For the second straight year, the San Francisco Giants have three prospects in Baseball America’s top 100. And for the second straight year, those three prospects are shortstop Marco Luciano, catcher Joey Bart, and outfielder Heliot Ramos, in that order.
Luciano rose in the rankings, climbing up from No. 17 in the final 2020 rankings to be named as BA’s No. 12 prospect in all of baseball this year, with the publication saying that “his bat should make him a standout regardless of position.”
The other two, however, went backwards. After a rough MLB debut, Bart dropped from No. 28 to No. 41, with BA calling his power and glove “solid,” despite the contact issues in 2020. And Ramos, with no Minor League season, fell from No. 58 to No. 83, with BA citing his lack of glaring weaknesses as a reason for optimism.
Giants fans will probably be a little disappointed with these rankings, given that there’s been a feeling of growth in the farm system recently. But with a more normal year of prospect development and Minor League Baseball, perhaps we’ll see these three rise, and maybe be joined by another Giants prospect or two.
