  1. FYI Rich, your Giants 2016 Prospect link goes to SD’s 2016 list, not SF’s. I appreciate you being bold/honest and not following the trend of ranking Christian Arroyo #1 for 2017. I think your scouting report/assessment of Arroyo is very fair. Personally, I am in agreement with you on at least the top-5 here. #6-10 get somewhat complicated, depending upon what one favors for ranking systems: proximity to MLB, floor, ceiling, age-vs-level, position, bat, speed, defense, versatility, etc.

    I have enjoyed following prospect361 for a long time. Thanks for all the good takes and perspectives. Happy 2017. Cheers.

    • Thanks. Fixed. I didn’t realize everyone had him ranked at #1 until I read an article that linked to my list saying finally somebody didn’t rank him #1. I think he’s a nice player but kind of like an empty bat. He can hit but there is just not many secondary skills and I struggle with the overall value. But, again, that’s what everyone said about BCrawford. I’ve seen him play a number of time and they swing is geared for contact and not power.

      • I agree. I’ve followed prospect361 for quite a long time. The fact that your site often has rankings that vary compared to other sites is refreshing. I hope you don’t mind that I’ve linked to here on my SF Giants blog. Interestingly enough, I’ve used BCrawford as one player in my data set on A+/AA minor league comps for Arroyo:

        You don’t need to approve this comment. I’m not trying to promote, I don’t generate revenue from my site. I just wished to inform you. And let you know that I’ve long been a fan of prospect361. Thanks again for all you do.

      • Oh wow, that was your article. WOW…comprehensive and a good read. Thanks for the note and the heads up on the broken/wrong link. Argh…

  2. […] Arroyo is considered the #1 Giants prospect. [edit 12/30/2016: prospect361 is now up and has Arroyo #5. Personally, I completely agree with their top-5 SF Giants prospect rankings. […]
