After selecting San Mateo native Hunter Bishop with the 10th overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, the San Francisco Giants used their second Day 1 pick on Logan Wyatt, a first baseman from Louisville University. Both Bishop and Wyatt are left-handed batters with potential high power upsides, something that may be part of Farhan Zaidi’s (the Giants’ President of Baseball Operations) plan or approach to acquiring talent on a power-struggling team.
Here’s MLB.com’s take on Wyatt, a 6’4″, 21-year-old junior who hit .339 in his sophomore season. In his junior year, Wyatt batted .295 with nine home runs and 52 RBIs, helping him to secure his spot as the 51st overall pick in the 2019 draft.
Bishop and Wyatt comprised both of the Giants’ two Day 1 picks. The team did not fail to sign any of its draftees or lose any substantial free agents in the past offseason, and so did not receive any additional draft picks. On Days 2 and 3 of the 2019 MLB Draft, the Giants will have the 10th pick in each round.
