Michael Kickham is the first of the top prospects called up to the Giants this year.

The San Francisco Giants have called up one of their top prospects for the first time this season. Manager Bruce Bochy announced on Sunday that Michael Kickham will replace injured starter Ryan Vogelsong in the rotation, according to Alex Pavlovic via Twitter.

Kickham has put up a 4.33 ERA while striking out 54 hitters against 22 walks in 54 innings of work this year. The 24-year-old lefty has good stuff, including a fastball that tops out at 94 miles per hour.

Let's take a look at how Kickham and the rest of the top prospects performed in the eighth week of the season.
