We’ve ranked 15 San Francisco Giants prospects so far in the 2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List, and we just came across our fourth member of the 2020 draft class, as well as our second relief pitcher. With a comfortable lead in the six-player field, right-handed pitcher R.J. Dabovich has been voted as the No. 15 prospect on the farm.

Dabovich, who was No. 36 in his first CPL last year, made his debut in 2021 and was electric. He started in High-A, where he had a 1.42 ERA and 3.03 FIP, recording 28 strikeouts to 6 walks in 12.2 innings. That earned him a promotion to AA, where he had a 3.66 ERA and 1.94 FIP, with 34 strikeouts to 7 walks in 19.2 innings.

Altogether it made for 62 strikeouts in 32.1 innings, good for a stunning 17.3 Ks per 9 innings.

Now let’s keep this train moving.
