Game Of The Week: Giants’ Prospect Christian Arroya Has Big Night In San Jose

GOW17

The San Francisco Giants’ 2013 First Round Draft Pick Christian Arroyo has had a stellar run so far this season with the High-A San Jose Giants and this week he is just adding to it. The twenty year old shortstop missed almost the entire month of May with a left oblique strain and has been making his mark to help the team win since his return.

The Giants’ fourth best prospect has had twelve multiple hit games in the thirty-two he has played in the California League in 2015.

On June 30 he went 5 for 5 with two doubles, two runs scored and a RBI and is hitting .345 so far in this second half of the season.

On July 29 he had a three run homer and has had at least one hit in nine of the last ten games.

In the fifty-six games he has played in 2015 he is hitting .322 with a .372 OBP and .485 SLG with five homers and 23 RBIs.

In his first season, he was a standout in the Arizona League, coming in at first in RBIs, runs scored, doubles and slugging percentage.
