29. Miguel Gomez
No question the breakout prospect of the year for the Giants, switch-hitting corner infielder/catcher Miguel Gomez has been a hitting machine since he was signed by San Francisco back in 2011. Aside from a rough 2012 season in the Dominican Summer League, Gomez has hit over .300 each season since, producing more power from the left side while compiling a slightly higher average from the right side. Sound familiar? Gomez hasn't played catcher at all in 2016 and has instead flopped between first and third base. Gomez works with a compact stroke and uses all parts of the field, and best of all, he rarely strikes out. He has a career strikeout rate of 12.2 percent, but is even lower at 8.2 in 2016.
30. Caleb Smith
One of the more unknown prospects in the system is left-hander Caleb Smith. Drafted in the 17th round in 2014, Smith began the season in Augusta — just 30 minutes outside his hometown of Aiken, S.C. Heading towards the end of July, Smith still holds a FIP below 2.00 and has continued to produce incredible strikeout totals. His career mark of 13.4 strikeouts per nine innings has only been increased in 2016. Since debuting in 2014, opposing hitters have recorded only 44 hits off Smith in 70.2 innings, including just one home run. Smith is a mid-to-upper 90s guy who uses a plus-potential slider to counter the fastball.

31. Ian Gardeck
Ian Gardeck is one of the most recent of the Giants' Tommy John surgery victims. He'll miss all of the 2016 season after really breaking out a year ago with San Jose. He struck out 104 in 86 innings while hurling 100 mile per hour heaters at California League hitters. The need to reach back for every pitch has pushed Gardeck to display a lack of command, much like Ray Black. Gardeck is a two-pitch guy, utilizing a mid-80s slider to keep batters off balance. Here's to hoping his recovery is going smoothly and brings him back healthy for 2017.

32. 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.
