DrB's 2018 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #12 Gregory Santos

Gregory Santos, RHP.  DOB:  8/28/1999.  6'2", 190 lbs.  IFA 2015(Red Sox).

DSL(Red Sox):  2-0, 0.89, 30.1 IP, 7.12 K/9, 4.45 BB/9, GO/AO= 4.55.
DSL(Giants):  1-0, 1.93, 18.2 IP, 8.20 K/9, 2.41 BB/9, GO/AO- 1.86.

Gregory Santos was one of two very nice pitching prospects to come to the Giants in the Eduardo Nunez trade to the Red Sox.  He's pitched 2 seasons in the DSL, but due to his birthdate, 2018 will be his age 18 season, which will likely be in Arizona.  He's got close to ideal size, a mid-90's FB and a nice mix of secondary pitches.  As you can see, his walk rate dropped dramatically after the trade.  Don't know if that's a sample size blip or if the Giants coaches were able to fix something quickly.  Then there is the sweet groundball rate.  It will take time for him to fully develop, but he's an exciting prospect with a high ceiling and a possible fast mover in the system.
