On Sunday, the Giants selected two players. Their first-round pick, No. 30 overall, went to two-way player Reggie Crawford, who missed the 2022 season due to Tommy John surgery. The Giants intend to develop him is a two-way player, as he’s shown great potential with the bat (where he has a good amount of power as a first baseman) and on the mound (where he touches 100 with his fastball.
Their second-round pick, No. 66 overall, was used on left-handed pitcher Carson Whisenhunt, who also missed the 2022 season due to a suspension after testing positive for a banned substance. Whisenhunt was a mid-first round pick on many people’s draft boards.
