MLB Network announced the list Tuesday as Brown came in at No. 100 and Crick ranked at No. 86. The annual rankings are put together by MLB.com Draft and prospect expert Jonathan Mayo using industry sources in scouts and scouting directors. Mayo bases the analysis of players' skills sets, upsides, closeness to Majors and immediate impact to their teams. 

Crick spent the 2012 season at Single-A playing for the Augusta Green Jackets producing a 7-6 record displaying a 2.51 ERA in 22 games started. He allowed 75 hits, one homer, 67 walks, 128 strikeouts and opponents batted .193 off him in 111.1 innings. Crick relies on four pitches in a fastball, curve, slider and changeup. He was selected with the 49th pick in the 2011 First-Year Player Draft.

Brown showed off his skills at Double-A playing for the Richmond Flying Squirrels in 2012 batting .279 in 134 games. The righty smacked 150 hits, 32 doubles, two triples, seven homers, 42 RBI's, 40 walks, 33 stolen bases and scored 73 runs. He recorded a .347 on-base percentage and .385 slugging percentage reaching a .731 OPS. Brown was drafted No. 24 in the 2010 draft.

Two more future stars are waiting in the wings for the Giants as the future only gets bright for the reigning champs.
