MyGuy2018™ Results

MyGuy™ means seeing Giants prospects that are undervalued.
It is picking players that did not stand out in 2017 but you saw breakout seasons coming for them in 2018. What do the stats show us? Take a look.

Let’s get the bad news out of the way first …
Going in Reverse

Chris Shaw [2015 #1 pick] improved from 18 to 24 HR in Sacramento but with 62 PA’s at the MLB level he only hit 1 HR and had a 37.1% K-rate. His wRC+ fell from 116 last year to wRC+ of 78 this year.

Tyler Beede [2014 #1 pick] – 74.1 IP, 7.05 ERA in Sacramento

Stepping Up

The good ones we picked …
Aramis Garcia, Heath Quinn, Jalen Miller, Shaun Anderson, Andrew Suarez, Logan Webb

John Gavin … see their leading performance numbers below.

The good ones we did not even see coming …
Dereck Rodriguez [Minor league free agent] – 19 MLB starts; 118.1 IP, 2.81 ERA [10th in MLB]

Jason Fargas [2013 #11 pick] – Tenth in batting average; 10 OF assists; led Cal League with 47 SB

Manuel Geraldo [2013 International signing] – Third in SAL with a .294 Batting Average

New Bright Young Faces

Joey Bart [2018 #1 pick] – #23 prospect on MLB list; Salem/Keizer – .298 / .613 / .983 with 13 HR in 181 AB’s. The parallels with Buster are hard to miss; college grad from Georgia. Buster jumped from S/K to San Jose and that is what to expect for Bart.

Jake Wong [2018 #3 pick] – S/K with 27.1 IP / 2.30 ERA

New, Not-So-Bright, But Still Young Faces

Heliot Ramos [2017 #1 pick] #74 on MLB Pipeline; 19-year-old fell from .348 to .245

Jacob Gonzalez [2017 #2 pick] – 20-year-old fell from .339 to .227

Sean Hjelle [2018 #2 pick] … S/K with 21.1 IP / 5.06 ERA
