5. Bryan Reynolds
The Giants began to stockpile outfielders in the 2016 draft, grabbing three in their first five picks. It all began with 59th overall Bryan Reynolds from Vanderbilt, who switch hits and plays all outfield spots. Touted as a four-tool player, Reynolds has raw power from both sides as well as a reputation for being disciplined at the plate. His above-average defense could keep him in center for most of his minor league time, but of course that means the corners are where he could eventually break into the majors. Reynolds displayed power in a noteworthy debut, posting impressive stats like a .313 average, .171 ISO slugging, and .389 wOBA in time between Salem-Keizer (171 PA) and Augusta (66 PA). Reynolds is unique in that his stance and leg lift are ever-changing, depending on what feels good that day.
6. Heath Quinn
The Giants wasted no time stocking up on more outfield talent beyond Bryan Reynolds, taking Samford University's Heath Quinn in the third round, 105th overall. Quinn didn't last in the Arizona League long, being sent to Salem-Keizer after just two games like most polished college hitters of his stature. How's a .461 wOBA in the Northwest League combined with a .234 ISO? Quinn was a beast. He shows a balanced approach at the plate, using both sides of the field while remaining patient in the box, as well. His speed on the base paths is average, which is just fine. He displays well above-average skills in terms of arm strength and accuracy from the corner outfield. A good comp would be Mac Williamson with more consistent contact but slightly less raw power.
7. Steven Duggar
The emergence of Steven Duggar, as well as the drafting of three outfielders in their top five picks in 2016, has the Giants' farm of outfielders suddenly going from desolate to thriving. Duggar skipped Augusta, much like Austin Slater, and joined San Jose for the 2016 season where he displayed above-average contact, power, and plate discipline. Midway through the year, Duggar led the entire farm in walks, was tied for the most triples, and was in the top-10 in wOBA and wRC+. Duggar is known for his plus speed, both offensively and defensively, but hasn't utilized it on the base paths as a pro. Duggar, along with Chris Shaw and C.J. Hinojosa, were all promoted to Double-A on the same day (June 29). A nagging injury has prevented him from possibly making his major-league debut in 2017.
8. Heliot Ramos
It's safe to say Heliot Ramos is the most exciting player drafted by the Giants in nearly a decade. The Puerto Rican center fielder instantly becomes the only true five-tool player in the system, with his incredible speed, explosive hands, and plus raw power being the three most prominent attributes making him capable of achieving five tools. Ramos was the top high-schooler in Puerto Rico when the Giants took him 18th overall in 2017, and after he signed for 3.1 million, he racked up five doubles, two triples, and two home runs in his first eight AZL contests. How fast Ramos darts through the Giants' farm will depend on his ability to groove a consistent swing, as scouts see this as the biggest downside to his game. Otherwise, it's possible he has the highest ceiling of any San Francisco prospect.
