The 24th chapter of the 2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List was a close one — a very close one. But in the end, we had a winner: infielder Casey Schmitt, who has been voted as the No. 24 prospect in the San Francisco Giants organization by the McCovey Chronicles community.

Schmitt was a second-round pick in the 2020 MLB Draft, and was a two-way player at the time, though the Giants have thus far developed him exclusively as a position player. His debut season got off to a rough start, as he hit just .121/.192/.273 in May for Low-A San Jose. But then he got acclimated and caught fire, hitting .318/.375/.591 in June.

His overall line for the season — .247/.318/.406, 91 wRC+ — isn’t inspiring, but his peripherals look nice, and his defense is widely viewed as the best on the farm.

Now onward we march...
