Community Prospect List No. 20

10 hours 45 min ago

A lack of Minor League Baseball in 2020 hurt pretty much every baseball prospect, but you could certainly make a case that it hurt 2019 draft picks the most, as they were preparing for their first full season of professional baseball. So it’s fair to wonder where a player like first baseman Logan Wyatt — the San Francisco Giants second-round pick in 2019 — would land on the 2021 Willie McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List in a more normal year with more normal development.

New Giants starter Alex Wood fits their needs and speaks their language

Tue, 2021-01-19 16:57

Alex Wood knew he was a good fit with the Giants dating back to last winter when he chose to sign with the Dodgers because he figured it was the best path to a World Series ring. He was right. This year, the World Series champ preferred a home in a rotation, which the Giants - and not the pitching-deep Dodgers - could provide.

Giants' Alex Wood finally flips sides in rivalry after avoiding 'smarter decision' to join Dodgers in 2020

Tue, 2021-01-19 14:23

It all worked out for Wood, who tossed four shutout innings in the 2020 World Series en route to earning a ring, but as he looked back on decision Tuesday, he realized he took quite a gamble. On a personal and individual level, it was a decision as far as setting myself up to make more money and things like that, the smarter decision would have been for me to go and be able to post every fifth day for sure in San Francisco,” Wood said.

Tue, 2021-01-19 08:15

After a year off to take care of twin daughters his family adopted last summer, Posey is returning to uncertainty for the first time in his career. "It's kind of appropriate for the time, I guess. It's the way it's felt for everyone for a year now," Posey said over the phone last week.

Giants have fielded calls on Joey Bart, but aren't shopping him

Tue, 2021-01-19 05:02

But Rosenthal noted that while Bart’s name has come up, the Giants are not actively shopping him. The Giants, like most clubs, are open to virtually all trade possibilities, and some in the industry speculate that Bart could bring them a controllable starting pitcher in return. But while Bart’s name is surfacing in discussions – the Indians mentioned him when the Giants inquired about Francisco Lindor, and the losers of the J.T. Realmuto sweepstakes are among the others that might have interest ...

In a statement released by the Giants, Johnson said he and his wife, Ann, also will request refunds from others who “engaged in similar behavior.

Community Prospect List No. 19

Mon, 2021-01-18 15:03

So far the 2021 Wille McCovey Memorial Community Prospect List has pretty closely mirrored the 2020 list, which makes sense given the lack of Minor League Baseball least season. With 18 San Francisco Giants prospects ranked, five players have already appeared in the same spot where they were ranked last season, with another seven players within a single spot of where they clocked in a year ago.

GM Scott Harris' scouting report on Giants' 7 newcomers added to 40-man roster

Mon, 2021-01-18 04:00

Here’s general manager Scott Harris’ scouting report, from his appearance on The Chronicle’s Giants Splash podcast, on the seven newcomers: Starting pitcher Anthony DeSclafani (free agent, $6 million): “The first thing you notice about Anthony is he has a big arm, which should give us three starters with DeSclafani, Gausman and (Tyler) Beede, when he’s back, who can touch the upper 90s with their four-seam fastballs. I think that’ll create some margin for error.

Here's how to fix the San Francisco Giants

Sun, 2021-01-17 09:00

Even with the Wood signing, the Giants are thin on rotation depth and should keep looking to upgrade. Add a left-handed outfielder Right-handed pitchers gave the Giants fits last year, and Zaidi has gone on record saying the team was short a left-handed bat all season.
