 75 K's, GO/AO= 1.42, 9 Saves.
Let's see, a lefty reliever who can go multiple innings with a K/9 of 12 and a strong GB tendency? Didn't they just have a pretty elaborate ceremony honoring a guy who fit that general description? Diaz has to prove it at higher levels but the numbers here look very good. Stock- Up.
Robert Ramer, RHP. DNP. He was apparently injured all season and reinstated from the DL a few days ago. Stock- Down.
DJ Snelton, LHP. High A: 0-5, 4.84, 35.1 IP, 15 BB, 31 K, GO/AO= 1.31. Low A: 5-6, 2.86, 85 IP, 19 BB, 95 K's, GO/AO= 1.50.
This is going to sound very similar to Pat Young's comment. Numbers were great for Augusta except he washed out in San Jose. Hopefully he'll get another try at SJ next year and fare better, because I really like his ceiling. Stock- Stable.
Conner Kaden, RHP. Low A: 2-4, 3.81, 49.2 IP, 23 BB, 37 K's, GO/AO= 1.71.
Decent numbers in first full season. Stock- Stable.
Seth Harrison, OF. Low A: .253/.301/.356, 6 SB in 87 AB. High A: .212/.268/.307, 4 HR, 13 SB in 345 AB.
Yikes! I did not realize how bad Harrison was going for San Jose. That is really bad! Stock- Down.
Jason Forjet, RHP. High A: 7-4, 2.67, 94.1 IP, 18 BB, 86 K's.
Solid numbers for SJ. Should move up to AA Richmond next year. Stock- Up.
