Bill Pecota's son, Giants fans, and actual videos from MLB.com! Who will be the next Sergio Romo, Bill Mueller, or Matt Duffy?

The third and final day of the 2015 MLB Draft is over, and the Giants sure took a lot of baseball players. Here some notable 10th-round-or-lower picks from Giants drafts of the past:

  • Pete Incaviglia (didn't sign)
  • Chili Davis
  • Chris M.F. Heston
  • Jack Clark
  • Bill Mueller
  • Matt Duffy
  • J.D. Drew (didn't sign)
  • Gary Lavelle
  • Travis Ishikawa
  • Brian Wilson
  • Jonathan Sanchez
  • Sergio Romo

There are All-Stars and champions to be found if you grind away at the draft for enough time, like a river carving out a canyon. Here are the draft picks from the Giants from the 11th round through the 40th round. Video and scouting included, if I can find it.

  • But they're new to us, dammit

★★★

(Dig the slo-mo jumper in the background.)

★★★

17th: Cameron Avila-Leeper, LHP, San Joaquin Delta College

Link

"One game here," Jennifer Leeper said, "a Giants scout wanted my spot. I wasn’t going to move. I’m superstitious. Need my spot. So he said, ‘OK, then, we’ll sit leg-to-leg.’"

★★★

18th: Heath Slatton, RHP, Middle Tennessee State

  • 7.99 career ERA
  • 5.94 walks per nine innings
  • Very reliever name
  • Go get 'em, Dick Tidrow

  • .934 OPS, with 12 homers in 208 Southern Conf. AB

★★★

24th: Zachary Bowers, C, U. of Georgia, bats R

Link:

He’s still going to swing and miss more than you’d like, but there’s a chance with continued work he can get that aspect under enough control to put his big raw power to use. I’ve personally moved away from the arm/power catcher archetype in recent years (I now lean towards athleticism and plate discipline), but the upside of a player like Bowers is undeniable.

  • .252/.421/.503, 8 HR, 37 BB, 55K in 155 AB

★★★

25th: Michael Silva, RHP, Loyola Marymount

  • #441 on Baseball America's Top 500 list
  • Scouting includes: " He comes out of Loyola Marymount’s bullpen blowing straight gas, with a fastball sitting at 93-95 mph and regularly hitting 96. It’s scatter-shot control in short bursts"
  • 2.77 ERA in 2015
  • 39 IP
  • 29 BB
  • 40 K
  • Walked 56 in 21⅓ innings in the West Coast League
  • Pitched for the Klamath Falls Gems
  • Was probably sad because he played in Klamath Falls
  • YOU SUCK, OIT

★★★

26th: Tyler Brown, SS, College of Southern Nevada
Link:

Of course I want to steal a lot of bases and hit for a high average, but I am known as a speed guy so it would be nice to hit at least five home runs. hopefully everything else will fall into place with hard work and persistence.

★★★

27th: Bryan Case, C, Oklahoma St., bats R
Link:

was named to the Big 12 Baseball Championship All-Tournament Team ... hit .308 (4-for-13) with two homers in the tourney to help Cowboys advance to final ... was 4-for-11 with a homer and two RBIs in NCAA Stillwater Regional and was named to the all-tournament team.

...

... favorite team is the San Francisco Giants

HI BRYAN.

★★★

★★★

30th: Tucker Forbes, RHP, UCLA

  • #265 on BA's Top-500 list
  • Scouting report includes ". The 6-foot-8, 235-pound redshirt sophomore harnessed the power in his 90-92 mph fastball that regularly reached 94 mph early in the season. Forbes throws a lots strikes, particularly to his glove side and generally pitches downhill, getting good extension out front and getting on top of hitters."
  • That sounds sweet
  • 45 strikeouts, nine walks in 38⅓ innings this year
  • Missed 2014
  • A's fan, according to his Twitter account
  • Followed by Jose Bautista

★★★

31st: Ryan Howard, SS, U. of Missouri, bats R

  • No videos because "Ryan Howard baseball" is a useless Google search
  • But at least you're thinking of the other Ryan Howard playing shortstop
  • That would be cool
  • The other Ryan Howard went to Missouri State, which is confusing
  • Hit .308/.369/.433 this year in 58 games

★★★

32nd: Jeff Burke, RHP, Boston College

★★★

33rd: Rafael Ramirez, RHP, Calusa Prep (Florida)

★★★

34th: Travis Moniot, SS, Palm Desert (Calif.), bats S

★★★

35th: Drew Jackson, RHP, Florida Atlantic

  • 2.44 ERA in 13 starts this year
  • 55 strikeouts and 17 walks in 73⅓ innings

★★★

36th: Brendon Little, LHP, Conestoga HIgh (Pennsylvania)

  • Committed to North Carolina
  • Ranked #159 on Baseball America's top prospect list
  • Scouting report from BA reads "he was consistently 89-92 on the summer showcase circuit and has hit 93 again this spring, though he pitches more at 88-91. His second pitch is his tumbling changeup, which he’s shown good feel for at times, and the pitch misses bats against righthanded hitters."
  • Almost certainly isn't signing with the Giants

★★★

37th: Mark Weist, 3B, Michigan St., bats R

★★★

38th: Nathaniel Pecota, LF, Blue Springs South High (Missouri)

  • Projects well
  • That is a nerd joke
  • Bill Pecota's son

  • Rad name
  • Make sure to include quotes when searching for name
