I enjoy writing about the Giants system. Why? Sure, several famous prospects are performing well like Marco Luciano and Luis Matos. However, it’s the young kids that few have heard about that gets me excited. Aeverson Arteaga and Kyle Harrison are two. Both have intriguing upside and have gotten little recognition. Few pitchers were better than Ryan Murphy in 2021, but we need to see him pitch in the upper minors to see if it’s real. Of course, some players have dropped for me and the most famous is Joey Bart. I think he’ll be a very good Major League catcher. However, his strikeout rate is problematic, and I worry that he’s going to be a 25 home run threat that hits .230, or a typical Major League catcher.
