The San Francisco Giants' farm system is heavy on starting pitching talent, but light on the hitting side. After top prospect Kyle Crick, there's a noticeable drop-off in talent.
Crick was the lone prospect to make Baseball America's midseason top-50 prospect list for the Giants. He currently ranks as the 49th-best prospect in the game.
In the past, the Giants have had more clear distinctions among their top prospects, particularly when they had elite guys like Matt Cain, Tim Lincecum, Madison Bumgarner, Buster Posey and Brandon Belt.
This year, it's more difficult to distinguish between the players ranked behind Crick. That's why I've continued to note other prospects of interest beyond the top 10. The 15th-ranked player in this system probably has a similar chance of making it as the second-best.
Let's take a look at how the top Giants' prospects did during the season's 15th week.
