Some #SFGiants round three through ten draftees through the years

Day Two gets going in a little less than two hours, with the preview show on MLB.com scheduled to get going at 9:30 AM PST. Earlier in the week I presented info on Round 1 and 2 draft picks since the year 2000, 2014’s draft picks thus far, and the best available according to different outlets. The Giants have eight picks today with their rounds three through ten selections, so I wanted to also take a look at some names you may be familiar with, as well as the names that have been picked in the respective rounds recently.

Davey Lopes was drafted, but not signed by the Giants. Dodgers would get him in the 2nd round a year later. Hensley was an 8th rounder, I see.

~21 rWAR is going to be tough to top. To give you an idea of the sustained dominance a reliever would have to have, in Craig Kimbrel’s five years of embarrassing hitters, he’s put up about 10 rWAR, and that’s Craig Kimbrel. If the Giants get seven or so good years out of Derek Law, I don’t think anyone would complain.

Short list with plenty of unfamiliar names. That’s what happens when you get further into the draft.
