The minor league season has come to an end, and the final results might have San Francisco Giants fans concerned. None of the organization’s minor league squads made the playoffs and, much like the major league club, injuries were a major storyline all season. Top prospects Tyler Beede and Christian Arroyo have missed much of the season due to injuries, and even newly drafted Heliot Ramos hasn’t seen the field much after being hit in the head by a pitch last month.
With the minor league baseball season wrapping up, the latest edition of the KNBR Minor League Podcast looks back at some of this year’s standout players from the San Francisco Giants farm system and which players might be ready to make the jump to the majors. September call ups are right around the corner, and while some prospects like infielder Ryder Jones and pitcher Chris Stratton have already joined the big league club, there are plenty of fresh faces still to come.
Usually teams that are sitting at the bottom of their division in August don’t have that many interesting storylines to keep fans engaged during the dog days of the baseball season. The San Francisco Giants are not most teams though. There are plenty of interesting young players who have been recently called up to the bigs like infielder Miguel Gomez and relief pitcher Kyle Crick, and some who might be in the majors soon like left fielder Chris Shaw and starting pitcher Andrew Suarez.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
