Giants top 30 prospects post draft (Edited-with stats and everything!)

After the draft who are your top 30 prospects? I'm making assumptions that all reasonable draftees will sign (IE yes to Gary Brown, no to Golden Tate)-if I'm not sure whether or not they'll sign I'll leave them off the list (like Brandon Allen).  Anyway here is my list.

16-Seth Rosin-RHP

Current level: Has not yet signed-expected to report to Salem-Keizer

Quick and Dirty scouting report:

Very good fastball, in terms of both Velo (mid 90's) and command, but suspect secondary pitches make him a candidate to move to the bullpen.

Hitting: .250/.297/.336

27-Carter Jurica-SS

Current level: Has not yet signed-expected to report to Salem-Keizer

Quick and Dirty scouting report:

Jurica is a guy who has a lot of good tools but no great tools. He profiles best as a 2B, but could easily end up as a utility guy.

28-Joe Martinez-RHP

Current level: AAA

Pitching: ERA=3.07, IP=67.1, K: BB 52:22

29-Daryl Maday-RHP

30-Darren Ford-OF

*I know he's technically not a prospect, but since he used up his eligibility as a hitter I figured it was OK.

 

5 Honorable mentions

Juan Carlos Perez-OF

Ryan Rohlinger-INF

Johnny Monell-C

Eric Hacker-RHP

Drew Biery-3B

 EDITS:

I moved Carter Jurica down because the more I read about him the less he sounded like a top 20 prospect to me, and I could probably be swayed to knock him out of the 30.

Also if since I included Downs and Posey, I should also probably have included Runzler-but instead I'll just tell you that he would've ranked 4th.

 Lastly one stat I found that made me optimistic was that Zack Wheeler appears to have a ground out rate of 2.75 which is something I am thrilled to see.

 

Anyway what do your lists look like?
