The 13th edition of the 2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List brought us our third San Francisco Giants prospect making his CPL debut, and our second from the 2021 MLB Draft class. Narrowly winning the vote in an eight-name field, left-handed pitcher Matt Mikulski has been voted by the community as the No. 13 prospect in the Giants organization.
Mikulski, who will turn 23 early in the 2022 season, was selected by the Giants in the second round of the draft, with the No. 50 pick. As was the case with all of the organization’s draft picks, Mikulski was slow played in his debut season, so we don’t have very much to work with beyond his impressive body of work at Fordham University. After being drafted, the lefty played exclusively in the Arizona Complex League, where he appeared in 4 games and pitched 5 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 walks, and 0 runs, while striking out 5 batters.
In his final college season, Mikulski had a 1.45 ERA and 0.820 WHIP, with 124 strikeouts to 27 walks in 68.1 innings.
Now let’s march on.
