Its no secret that the Giants have some of the best young talent in the game.  But with virtually every position – besides, say, left field – all but guaranteed to current players over the next few seasons, where does that leave the club’s minor leaguers?

Well, they’re there.  But some of them might find their way onto the big league roster relatively soon.

Players such as:

OF – Gary Brown

SS – Joe Panik

C – Andrew Susac

SP – Chris Stratton

SP – Chris Heston

CL – Heath Hembree

There are other players in the minors, however, who do have some big league experience, as Francisco Peguero, Eric Surkamp, and Dan Runzler represent a few of the immediate options the team has should they need a major league ready arm and or bat, as second baseman Nick Noonan has recently been promoted and is on the twenty five man roster, albeit in a utility role.

Its taken a few years for them to develop, but this next class of minor leaguers looks very promising.
