Seth Corry becomes fifth Giant on top 100 prospects list originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
The Giants have put a lot of effort into restocking their farm system over the last few years, and they are starting to see the fruits of their labor.
Top prospect Joey Bart has reached the majors this season and the Giants have several other high-end players on the way.
One of the most talked-about pitchers in the Giants' system, Seth Corry, now can call himself a Top 100 prospect.
Players lose their status as a prospect when they reach either 130 major-league at-bats or 50 innings pitched.
Corry, a left-handed starter, was taken in the third round of the 2017 MLB Draft. After subpar 2017 and 2018 seasons in the minors, Corry had a breakout 2019 season. He made 26 starts and one relief appearance for Class-A Augusta and posted a sparkling 1.76 ERA. In just 122 2/3 innings, the 21-year-old Corry struck out a whopping 172 batters.
Among Giants prospects, Corry is No. 5 overall in the system, according to MLB Pipeline behind Bart, shortstop Marco Luciano, and outfielders Heliot Ramos and Hunter Bishop. All five are ranked among the top 100 prospects in baseball.
Corry was not among the Giants' 60-man player pool for the 2020 season, so the next time we'll see him pitch in competitive games is 2021.
Both Corry and the Giants are on the rise.
