California League Top 20 Prospects With Scouting Reports
Pro scouts certainly know the way to San Jose. Not only did the Giants finish with 93 wins (one off the minor league lead) and sweep High Desert in the playoff finals, but they also landed four players on our Cal League Top 20 list. San Francisco has assembled one of the most talented systems in the game and it showed with catcher Buster Posey (the league's No. 1 prospect), lefthander Madison Bumgarner (who would have ranked ahead of Posey if he had enough innings to qualify) and a prospect-studded outfield of Thomas Neal, Roger Kieschnick and Darren Ford. Lefthander Craig Clark went 16-2, 2.86 and won the league's pitcher of the year award, but he didn't make the Top 20 because he's 25 and more of a finesse pitcher.
