The Giants' young talents of Joey Bart and Heliot Ramos are more than enough to get us excited to see what the Orange and Black are going to do this season.
But until then, there are other young guys that are patiently waiting for their opportunities to make an impact with the big league club. And unfortunately, they will need to have a lot of patience.
Logan Webb, however, presents some positive news. He's taken quite the leap in MLB Pipeline's Top 30 prospect lists in the Giants' organization.
Last season, the right-handed pitcher wasn't even ranked on the list. Now? He sits at the No. 5 position.
Pipeline's Jim Callis writes:
"Webb put Tommy John surgery behind him by reaching 98 mph with his fastball and improving his power breaking ball."
Webb underwent the procedure mid-summer of 2016 when he was 19 and appears to be making very successful strides in his recovery.
The fourth-round pick of the 2014 MLB Draft played with the Giants' High-A affiliate in San Jose where he boasted a 1.82 ERA with 74 strikeouts in 74 innings.
As far as major falls go within the Giants' organization, those "honors" go to Tyler Beede. Last season he was ranked fourth; this season 24th.
"His control and confidence fell apart as he logged a 7.05 ERA in Triple-A and got regulated to the bullpen," Callis says of Beede.
Personally, I can say after recently seeing him at spring training, I don't think he's lacking confidence. And bullpens have been pretty successful (and lucrative) as of late.
Callis did compliment his changeup, however, giving he and fellow pitching prospect Shaun Anderson a 55 grade.
Nevertheless, that's a long fall.
