Prospecting John Bowker(notes), SF, 1/O – The Giants have hit the second-fewest home runs in the league. Its first base position has produced a .785 OPS, ranking No. 22 in the league. Its left field spot has generated a .675 OPS, good for No. 26 in the league. Its right field has generated a .728 OPS (No. 24 in the league). You see where I’m going with this … At Triple-A Fresno, Bowker, who played at least five games for the Giants in ’08 at each of the positions mentioned, is one of only two players still in the PCL with an OPS above 1.000 (1.033). He’s also one of three players with 10-plus home runs and steals (13/10). Oh, and he’s fourth in the league in walks (41) … and he’s hit five home runs in his past seven games. A former third-round pick in ’04, Bowker will turn 26 on July 8. Last season, he fared as well as you could expect in his 111-game rookie campaign with the Giants – .255 BA, .708 OPS, 10 HR. All of this is to say, I’m really not sure what the Giants are waiting for. His current production and age scream for another shot.
