#Giants SS Marco Luciano had a breakout performance in the AFL! The 20-year-old went 3-for-5, with 2 runs, 2 HR, and 4 RBI. The righty is hitting .278/.435/.611 with a 6:4 K:BB in 22 PA. A pattern of struggles, criticism, adjustments, and high-rankings continues. #ResilientSF
@SFGWill209 @sportslarryknbr Giants have marco luciano waiting in the wings and signed lastella to 3 years. The only such deal for Farhan. He isnt moving. You get duvall who can take bryants roll and put bryant at 3rd or alternate with duvall at third and of. If the got seager i wouldnt be mad though.
The Giants have some interesting decisions with free agents, and they are not exactly the youngest team in baseball by any means. But I do think they have a bright future ahead of them. Any team that has Marco Luciano in their system has a bright future ahead of them.
Last bit of optimism before saying goodbye to the 21 season: Giants have an ace & shutdown closer that will be 25 next season. They have arguably the best FO in baseball. Heliot Ramos, Marco Luciano and Joey Bart are waiting in the wings & they have a TON of money to spend on FA
What’s the outlook for my Giants in the future? We had 107 wins this year and have Marco Luciano, Joey Bart, Hunter Bishop & other studs coming through the system plus improving pitching under Farhan. I think we have to be considered an NL West & pennant contender #bleachertweets
thank god -- Logan Webb is great but the Dodgers are better. Looking forward to the Giants challenging these Dodgers on the downsides of their career in 2026 or 2027 with leaving in free agency Marco Luciano

Last night was Opening Night in the Arizona Fall League. Giants lines from Scottsdale Scorpions first game:
Marco Luciano SS, 1 for 4, 3 K
Patrick Bailey DH, 1 for 3, 2b (1), 2 K
Gregory Santos, 1.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K
Luis Matos named Low-A West Most Valuable Player today. Matos becomes the first ever San Jose Giant to win a league MVP award.
Kyle Harrison also honored as the Low-A West Pitcher of the Year.
Marco Luciano, Ryan Murphy & Randy Rodriguez all named postseason All-Stars as well.
The actual initial Giants AFL assignments:
Marco Luciano, SS; Hunter Bishop, OF; Patrick Bailey, C; Will Wilson, SS; Gregory Santos, RHP; R.J. Dabovich, RHP; Cole Waites, RHP.
I "got" 3 of the 7, but my predicted "upper levels" thesis was clearly wrong. https://t.co/Kd84OKteQl
Marco Luciano is the biggest name the Giants are sending to the Arizona Fall League, but it's most important for a former first-rounder who was Farhan Zaidi's first pick when he came to San Francisco https://t.co/UsxhqyVjgu
The Giants are sending pitchers R.J. Dabovich, Gregory Santos, and Cole Waites, catcher Patrick Bailey, infielders Marco Luciano and Will Wilson, and outfielder Hunter Bishop to the AFL https://t.co/wLLhCwpMYJ
Member of Giants org told me "I'd be excited" when AFL rosters came out. He was right! Led by top prospect and 3 1st rd picks, this may be most exciting group Giants have ever sent:
Fall league rosters are here! Really good group of 7 for the Giants:
Patrick Bailey, C
Hunter Bishop, OF
Marco Luciano, SS
Will Wilson, SS
Gregory Santos, P
Cole Waites, P (my guy)
RJ Dabovich, P
Excellent choices by the Giants in my opinion. https://t.co/wZNRSPjEFq
Giants prospects who will play for Scottsdale in the Arizona Fall League: pitchers R.J. Dabovich, Gregory Santos and Cole Waites, SS Marco Luciano, C Patrick Bailey, INF Will Wilson and OF Hunter Bishop.
The Giants are sending a handful of top prospects to the Arizona Fall League this year.
