2/24 Blake Swihart Boston
Scouting grades: Hit: 60 | Power: 50 | Run: 45 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60 | Overall: 60
Swihart is a rare commodity of a great defender and a great hitting catcher. There are very few, if any that fall into the same category as Swihart. To support his case, he nailed 47% of runners attempting to steal last season. At the plate, he shows great pitch recognition and has pop from both sides of the dish. His aggressiveness at the plate can get him into trouble especially against polished pitchers but ultimately he will hit for a high average with a little power.

10 Andrew Susac San Francisco
Andrew Susac
Scouting grades: Hit: 45 | Power: 50 | Run: 30 | Arm: 55 | Field: 55 | Overall: 50
Susac is one of the top backstops in all of baseball, he ranks int he top 10 overall (LIST). He made his MLB debut during the Giants World Series run in 2014. The Sacramento native will begin the 2015 campaign at home with the new Triple-A affiliate, Sacramento River Cats. His at-bats were limited during spring training because of an injury and by starting him in Triple-A he should receive plenty of abs. The Giants fully expect to see Susac in SF during the season. Known more for his defensive prowess, Susac offers a lightning fast pop-time (from catching the ball to hitting the second the baseman) that lead to catching the speedy Billy Hamilton five times while in the California League. Because the Giants have the face of MLB Buster Posey, Susac is a highly-valuable backup. If he was on any other team, he would be the starting catcher. Offensively he made strides to adjust his swing to be more compact and it has been successful. His glove will keep him in the bigs and if he delivers a .250-.265 average as most scouts think, he will have a successful career. Behind the plate, he is still working on framing pitches.
