In the eighth chapter of the 2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List, the McCovey Chronicles community was divided on whether Will Bednar or Patrick Bailey was the San Francisco Giants No. 8 prospect, which each player earning the same number of votes in the four-player field.
And so we went to a runoff, where Bednar, a right-handed pitcher who was the team’s 2021 first-round pick, won with 59% of the vote. That slots Bailey, a catcher who was the team’s 2020 first-round pick, in at No. 9.
Now we round out the top 10, and we add four new names to choose from, in addition to the two holdovers.
The list so far
- Marco Luciano
