We officially have a top three in our community San Francisco Giants prospect rankings. After repeating the same top two as in 2021, we have a new entrant who is taking the crown as the No. 3 prospect on the Giants farm: outfielder Luis Matos, who moves up two spots from his placement last year.
Matos, who is still about six weeks away from his 20th birthday, had a strong year for the Low-A San Jose Giants. He slashed .313/.358/.494, good for a 121 wRC+, and displayed outstanding control of the zone, striking out in just 12.4% of his plate appearances.
He won the third CPL by a very slim margin, receiving just four more votes (out of 707!) than Camilo Doval.
Of note: today is nomination day, so please respond to the first comment with nominees (one per comment) you’d like to see added to Monday’s CPL. Then rec the names you agree with.
