Giants' GM Brian Sabean has had some big wins and a few losses with his draft prospects.

The San Francisco Giants have won two of the past three World Series titles and a big reason for that is the quality of young talent that has recently come up to the majors in San Francisco.

Homegrown talent that grew up in the Giants' minor league system include Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval, Brandon Crawford and Brandon Belt.

Several of the Giants' top pitchers made their way up through the Giants' system a well, including Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Madison Bumgarner and Sergio Romo.

However, with every success story, there are also players who were hyped by the organization or the media that never quite made it.

Let's take a look at 13 of those unlucky players who never lived up to that hype.
