Giants prospect right-hander Chris Stratton is in stable condition after being hit in the head by a line drive during batting practice on Tuesday.
Stratton, who was selected No. 20 overall in June's First-Year Player Draft, was standing behind second base when he was struck by the line drive. Giants vice president Bobby Evans said that he was preliminarily diagnosed with a concussion. His first pro season is likely over. The 22-year-old right-hander has a 2.76 ERA and 16/10 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings in eight games (five starts) with Low-A Salem-Keizer. Wed, Aug 22, 2012 08:58:00 AM

Giants signed 2012 first-round pick RHP Chris Stratton.

He'll get $1.85 million, which is the slot value for the 20th overall selection. Stratton fell farther than expected in the draft and looks to have a good shot to become a mid-rotation starter down the line.

The Giants selected Mississippi State RHP Chris Stratton with the No. 20 pick in the 2012 draft.

San Francisco practically sprinted to the podium to get this pick in, as they probably didn't believe they'd have a shot at Stratton when the evening began. Stratton began the season in the bullpen, but quickly became the Bulldogs' ace and led the SEC in strikeouts. He has an ideal frame and a four-pitch arsenal. All of his tools are projected to be between average and above-average at the major league level. Assuming the late-bloomer fulfills that prophecy, the Giants just snagged no worse than a middle-of-the-rotation starter.
