San Francisco Giants: 5 Prospects Who Look to Be Taking a Step Back This Year
Gregory Bull/Associated Press
Kyle Crick was awesome in 2013, but has struggled this year.

In 2013, the San Francisco Giants really did not bring up a solid minor league player to join their big league roster. The talk was all about how the Giants' best prospects were younger and we would see them making bigger strides in 2014 and 2015.

The most recent players to come through the Giants' farm system and make a major impact were Brandon Belt and Brandon Crawford. They both arrived in San Francisco in 2011.

Since 2012, only Hector Sanchez, a reserve catcher, has been a consistent member of the team.

The excitement was high for many of the younger players who were further down in the Giants' farm system. However, the luster is fading for some of these players, as they are struggling and facing hurdles in 2014.

Let's take a closer look at those prospects who have seen the brightness of their star diminish this year.
