DrB's 2018 Giants Top 50 Prospects: #25 Sam Wolff

Sam Wolff, RHP.  DOB:  4/14/1991.  6'1", 204 lbs.  Drafted 2013 Round 6(Rangers).

2017(2 levels):  4-5, 2.93, 43.0 IP, 19 BB, 59 K.

Wolff was acquired by the Giants in the Matt Moore trade with the Rangers.  He's a hard throwing(as in triple digits) veteran minor leaguer who has missed time due to injury.  He was strong in AA and even stronger in AAA in 2017.  Part of the reason why the Rangers were willing to trade him is he will miss the first half of the 2018 season with a flexor tendon injury.  The Giants hope to catch lightening in a bottle when he is recovered.

  1. Could this be similar to the Strickland acquisition, obviously not same since that was waivers, but they see something they really like, and is willing to wait out the healing process to find out? THat was pretty good stats in 2017, definitely seems worth waiting for.
