Luciano received an invitation Friday to the Giants' big-league spring training camp. Luciano is a fantastic talent, displaying top-of-the-scale exit velocities, good plate discipline and the potential to stick at shortstop. He's unlikely to be seriously considered for an Opening Day roster spot, as he's just 19 years old and has played all of 47 professional games, none of which have come at the full-season level, but he'll get to work with the big-league coaching staff for a few weeks in hopes of joining them on a permanent basis as soon as 2022.
Luciano will be a part of the Giants' taxi squad this season, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports. While Luciano is the Giants' top prospect and one of the best prospects in baseball, he has yet to play at Low-A, let alone the majors. It is unclear how much major-league action he will get during the regular season, but it seems unlikely that he will play enough to be a factor in redraft leagues.
Luciano was promoted to short-season Salem-Keizer, Giants Prospects reports. The top prospect to sign on July 2, 2018, Luciano hit .322/.438/.616 with 10 home runs and eight steals in the AZL. He turns 18 in September and is one of the most exciting prospects in the minor leagues.
