A glance at how San Francisco Giants’ top draft picks are doing

With the 2013 season quickly going nowhere, MoreSplashHits thought it was time to look to the future.

So we thought we’d take a quick look at how the top 20 players drafted by the Giants in the June draft were doing this season.

One thing to note — and I don’t know if this is a point of stress for the Giants (and if it is, good!) — but a lot of these young hitters appear to be showing signs of good patience at the plate

Second-round pick Ryder Jones has an OBP of almost .500. CF Johneshwy Fargas has an OBP of .417. SS Brett Kay has an OBP of .458.

These are small samples. And it also should be noted that almost three-quarters of the Giants’ rookie league roster is batting above .300. But it’s encouraging all the same.

Here are the numbers through Thursday (ages in parenthesis):
