Giants win Game 1 of the Championship Series 3-1!
Kyle Harrison, Randy Rodriguez & Cole Waites combined on a four-hitter while Luis Toribio smacked a key RBI double & a solo home run.
Read the recap + watch the highlights here: https://t.co/pIyRxPrtSy
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
Toribio leads off the Giants 7th inning with a towering HR to CF on the first pitch he saw. Now 3-1 for the Giants & Kyle Harrison is cruising. Giants can go to their dominant pen at any time now if Harrison shows any weakness.
#SJGiants set for Game 1 of the Low-A West Championship Series against Fresno.
A half-game separated Fresno (74-41) and SJ (76-44) during the regular season. Kyle Harrison makes the start tonight.
Pregame at 6:20. First pitch 6:50. Listen here: https://t.co/0IAZOc5QiJ
As I guessed last week, the Giants skipped Kyle Harrison's last scheduled start of the regular season (on Sunday) so that he could start Game 1 of the Low-A West championship tonight - & possibly come back to start Game 5 (if needed). He's been dominant during the last 6 weeks. https://t.co/QLlmmtEzqa
Kyle Harrison maybe the next superstar Giants pitcher. Harrison has dominated Low A all year putting up video game numbers. Harrison has a 3.19 ERA 14.32 K/9 11.8% BB% 35.7% K% 73.9% LOB% 3.50 FIP. A bump to high A would of been nice but Harrison looks very promising.

And don't forget to check out this week's There R Giants pod. Casey Schmitt is grateful to be able to go to the field every day and Kyle Harrison is searching for that spring feeling. All this and more!
New ep of Giants Prospects is out, recapping Wednesday's games. Looked at outings from Kyle Harrison and Kai-Wei Teng, a couple of scary HBP, and more.
Apple Podcasts: https://t.co/XBHYfhndNk
@extrabaggs At least one of the under slot guys from the 2020 draft that allowed Giants to sign Kyle Harrison, Casey Schmitt, is looking like a real keeper. Bat has come alive in SJ and he is a plus plus defender at 3B.
Strategy may be working.
#SJGiants in search of a fifth consecutive win as they continue their series against Inland Empire. Kyle Harrison makes the start tonight.

Means the Giants can now offer high school RHP Eric Silva up to $1.524.71M w/out paying a significant penalty. They paid Kyle Harrison $2.5M last year. IMO, Silva's a lock to sign, Baldwin's signing odds are ~50/50, & Honeycutt's signing odds are ~1%.
@Schreibee @DHS19921 @_TOYPAJ_ @baseballmarty @susanslusser Calling Miami for what? Cubs don’t have a need for Bart and I can promise you don’t value him as much as Giants do. I’ll go off the board. Give me Luis Matos and Kyle Harrison.
@RoundTheFoghorn @maddelucchi From the Giants perspective I’d do this in a heartbeat. But do you think the Cubs would do this? I think they’re gonna aim higher. They’re gonna want a Matos or a Kyle Harrison.
@WilIBednar Kyle Harrison stuck out to me at first, but I doubt the Giants would move him especially at this stage. Nick Swiney has a projectable frame with room to grow while the Cubs have the patience to develop him, so I'd venture to say maybe something like him and Hjelle?
#Giants lefty Kyle Harrison has whiffed 87 hitters in 56.1 innings this year. For context, 56.1 innings is 169 outs.
87/169 works out to a strikeout percentage of 51.5. In other words, he's been pretty damn good.
My Updated giants top 30 prospects post draft:
1: Marco Luciano
2: Heliot Ramos
3: Joey Bart
4: Luis Matos
5: Hunter Bishop
6: Kyle Harrison
7: Will Bednar
8: Patrick Bailey
9: Jairo Pomares
10: Will Wilson
11: Matt Mikulski
12: Luis Toribio
13: Alexander Canario
@tim815 Kris Bryant to SFG for Kyle Harrison (45+ LHP) and Casey Schmitt (40+ 3B.) Giants’ current #8 and #16. San Francisco has a TON of expiring contracts and a pretty good farm, so I think they’ll be willing to sacrifice *some* prospect depth to max out a surprisingly good season.
My New Top-10 San Francisco Dynasty Prospects
1. Marco Luciano, SS
2. Luis Matos, OF
3. Heliot Ramos, OF
4. Hunter Bishop, OF

The @SJGiants go for their 5th win vs The Nuts tonight. SJ offense has put up 46 runs in the series.
LHP Kyle Harrison starts, coming off a career long 7 inn. outing last week. He has struck out 44 in his last 6 games.
First pitch 6:05, pregame 5:50 🎧⬇️
Last year, the underslot mentality was paid off with the pick of Kyle Harrison, but it’s not clear that the Giants did the same with their only Day 2 HS pick Eric Silva. Silva isn’t coming with the same scouting superlatives as others, and some reports think he’s a reliever.
My Top 10 giants pitching prospects:
1: Kyle Harrison
2: Will Bednar
3: Matt Mikulski
4: Caleb Kilian
5: Seth Corry
6: Sean Hjelle
7: Kai-Wei Teng
8: Eric Silva
9: Carson Ragsdale
10: Nick Swiney
Hm: Tristian Beck and Seth Lonsway
10/12 brought in by Zaidi.
Giants splurge the savings on Eric Silva, the HS RHP from Orange County, Calif. Not as highly-ranked as Kyle Harrison was, but the Giants obviously see him as similar to Harrison's upside. UCLA commit (like Harrison), but not likely to command a $2.5M bonus.
As with last year's Draft, after 2 rounds I wonder when & how the Giants are planning to spend all the $$$ they've saved under slot. Last yr the answer was $2.5M for Kyle Harrison at #85 (which was ~$1.8M over slot). Do they have a hi-upside HS guy in their pocket for Round 4/5?

Pregame at 4:45 with me & @JustinAllegri. Watch on MiLB TV or listen here: https://t.co/0IAZOc5QiJ
I’ve been really looking into farm systems for teams that would be matches for the Bucs, and the Giants stand out for so many reasons.
Bailey, Toribio, Corry, Wilson, Beck, Canario, Swiney, Pomares, Hjelle, Mercedes are all guys I really like.

The San Francisco Giants!
These guys have been hot in recent MLB Drafts. Patrick Bailey, Nick Swiney and Kyle Harrison were bombshell picks in 2020. Add in batted-ball monsters Joey Bart and Hunter Bishop... they have a type. What will 2021 bring?
@AramLeighton8 Those Giants write ups are so exciting! I’ve been following the Luciano/Matos/Pomares trio since I got back into following the team in 2019 and the future looks really bright!
*Also quick correction for you: Kyle Harrison was a 2020 3rd rounder! You put him in as 2019.
