Eric Surkamp made a nice recovery from Tommy John surgery this year.
11. Starting pitcher Kendry Flores went 10-6 with a 2.73 ERA over 22 starts at Augusta. He struck out 137 against just 17 walks over 141.2 innings of work.
12. Starting pitcher Adalberto Mejia went 7-4 with a 3.31 ERA and 89 strikeouts in 87 innings at San Jose. Marc Hulet of FanGraphs recently wrote of Mejia, "The left-handed Mejia has some giddy-up on his heater and can work in the low 90s. His slider is impressive at times and his changeup is definitely more than a show-me pitch. He has the ceiling of a No. 3 starter, if he can build up his stamina."
13. Starting pitcher Ty Blach went 12-4 with a 2.90 ERA at San Jose. He struck out 117 against only 18 walks in 130.1 innings.
14. Starting pitcher Eric Surkamp went 7-1 with a 2.78 ERA over 11 starts for Triple-A Fresno in his return from Tommy John surgery. He could compete for a rotation spot next spring.
15. Third baseman Adam Duvall trails only Mac Williamson in the power department. Duvall hit .252/.320/.465 with 17 home runs and 23 doubles in 385 at-bats for Double-A Richmond in 2013.
16. Starting pitcher Joan Gregorio went 6-3 with a 4.00 ERA over 14 games at Augusta. The 21-year-old righty struck out 84 against only 17 walks in 69.2 innings.
17. Starting pitcher Michael Kickham went 7-7 with a 4.31 ERA over 20 starts at Fresno this year. The 24-year-old lefty has posted a 9.85 ERA over his first 24.2 big league innings, however.
18. Center fielder Gary Brown continued to struggle in 2013. He hit just .231/.286/.375 in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. The Giants elected against promoting the former first-round pick for a September audition.
19. Third baseman Ryder Jones hit .317/.394/.400 over 37 games in his professional debut after the Giants selected him the second round this year.
20. Center fielder Gustavo Cabrera hit .247/.379/.360 over 54 games in the Dominican Summer League. The Giants gave Cabrera a $1.3 million signing bonus last summer when he was ranked as the No. 5 international prospect.
