Warning: players who appear in our live prospects listing, but are ranked near the very bottom of the list, may only appear in this position because their records have only become visible in the past few days and are still awaiting update. They may also only appear because they were once ranked higher and still technically qualify. As a side-effect of our automated processes, the end of the publicly-visible list also collects longshots, underdocumented signees, recently-retired players, foreign players unlikely to enter MLB, near-busts and other extreme dark-horse candidates. It does not mean that there are not 'better' prospects, only that better prospects in our system lack enough accurate data and/or scouting inputs to become visible at this time. Always read the detailed information and consult other sources before drawing conclusions about prospect viability, and never, ever, ever treat a 'ranking' alone as if it's meaningful.

Pitching prospect Brett Bochy might get a more wide-open opportunity from Bruce's team in San Francisco, but the tall, lanky righthander doesn't need nepotism to succeed. Bochy was a dominant closer at U Kansas before losing 2010 to TJ surgery, and he seems to be all-the-way back now. His fastball hums in the mid-90s with great natural movement, and his slider, which looked like his best pitch in college, now looks to have recovered its late break. A natural closer, Bochy is great under pressure, which means he might be the best internal bet to take over the Giants' ninth inning role sometime in the future.
