Scouting the Draft: 2016 Giants Draft Review Rounds 11-20

Round 11:  Jason Delay, C, Vanderbilt.  Did not sign.

*********************************************************************************

Round 12:  Ryan Kirby, 1B.  22 yo.  B-L, T-R.  6'2", 180 lbs.  College- San Diego.  Highest Level- SS.

Rookie:  .375/.333/.375, 8 AB.
Short Season:  .260/.345/.398, 16 2B, 3 HR, 22 BB, 49 K, 196 AB.

Pretty good plate discipline.  May be underpowered for a 1B.  Grade B-

*********************************************************************************

Round 13:  Jose Layer, OF.  20 yo.  B-R, T-R.  6'0", 160 lbs.  HS PR.  Highest Level- Rookie.

Rookie:  .283/.356/.377, 5 2B, 5 BB, 7 K, 53 AB.

Giants love to take fliers on PR HS kids in the early teen rounds.  No exception here.  Love the upside. Very nice little pro debut.  Hit .324 over his last 10 games(out of 13 total).  Grade B

*********************************************************************************

Round 14:  Conner Menez, LHP.  22 yo.  6'3", 195 lbs.  College- The Masters(Santa Clarita, CA).  Highest Level- High A.

Rookie:  2-0, 2.57, 21 IP, 4 BB, 26 K.
Short Season:  0-1, 7.20, 5 IP, 1 BB, 4 K.
High A:  2-0, 4.94, 27.1 IP, 11 BB, 20 K.

Pitched 6.2 shutout innings in his final start 9/2 against Visalia.  Grade B

*********************************************************************************

Round 15:  DJ Myers, RHP.  22 yo.  6'5", 255 lbs.  College- UNLV.  Highest Level- AAA.

Rookie:  3-2, 1.70, 58.1 IP, 5 BB, 52 K, GO/AO= 1.50.
AAA:  0-0. 0.00, 1 IP, 0 BB, 1 K.

Big body RHP.  Not sure why he pitched so many innings in rookie ball.  Pitched 1 shutout inning for Sacramento.  Does that get him ticketed to SJ?  AA?  AAA?  Giants sometimes do unexpected things with their placements.  Grade B

*********************************************************************************

Round 16:  Chris Falwell, LHP.  22 yo.  6'7", 210 lbs.  College- Texas A&M, Corpus Christi.  Highest Level- Short Season.

Rookie:  3-1, 2.73, 33 IP, 12 BB, 20 K, GO/AO= 1.17.
Short Season:  0-0, 5.40, 1.2 IP, 0 BB, 2 K.

All appearances were in relief.  Giants like their tall pitchers.  They like their tall LHP's even better.  Falwell is probably a future lefty specialist.  Grade C

*********************************************************************************

Round 17:  Reagan Bazar, RHP.  22 yo.  6'7", 250 lbs.  College- Louisiana-Lafayette.  Highest Level- Rookie.

Rookie:  2-2, 4.91, 18.1 IP, 13 BB, 15 K, GO/AO= 2.00.

Big!  Hard Thrower!  Wild hair up his nose!  Project with a high ceiling and a high risk.  Why not?  Grade D

*********************************************************************************

Round 18:  Jacob Heyward, OF.  21 yo.  B-R, T-R.  6'3", 210 lbs.  College- Auburn.  Highest Level- Short Season.

Rookie:  .337/.488/.579, 10 2B, 5 3B, HR, 24 BB, 30 K, 95 AB.
Short Season:  .286/.444/.429, 2 2B, 3 BB, 3 K, 14 AB.

Jason Heyward's lil' bro.  Not sure how he lasted until round 18.  Love the pick!  Spent too much time in rookie ball.  Went 3 for 3 with a BB in his final game for Salem-Keizer.  Grade B

*********************************************************************************

Round 19:  Brandon Van Horn, SS.  23 yo.  B-R, T-R.  6'2", 175 lbs.  College- The Masters(Santa Clarita, CA).  Highest Level- Short Season.

Rookie:  .231/.328/.300, 7 2B, 2 3B, 24 BB, 47 K, 160 AB.
Short Season:  .286/.375/.714, HR, BB, K, 7 AB.

Slick fielding college SS.  Bat is a project.  Grade C

*********************************************************************************

Round 20:  Justin Alleman, RHP.  23 yo.  6'1", 220 lbs.  College- Lee(TN).  Highest Level- Rookie.

0-0, 11.81, 5.1 IP, 1 BB, 4 K.

Sturdy RHP.  Obviously a project.  Grade D-
