Baggs: #SFGiants optioned OF Peguero and recalled hot-hitting 1B Brett Pill from Fresno. He’ll join the club in Toronto. Maybe serve as DH? — Andrew Baggarly (@CSNBaggs) May 13, 2013 In 137 plate appearances for Triple-A Fresno, Pill’s numbers are absolutely insane: .333 ISO, slash-line of .341/.380/.675, and a 165 wRC+. (That’s even good for the PCL, but adjusted to… Read more →
Gotta get them matchups. This defense is pretty bad, you guys.
OK, deep breath. /inhales Brett Pill. Chances are that Brett Pill isn’t, or will he ever be, a good major league baseball player. I’m using good somewhat subjectively here, but I think it’s a fine word for what Pill won’t be; good. However, that doesn’t mean that Brett Pill doesn’t necessarily have some sort of utility for the Giants. First,… Read more →
… aaaaaand shall we agree to never speak of Jeff Keppinger, again? I think so. Right now, all of Bay City Ball’s authors are preparing to hash out the prospect list for 2012. I’m very excited about this, especially as we now have a writer who actually watches a lot of minor league games. That should lead to an interesting… Read more →

Team Renteria updated the league page, saying that Play Ball! is scheduled for November 18. None of the rosters have been updated yet, but now we know when Opening Day is. I’ll… Read more →
I held off on doing an update in the middle of last week because two other leagues were starting up at the end of the week: the Nicaraguan League (NPBL) and the Colombian League. Turns out that nobody from the Giants is playing for either league right now. Oh well. Plus I waited for the big day of my entire… Read more →
Look ma, no walks!
Hey, all. I’m back with another prospect mailbag. This week has been god awful for those following the Giants. I moved into my new apartment not too long ago and I’m glad I don’t yet have cable hooked up because if I had to watch the Giants right now, I’d drive off the overpass. Instead we will discuss two young… Read more →
