2022 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List No. 43

Who is the 43rd-best prospect on the Giants farm?

San Francisco Giants

We’re so very close to finishing our community ranking of the top 44 prospects in the San Francisco Giants organization. Coming in at No. 42 in the rankings is the 20th pitcher on the list, and the fourth player from the 2021 draft class: right-hander Mason Black.

Black, who turned 22 in December, was the Giants third-round pick in July. He’s yet to make his professional debut, but in his final year at Lehigh in 2021 he posted a 3.11 ERA and a 1.313 WHIP, with 95 strikeouts to 31 walks in 72.1 innings.

He’s worth keeping an eye on as he makes his professional debut in 2022.

Now we must add the penultimate name to the list, so head to the comments and rec the name of the player you wish to vote for.
