Hello and happy Sunday.
Programming note: There will be no recap today due to ... well, due to me not writing one.
The San Francisco Giants have released most of their Minor League rosters for their first year of Minor League Baseball since 2019, and their first since the
gutting of MiLB teams realignment.
Here’s the Double-A roster. Heliot Ramos returns to Richmond after playing 25 games there in 2019. The rotation is pretty stacked. pic.twitter.com/5Cn4IWUYox— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) May 1, 2021
Here’s the roster for Eugene, new High-A affiliate for the Giants. It includes Bishop, Bailey, Wilson and Corry, some of organizations best prospects. Teng and Wyatt were in big league camp: pic.twitter.com/IvtbMvyxYj— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) May 1, 2021
Here’s the San Jose Giants Low-A roster. About as much upside as Giants have ever had at an affiliate. Luciano, Harrison, Matos, Canario and much more: pic.twitter.com/8CDF7B74xb— Alex Pavlovic (@PavlovicNBCS) May 1, 2021
Those are some pretty stacked lineups. It’ll be interesting to see how long Heliot Ramos plays in AA before moving up to AAA to join Joey Bart.