Marco Luciano, Patrick Bailey, Hunter Bishop, Will Wilson, RJ Dabovich, Cole Waites and Gregory Santos will all be on the Scottsdale Scorpions
#SFGiants in the Arizona Fall League: Giants (Scottsdale): Marco Luciano, SS (No. 1/MLB No. 5); Hunter Bishop, OF (No. 6); Patrick Bailey, C (No. 8); Will Wilson, SS (No. 15); Gregory Santos, RHP (No. 24); R.J. Dabovich, RHP; Cole Waites, RHP
@Big11R @Padres I completely respect that. I felt the same way when Giants brought up Crawford and Belt to join Posey in 2011. Very exciting players. I also here Giants have a top prospect Marco Luciano (SS), he is in high A now but he looks very promising. Cheers man, good luck Giants!
Giants prospects Marco Luciano (2), Luis Matos (6) and Kyle Harrison (10) all made @BaseballAmerica's Top 10 Low-A West prospect rankings @SJGiants
The top spot went to A's catching prospect Tyler Soderstrom https://t.co/MyRe1c2xnF
Marco Luciano, the Giants top prospect, likely would have won the award if he had stayed with San Jose all season long (like Matos did). He posted elite power & abv avg BB-rates with SJ. The > month-long slump at the plate he suffered with Eugene knocked him at of the running.
Was out of commission tonight, but both the @SJGiants and @EugeneEmeralds won championships.
Grant McCray and Luis Matos homered for San Jose, Marco Luciano homered for Eugene and Ryan Murphy struck out 7 over 5 scoreless innings. Big night for two Giants affiliates
OF Ismael Munguia, who has quietly had a very good year, went 5-for-6 for Eugene and C Ricardo Genoves hit two home runs. Top prospect Marco Luciano went 3-for-5, 2B, 3B, 2 R, 1 RBI.
Top pitching prospect Kyle Harrison went 6.2 IP, 4 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 6 K for San Jose. https://t.co/jpbjJIL6EI
Glenn Albanese (@GlennAlbanese) continues to dominate. Tonight’s line:
2.2 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K
First strikeout was Card on Card crime with Tyler Fitzgerald. Second strikeout was Giants number one prospect, Marco Luciano. Albanese lowers ERA to 2.35.
In @BaseballAmerica's latest Top 100, Marco Luciano dropped to No. 9. Joey Bart is No. 39, Luis Matos is up to No. 45, Heliot Ramos is No. 72 and Kyle Harrison is at No. 84
The Giants have 5 top-100 prospects https://t.co/0S9fweB5H5
SS Marco Luciano was the first overall pick in the LIDOM (Dominican Winter League) draft, selected by Estrellas Orientales.
Felix Peguero, Giants Assistant Director of D.R. Operations, is the General Manager for Estrellas. https://t.co/yV8QxmHo58
In this week's hitters' recap, Heliot has settled in on AAA, Will Wilson finding success with his old approach, Marco Luciano only taking 9 games to finally pop off in High-A, Patrick Bailey getting hot at the best time, and more!
A number of high-profile 19-year-old international prospects are at High-A, too.
Marco Luciano, SS, Giants
Francisco Alvarez, C, Mets
Orelvis Martinez, SS, Blue Jays
Jhonkensy Noel, 3B, Indians
Ezequiel Tovar, SS, Rockies
Yohendrick Pinango, OF, Cubs
@NorthWestJT @CardPurchaser Eh the main ones I’m trying to collect right now are Joey Bart, Marco Luciano, Helios Ramos, Luis Matos but honestly open to different Giants ie: Posey, Bonds, MadBum, Lincecums, or who ever else you got
@MLBPipeline @MLB @OsPlayerDev @MsPlayerDev @RoyalsPD @RoadtoDetroit @TEXPlayerDev @BrewersPD @CardsPlayerDev @DodgerPlayerDev @MetsFarmReport @NYYPlayerDev marco luciano, joey bart, heliot ramos, hunter bishop, and more so the giants do
Talked Marco Luciano, Heliot Ramos, Sammy Long, Kervin Castro and more Giants this morning with Greg Papa and @JohnLundRadio on @KNBR.
