The Giants included their top three prospects in their player pool: SS Marco Luciano (No. 1), C Joey Bart (No. 2) and OF Heliot Ramos (No. 3). Bart's and Ramos' inclusions are not surprising after they finished last season at Double-A, but Luciano's is notable because he is 18 years old and has yet to reach full-season ball. INF Mauricio Dubon (No. 10 prospect) and RHP Logan Webb (No. 11) were included as members of the Giants 40-man roster.
OF Hunter Bishop, the Giants first-round pick a year ago, tested positive for COVID-19 last week, according to Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic. He is the Giants No. 4 prospect. OFs Alexander Canario (No. 5) and Luis Matos (No. 8) and 3B Luis Toribio (No. 6) have yet to reach full-season ball have yet to reach full-season ball and were also not included. LHP Seth Corry (No. 7) and RHP Sean Hjelle (No. 9) are slightly surprising omissions given their full-season excellence a year ago. The Giants still have nine open spots, however, and could add them and others at a later date.
The Giants put a lot of non-roster, veteran depth types on their initial player pool, building a roster more like a team that thinks it can compete rather than a rebuilding club. Bart and Ramos are candidates to make their debuts this year, but otherwise there isn't much prospect depth available to inject youth into an older, declining roster.
