As the San Francisco Giants get set to embark on a full-scale rebuild, more attention than ever will be paid to the current state of the farm system.

With the 2019 MLB draft now in the rearview and a fresh collection of talent set to join the farm system ranks, we’ll take a position-by-position look at the top prospects at each position for the San Francisco Giants. First up, the catchers.

5. Fabian Pena, High-A (22 years old)

A 25th-round pick out of Manhattan College in 2018, Pena hit .309/.376/.588 with 16 extra-base hits in 110 plate appearances in rookie ball after signing last year.

He made the jump straight to High-A this season where he has been serving as the backup to Joey Bart.

Pena draws strong marks from his athleticism behind the plate and his strong receiving skills, giving him a strong backup catcher profile. The 22-year-old also has some pop, though, and it will be interesting to see how he develops offensively.

Dear John,

I do not find anything in my ‘stuff’ for Fabian, but the piece states that he is class of 2018.