Oh, and Papa tried to end my marriage after three weeks https://t.co/Jtn3JPC9np
Marco Luciano already has made big strides in High-A with the @EugeneEmeralds after a tough first week.
That and more in my latest Giants minor league review https://t.co/489belPKLi https://t.co/OcL5oOIeeT
After a slow start, Marco Luciano is heating up in High-A with the @EugeneEmeralds.
@DaltonJ_Johnson breaks it all down in his latest Giants minor league review https://t.co/X28PlaMute https://t.co/FkVLPaQ3w9
Marco Luciano heats up for the @EugeneEmeralds, Grant McCray says hello to the @SJGiants with a bang and Heliot Ramos is figuring it out for the @RiverCats.
Here's this week's Giants minor league review https://t.co/XpdduO4ev3
Since mlb pipeline just dropped their near top 30 prospects for each team here’s mine for the giants:
1: Marco Luciano 19 year old SS
2: Luis Matos 19 year old OF
3: Joey Bart 23 year old C
4: Heliot Ramos 21 year old OF
5: Jairo Pomares 21 year old OF
6: Kyle Harrison 20 year
Sean Hjelle's start with the @RiverCats, how Marco Luciano has looked with the @EugeneEmeralds and the @SJGiants' dominant duo of Luis Matos and Jairo Pomares.
My Giants minor league review is back https://t.co/UDP2KCIG4T
@G_Webs_Since_93 @LuisUrias03 I’m a huge fan of the Sox. Are Eloy Jimenez and Luis Roberts cards hard to find? Also there is a short stop on the Giants I like, who hasn’t been called up yet named Marco Luciano? Are these hard cards to get or are they worth anything. I’d buying a box of cards the best way?
Giants prospects rankings by WiliBednar
1: Marco Luciano SS 19 years old

3: Joey Bart C 24 years old
4: Heliot Ramos OF 21 years old
5: Jairo Pomares OF 20 years old
6: Will Bednar RHP 21 years old
7: Kyle Harrison LHP 19 years old https://t.co/SLtwDRWauM
@SFGiants Crawford for 2 more years, then Marco Luciano. This seems to work very nicely. Crawford might have been the best option even if he wasn't on the Giants already. Very good but older and looking for a shorter contract on a contender. Luciano is worth 1st look, very high potential.
I got to see #SFGiants top prospect Marco Luciano's first four games live in action for the @EugeneEmeralds last week.
Some background on the 19-year-old phenom (younger than me, yikes) and some initial impressions:
Latest Baseball America Top 100 shows four #Padres prospects (Abrams, Campusano, Hassell, Gore). #Dodgers, also four (none in top 50).
#Giants? Five led by SS Marco Luciano at No. 6, one spot before Abrams. SF has made huge strides, in both majors and minors.
The Emeralds are facing 2021 first-round pick Sam Bachman tonight.
His first pro batter faced was none other than Giants top prospect Marco Luciano. Luciano hit a bullet, but the shortstop made a fantastic play to get the out.
@TCSFGFAN @Mike__McKenna I am hoping that all of this positive activity by the minor league Giants will mean a bright future for the major league squad!

#Giants SS Marco Luciano hitting his 1st home run in High-A! Of course it's some unheard of 49 degree launch angle to the opposite field. The righty did strike out 4 times as well, so the adjustment period is still unfolding. Luciano is one of my favorite prospects. #ResilientSF https://t.co/g1sqAmGaw5
Eugene baseball fans, this is worth coming out for. Luciano is one of the top prospects in all of baseball: massive power! #GoEms #SFGiants #MiLB
"Top Giants Prospect Marco Luciano Joins Emeralds Roster" https://t.co/ARFlhHg3Hq via @MiLB
🥳#Giants SS Marco Luciano has been promoted to High-A!! The 19-year old hit .278/.373/.556 with 18 HR and 5 SB in Lo-A. The righty possesses a plus hit tool and plus-plus raw power. Should be a solid challenge for the top prospect to close out his successful 2021. #ResilientSF
Giants top prospect SS Marco Luciano has been promoted to High-A Eugene
19-year-old future star hit .278/.373/.556 with 18 HR + 5 SB for Low-A San Jose
An electrifying offensive prospect, Luciano possesses thunderous power that produces elite exit velos
#Giants have promoted SS Marco Luciano to High A Eugene.
