Like Max Scherzer, Tim Bascom and Luke Hochevar before him, Jason Jarvis headed to independent baseball with the hopes that it would raise his draft stock.
But the former Arizona State righthander’s gambit didn’t work out as well, as the San Francisco Giants selected Jarvis in the 23rd round. The former Sun Devils closer had gone 0-1, 1.64 in 11 innings with the Saltdogs. He has shown off a new changeup he had picked up to go with his fastball this sits in the mid-90s at times.
According to Jarvis’ agent Oscar Suarez, the Giants haven’t scouted Jarvis since he signed with Lincoln, but they do have a connection to him, as Giants scout Chuck Hensley used to be the righthander’s advisor.
"I think what’s fair is for the Giants to go in and sit on him for a week and make their own evaluation. The question that they have to ask is, ‘Will this kid pitch in the big leagues?’ Once that gets answered, then be fair about the offer. If the Giants come in and make a good evaluation on him, then we’ll negotiate and offer that makes good sense," Suarez said.
