With their first pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, the Giants selected RHP Phil Bickford from College of Southern Nevada.
Bickford was ranked No. 27 on Baseball America's Top 500 Draft Prospects.
Two years ago, Bickford was selected with the No. 10 pick by the Toronto Blue Jays out of Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian High School. Toronto was unable to sign him and he instead went to Cal State Fullerton for his freshman year.
After one season at CSU Fullerton, Bickford transferred to the College of Southern Nevada to become draft eligible for 2015.
In his one year at Southern Nevada, Bickford went 9-1 with a 1.45 ERA and struck out 166 batters compared to only 21 walks in 86.2 innings pitched.