Luciano is batting .278/.373/.556 with 18 Home runs 57 RBIs 5 stolen bases in 70 games.

Feels like Giants have the Player of the Week at either Low-A or High-A just about every week. Luis Matos is fourth San Jose Giants hitter to win it this year, joining Marco Luciano, Casey Schmitt, Jairo Pomares. Matos, who is just 19, is batting .325 for SJ.
@SJGiants went to my first Giants game. It was a great game! So fun! However, Marco Luciano is a turd. My son and nephew waited for him after the game and asked him for his autograph. Dude didn’t even look at them. He isn’t even famous yet and he completely ignored his fans
@PavlovicNBCS Chicago will receive pitcher Caleb Kilian and outfielder Alex Canario from San Francisco, which managed to land Bryant without sacrificing any of its top prospects, such as shortstop Marco Luciano or outfielders Luis Matos and Heliot Ramos
@MilcoxS @PavlovicNBCS Chicago will receive pitcher Caleb Kilian and outfielder Alex Canario from San Francisco, which managed to land Bryant without sacrificing any of its top prospects, such as shortstop Marco Luciano or outfielders Luis Matos and Heliot Ramos

I'm hearing that Marco Luciano, Luis Matos, and Luis Toribio are NOT in the San Jose lineup this afternoon. Mostly because the game is being played in the evening. It's fireworks night there. Grab the family and go, should be fun.
@TravisChevet @erikdots @papayazseason @Ken_Rosenthal Yeah but teams are asking for those guys replacements aka Joey Bart, Marco Luciano, bishop, Ramos. No way giants going to Gut their farm when those guys you mentioned are coming to the end of their careers
@StickyMickey8 @talbert_jazz @MarkZuckerman Ya im a Giants fan and I'm shocked yall got rid of ruiz and happy we dont have to deal with him or gray! Kinda happy we kept our future. I won't be mad of we go out and deal 1 or 2 prospects for a Kris Bryant. But definitely not Marco Luciano lol. That kid gunna be special
Trading flaherty to the giants for a package based around Marco Luciano and/or Joey Bart and then signing Thor and Carlos rodon is such a galaxy brain move I know Mo could never even conceive such intelligence
@rxmeister55 @Shadow2actual @GrantBrisbee OK. You're totally right. He is a great addition, despite the fact that he has never played anywhere in the Majors other than SS and the Giants have SS covered - Crawford and Thairo Estrada on the ML roster, and Marco Luciano waiting in the wings in two years.
🚀 #Giants SS Marco Luciano blasting a towering home run! The 19-year old is hitting .286/.378/.565 with 17 HR and 52 RBI in Lo-A. The righty will begin 2022 in High-A, with a likely promotion to AA by mid-season. Luciano has 4-category monster written all over him. #ResilientSF https://t.co/bmuXucTim6
@CQT_SOX @RickHahnFanClub For instance with the Giants the deal would start with Marco Luciano for Turner. For Max alone it would be something like Joey Bart straight up or from the Dodgers Jo Jo Gray.
Day baseball in the South Bay as the #SJGiants look for a fourth straight win.
Marco Luciano is back in the lineup after missing the last three games. Wil Jensen on the mound.

@dodgers_jacob @K_MMcConnell @JonHeyman @susanslusser I’m not saying I’m super up to date on Dodgers prospects, but as far as position players go, Giants ranked 2 in the MLB in their prospects. Rays #1. And Bart isn’t even our #1 prospect. Go check out Marco Luciano. Experts predict he’ll be a top 3 prospect in all of MLB next year
