San Francisco Giants: Stock Up, Stock Down for Top 10 Prospects for Week 18
Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports
Kyle Crick remains the top prospect for the Giants.

The trade deadline came and went last week with the San Francisco Giants standing pat. They weren't able to upgrade a farm system that Baseball America ranked 28th prior to the season.

The Giants are in last place with a 49-61 record. They're 12 games back of the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West. Given where the Giants have been in the standings, they clearly weren't going to be buyers at the deadline.

General manager Brian Sabean set a high price for impending free agents Hunter Pence, Tim Lincecum and Javier Lopez. No team was willing to meet Sabean's asking price for those players. After the deadline, Sabean said (h/t Alex Pavlovic, San Jose Mercury News):

We were in a position to have some leverage and we used the leverage. We set the bar high and had specific returns in mind. People missed the mark – people didn’t even approach or get close to the mark. That was frustrating if not almost embarrassing that they would say they had interest, but in fact it would come back with marginal or less than marginal interest.

Thus, the Giants will close out this season with the same roster and set of top prospects that they entered the year with. Let's take a look at how the top Giants' prospects did last week to determine if any of them can help the struggling big league team in the near future.
