25. Chris Stratton
Chris Stratton hasn't quite panned out the way most people would have expected the 2012 first-round pick to thus far. His 2014 season, spent in San Jose and Richmond, culminated in a 4.80 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 122 innings. He's been in the Sacramento rotation since mid-2015, and has produced similar numbers. His advertised 93-95 mph fastball in college has turned into high-80s to low-90s, and his ability to spot it has benefited him. Scouts waver back and forth between calling Stratton a potential rotation or bullpen arm, but as of now, he remains in the starting role capable of throwing 90-plus pitches with ease.
26. C.J. Hinojosa
This University of Texas product may have been the most talked about position player in the Giants' organization during minor league spring training. He has lived up to the hype so far, leading the California League in batting average through the first 30 games with the San Jose Giants. C.J. Hinojosa wont impress you with raw power or quick bat speed, but rather good hand-eye, strong forearms, and the ability to go to all fields with his good extension. Defensively, Hinojosa has looked lackluster thus far at shortstop, averaging an error every fourth game or so, though I'm sure this bad stretch will prove to be a fluke.
27. Tyler Rogers
Tyler Rogers is not your average right-handed reliever. As the accompanying image demonstrates, Rogers is a submariner. And he's very good at it. The 25-year-old from Austin Peay State drops ridiculously low, making it difficult for right-handed hitters, though his splits aren't terribly lopsided. Opposing batters averaged just .220 off him in San Jose in 2014, with a .206 mark versus righties and .241 against lefties. Rogers, whose twin is in Minnesota's system, could reach Sacramento by the end of 2016, fueled by a 15.2 inning streak to begin the new year with a 0.00 ERA and near-one WHIP.
