Juan Perez came up from the farm system and made a great catch for the Giants on Sunday.

The San Francisco Giants have turned to their farm system for contributions from journeyman reliever Jean Machi, utility players Brett Pill and Nick Noonan, and starting pitching prospect Michael Kickham this season.

Outfielder Juan Perez was the latest farmhand to come up and help the Giants. He made a sensational running catch and drove in a run to help the Giants defeat the first-place Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Machi has emerged as a primary setup man in the bullpen. Perez looks like he could be a contributor along with Pill off the bench. Sometimes, the less heralded minor league players are the ones who come from out of nowhere to make a major contribution to the big league squad.

The farm system is ultimately there to help the major league team, whether through promotions or trades to acquire professional talent. The Giants have been getting some help from the farm system already in 2013.

Let's dive and see how the top 10 prospects did during week 10 of the season.
