While writing yesterday’s article about the San Francisco Giants dance with the Los Angeles Angels, I found myself on the Giants lengthy January transaction page. Near the top were some exciting words: “San Francisco Giants invited non-roster RHP Sean Hjelle to spring training.”
Shortly below that, even more exciting words: “San Francisco Giants invited non-roster C Joey Bart to spring training.”
Pitchers and catchers report in 20 days; position players in 25. We’re very close to getting to see not just the Giants, but the Giants prospects.
So who are you most excited to watch in spring training? Who do you want to get an extended look at from a single, shaky camera angle with questionable or non-existent audio? Is it an obvious top prospect, like Joey Bart? Is it an unproven player who you know will spend a lot of time on the roster, like Mauricio Dubon or Logan Webb? Or is it a prospect on the periphery, like Steven Duggar or Jaylin Davis?
Lots of options, and, as a reminder, check out the great community prospect list that Kevin and Roger have been organizing.
