Seriously, he's like the 2nd or 3rd youngest starting pitcher in the Eastern League and he's dominating guys that are on average 2-4 years older than him (2.59 ERA, 48 Ks to only 11 BBs in 48.2 IP, 1.07 WHIP and a 2.23 FIP, tied for 4th best in the league).

Gotta hope he progresses next year so we can get him in the rotation quickly.

You never really know when it comes to prospects, but Escobar has at least 2 things going for him that guys like Kickham and Surkamp don't: Major league stuff, age-appropriate dominance/production.

Agreed. Surkamp and Kickham are marginal prospects at this point. Escobar has upside and potentially a middle of the rotation starter.

And at the very least, he's a valuable trade chip if we're looking to acquire a LF or a #4-type of starter. Personally, I'd keep him because of the potential, but Sabes typically doesn't approach things that way unless the guy is a clear-cut top prospect.

I think Kickham has alot more value to the team than Surkamp does

You might be right but Surkamp has been a more effective pitcher in the minors. I really dont think either are that much value either as starters for the Giants or as trade chips.
Javy placed on waivers

Predictable. Still seeing if they can move him to someone for the title chase. I have to think that any team would love to have a guy who can shut down lefties.

San Francisco GM Brian Sabean reportedly had exorbitant asking price at the time, seeking top prospect Danny Salazar from the Indians in exchange for Lopez.

Indians would have been out of their minds to do that deal obviously
Speaking of prospects, San Jose RF Mac Williamson has been on fiyah the last week! In his last 8 games, he's hitting an even .500 (16-32) with 5 doubles, 4 HRs and 14 RBIs. With 8 more games to go in the season, Mac's average is up to .289, his 24 HRs are 3rd in the Cal League (only 3 behind the leader) and his .874 OPS is 12th overall.
Ziti gave up another homer, down by 3
I'm over it.

Out of the three placed on waivers, who will be likely to go? Or will they finish the season?

The only one that might go would be Lopez. Most likely they will all finish the season.

Yup, if anyone goes it would be Javy, but they're likely all just blocked.
