Mid-Season Top 40 Prospects (36-40)

*Click on the player’s name to see his MiLB profile.

#36. Chris Marlowe – RHP, 23 yo, Hi-A: Throws the best curveball in the Giants’ system, but needs to lower his walk rate. After a hard luck season in Low A, he opened 2013 in San Jose with a 1.95 ERA through 7 starts before an injury. Currently on a rehab assignment.

#37. Tyler Mizenko – RHP, 23 yo, Lo-A: 28th round pick in ’12 has outperformed expectations by a wide margin so far, locking down 30 saves with a 1.26 ERA between S-K and Augusta. He’s allowed 2 ER through 32 innings this year!

#38. Ricky Oropesa – 1B, 23 yo, AA: Toolsy 3rd round pick in ’11 out of USC. Very good defender who needs to cut down the K’s and make more contact if he wants to be a big leaguer.

#39. Leonardo Fuentes – OF, 20 yo, AZL: Colombian born, big bodied (6-4, 215) outfielder signed in ’09.  Has not played above rookie ball, but he’s got loads of talent. Maybe he gets it going this summer?

#40. Chuckie Jones – OF, 20 yo, Lo-A: Taken in the 7th round of ’10 out of high school, Jones may be the biggest project in the system. But he’s built like Yasiel Puig, and if he ever puts all of his tools together, he could be special. I’m not counting on it.
