Ron Wotus, former San Francisco Giants third base coach, joined Sactown Sports Friday afternoon to talk about the Giants’ 2023 season and the main storylines that have happened.

JayMarZZ & guest co-host, Frank-Paul Santangelo Jr., discussed all things Giants with the long-time coach, everything from up & coming prospects to how the 2023 season could conclude. They also broke down major differences between the game in decades past to now. Plus, is Triple-A prospect Marco Luciano ready to join The Show full-time?

All that & more on Sactown Sports.

“He’s rated the No.2 prospect for a reason. He’s got a lot of bat potential, he’s really flown through the [minor league] system,” Ron Wotus said on the show Friday. “He’ll be knocking on the door next year, and he’s performed this season. So, he’s made a lot of great progress.”

Additional topics discussed include:

  • Is Marco Luciano ready to make the jump to the MLB full-time next year?
  • Why have the Giants been so hot & cold this season?
  • Is platooning players an issue for SF?
  • Is defense in baseball undervalued at the moment?
  • Ron’s thoughts on Patrick Bailey’s play in 2023
  • Ron shares some advice for young baseball coaches everywhere
