In the 15th round, the Giants drafted catcher Eugene Escalante from Mt. Olive College (N.C.).
Escalante -- the second catcher selected in four rounds by San Francisco -- is projected as having big power potential with a good arm.
In 2013, Escalante, a right-handed batter, hit .353 with 10 home runs and 47 RBIs in 184 at-bats. He also notched 14 doubles as a key component of the team's lineup.
Behind the plate, he threw out 11 of 19 runners who attempted to steal a base, and formed the battery with a pitching staff that finished the season with a 3.03 ERA.
