It's been a bit of an up-and-down season for Giants pitching prospect Kyle Crick.
The organization's supplemental first-round pick in 2011, and its No. 15 prospect, began his first full season by posting a 2.30 ERA and .173 batting average against in April. Then he had a 5.18 ERA and .264 BAA in May.
His first two starts in June, though, are the reason he's the Prospect Watch Pitcher of the Week. The big right-hander made two starts and didn't allow an earned run, yielding just one unearned run on three hits (.079 BAA) over 12 innings. He walked four -- control has been an issue for him -- and struck out 14.
Overall, Crick's 3.12 ERA is ninth in the South Atlantic League and he's tied for 10th with 65 strikeouts (he has an 11.2 K/9 ratio.). His .199 BAA is second-best in the circuit.
