The San Francisco Giants continue to struggle.
After losing two of three at home to the rival Los Angeles Dodgers, the Giants are now just 40-47. They've been outscored by 41 runs, and they're 6.5 games out of first place. Given how poorly the Giants have played over the last two months, it could be time to start thinking about the future in San Francisco.
The Giants' top prospect in the farm system is starting pitcher Kyle Crick. The Giants absolutely need to hold onto him at the trading deadline.
After Crick, there's a fairly steep drop-off into the second tier of talent. That group includes pitchers like Clayton Blackburn, Chris Stratton and Martin Agosta, as well as hitters such as Andrew Susac, Joe Panik and Gary Brown.
The Giants could conceivably deal from that tier at the deadline. However, any move they make needs to be with an eye towards 2014 because this season is looking more and more like a lost cause.
Let's take a look at how the Giants' top 10 prospects did last week.
