While it was a down year for the San Francisco Giants starting pitchers, the same can’t be said for the organization’s promising young arms in the minor leagues.
Their top pitching prospects, right-handers Kyle Crick and Clayton Blackburn, highlighted one of the best rotations in the minors at High-A San Jose—one that also included up-and-coming left-handers Adalberto Mejia and Ty Blach.
