Giants open Day 3 with raw outfielder Fargas

The Giants began the third day of the First-Year Player Draft by selecting 18-year-old Puerto Rican prospect Johneshwy Fargas in the 11th round.

Fargas is one of the best Puerto Rican players in this year's Draft. He is still fairly raw, but his tools make him an exciting projectable outfielder.

2013 Draft Central

Fargas has above-average range in center field and a strong, accurate arm. Offensively, he needs more development. Fargas has a good, level swing, but doesn't project to hit for much power.

He has also played shortstop, and he has been clocked at 97 mph. Fargas plays with lots of enthusiasm in all aspects of his game.

His speed has the potential to be a weapon offensively, as well. Fargas is aggressive and has good instincts on the bases. With time, he could develop into a basestealing threat.
