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

Carlos Diaz, LHP.  DOB:  11/18/1993.  6'2", 176 lbs.

Low A:  4-3, 1.63, 55.1 IP, 12.20 K/9, 2.77 BB/9, GO/AO= 1.42, 5 Saves.

Diaz has been hanging around in the low minors seemingly forever.  Had a great season out of the bullpen for Augusta.  Can this be a spring board to success at higher levels?


Tyler Rogers, RHP.  DOB:  12/17/1990.  6'4", 190 lbs.

A+:  5-1, 1.47, 79.1 IP, 9.76 K/9, 2.27 BB/9, GO/AO= 2.69, 1 Save.
AA:  0-1, 5.91, 10.2 IP, 12.66 K/9, 4.22 BB/9, GO/AO= 0.36.

Sidearmer with a high K rate to go with the great GB rate.  Good chance for a MLB career as a reliever.


Ty Ross, C.  B-R, T-R.  DOB:  1/17/1992.  6'2", 210 lbs.

A+:  .244/.303/.332, 15 2B, 3 HR, 7.9 BB%, 21.5 K%.

Defensive catcher who might learn to hit.


Seth Harrison, OF.  B-R, T-R.  7/22/1992.  6'1", 195 lbs.

Low A:  .253/.301/.356, 6 SB, 6.3 BB%, 18.9 K%.
A+:  .212/.268/.307, 4 HR, 13 SB, 5.3 BB%, 27.2 K%.

Has some speed, but not a whole lot else going for him right now.


Tyler Horan, OF.  B-L, T-R.  DOB:  12/2/1990.  6'2", 230 lbs.

A+:  .215/.311/.392, 20 2B, 13 HR, 5 SB, 11.9 BB%, 24.6 K%, BABIP= .256, 396 PA.

Injuries may have played a role in a tough season after showing a nice combination of average and power in his first full pro campaign in 2014.  Can he rebound in 2016?


  1. Rogers is another 'funky delivery' guy I've been rooting fors. I think he's classified as a submariner because of the waist-bend and extremely low delivery though the action of the arm is sidearm.

    Anyway, I'm one those guys that roots for the 'weird' or 'atypical' or 'unheralded' kind of players. That's the big Lincecum thing for me. Law. Rogers. Duffy. Guys that are just different or discounted or just don't look like they could make it in a professional sport because they don't fit the 'paradigm' of the position.

    1. I think it's good for every bullpen to have 1 sidearm/submarine guy from each side just for a different look.
