2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List No. 28

Who is the 28th-best prospect on the Giants farm?

Baseball - World Series - Giants vs. Yankees

The 27th chapter of the 2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List saw the fourth catcher come off the board, as the McCovey Chronicles community voted Adrian Sugastey the No. 27 prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization. Sugastey follows Joey Bart (No. 2), Patrick Bailey (No. 9), and Ricardo Genovés (No. 20). Add in Brett Auerbach, who will surely get selected at some point, and there should be five catchers on the CPL when all is said and done.

Sugastey, a 2019 international signee, had an eye-opening debut season playing rookie ball in the Arizona Complex League. He showed great bat-to-ball skills in hitting .358/.405/.439, good for a 126 wRC+. That was enough to get the right-handed hitter, who didn’t turn 19 until after the season ended, on the CPL for the first time, after finishing a vote shy of squeaking onto last year’s list.

Now we move on and, at the request of the community, we’re pivoting back to doing votes in the comments. I’ll leave all the names in the comments and you can recommend the comment with the player you would like to vote for. Just press the “rec” button.
