These are my Prospect One top 10 prospects for the San Francisco Giants organization. You can find all teams orginzational ranks, which go beyond the top 10, plus my top 500 prospect ranks which are updated monthly when you join up at the ITL ARMY. Find the link below.
Check out the NL West Top 10 Team Prospects podcast when Scott Bogman interviews me on my thoughts on these players plus a look beyond the top 10 for some teams.

1) Heliot Ramos OF
Ramos dominated the AZL in ‘17. Many have comped him to Yoenis Cespedes, and I was surprised how much I got that vibe when seeing him live. Similar bat angle they share, with bat speed for days. Ramos’ power was a topic of conversation around the AZL, but one thing not many spoke of, was his athletic ability and stolen bases. He can get a little long when he’s off on a pitch, which could hurt his AVG in the future, but he is as advertised, and I am all in.

2) Chris Shaw OF/1B
Shaw was at the AFL, but didn’t play too much as he has transitioned to a LF from 1B due to Brandon Belt. I’d be surprised if Shaw hit for a high AVG, or even above .270, but he is going to hit your home runs. There is no speed to speak of, he strikes out a lot and doesn’t walk, so he is limited beyond HR, RBI and R. If it all clicks, he could be a middle of the order bat. Adam Duvall comes to mind.
3) Bryan Reynolds OF
Reynolds does things well, but not are great. He has a solid swing that will generate some doubles power. It’s in question if he will hit for 20+ HR power in the majors, and if he can maintain his AVG, but he’s got the chance to give you low end value across the board. If he builds on ‘17, he might be a fantasy sleeper.
4) Tyler Beede SP
Beede spent some time in the AFL with Shaw, and like his ‘17 season, the results were mixed. He’s got the pitches to stay as a starter, I’m just not sure more than one are above average. Mid 90’s FB, cutter, changeup and curve, but his command can get wild, and he doesn’t strikeout a ton of guys out. He has more name value then I think he might be worth, but he’s going to get an opportunity, and it should be soon.
5) Jacob Gonzalez 3B
Luis Gonzalez’s show shared the field with Ramos in the AZL in ‘17. Gonzalez started the season off crushing the ball. He never showed a ton in the power department, but he made consistent contact, showed future power and was much faster in person. He could stick at 3B, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he moves to a corner outfield spot. I trust his ability to hit is going to translate into some useful power, and I would get in early on him.
