Catcher, Salem-Keizer Volcanoes

Age: 20 (May 14, 1999)

Genoves has done his hitting in bunches. He hit two home runs in Tuesday’s win over the Everett AquaSox and has shined defensively. The homers in this young season have already surpassed his home run total of last year by three, and his arm has nailed several baserunners. His professional career, which started in 2016, has been entirely in the Giants organization.
