DrB's 2016 Giants Top 50 Prospects: Honorable Mention Part III

Luis Pino, RHP.  DOB:  11/4/1994.  6'0", 175 lbs.

Rookie AZL:  2-1, 2.89, 18.2 IP, 9.16 K/9, 1.93 BB/9, GO/AO= 0.85.
Short Season:  4-1, 1.43, 44 IP, 4.09 K/9, 2.86 BB/9, GO/AO= 0.95.

The K rate kind of cratered after his promotion to S-K.  Is that a sample size thing?  We'll see where he turns up this year.


Tyler Brown, 2B.  B-R, T-R.  DOB:  1/15/1995.  6'1", 180 lbs.

Rookie AZL:  .356/.422/.540, 9 2B, 2 3B, HR, 3 SB, 6.9 BB%, 16.7 K%, 102 PA.

Drafted out of the same JC as Phil Bickford.  He was a bit old for the AZL, but many 4 year college draftees do worse.  I'd guess we see him in Augusta this year and we'll get to see what he's really made of.


Dillon Dobson, 1B.  B-L, T-R.  DOB:  8/21/1993.  6'1", 220 lbs.

Rookie AZL:  .297/.347/.475, 15 2B, 6 3B, 3 HR, 2 SB, 6.8 BB%, 20.3 K%, 222 PA.
Short Season:  .182/.217/.273, 4.2 BB%, 16.7 K%, 24 PA.

Drafted as a 2B, but moved to 1B.  Way old for Rookie ball.  Expect to see him in Augusta in 2016 which will be the big challenge.


Kendry Melo, RHP.  DOB:  1/7/1994.  6'3", 210 lbs.

Rookie AZL:  2-0, 4.15, 30.1 IP, 12.76 K/9, 4.45 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.13.

Melo is a big kid who throws hard but had a wild hair up his nose.  He lowered his BB/9 from 10.50 in 2014 to 4.45 in 2015.  The Giants may try to make him a starter once he has a harness on that FB.


Dylan Brooks, RHP.  DOB:  8/20/1995.  6'7", 230 lbs.

Rookie AZL:  1-2, 2.25 ERA, 32 IP, 7.59 K/9, 2.81 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.79, 3 Saves.

Nice numbers after coming off a 50 game suspension.  Unfortunately, we get news that he has tested positive again this offseason and has to serve another 50 gamer.  I would say that does not bode well for his future.  No matter what you think of MJ laws, the rules are the rules and he knows consequences.  You get caught once, you get the benefit of the doubt.  Get caught again, and you might have a serious attitude or mental health issue.
