Hello and happy Sunday.
The San Francisco Giants appear to have suffered some more bad news on the prospect injury front. After Heliot Ramos missed much of the Fall Instructional Leagues due to an oblique injury, and Alexander Canario had to have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder, reliever Melvin Adon appeared to suffer an injury a few days ago.
Adon was pitching in the Dominican Winter League, and his fastball was rather easily hitting the triple digit mark. And then he seemed to suffer an injury after a pitch, and had to leave the game. As always, @giantsprospects has the footage:

Adon, a 26-year old righty, is the No. 15 ranked prospect in the Giants system, per Fangraphs, with an 80/80 fastball, and a 40+ FV. Given his age and the fact that he’s already on the 40-man roster, he seemed like a good bet to start the season on the active roster. Obviously that could be called into question if this apparent injury is severe.
Fingers crossed that it’s something minor.
