PSan Francisco Giants  
April 23, 2013
Fleet was named the California League's Pitcher of the Week after throwing 6.1 shutout innings (two appearances) and allowing just one hit with no walks and nine strikeouts. He was credited with the win in each game.
Fleet has been in the Giants system for a few years now and has posted fairly strong numbers between the Arizona Fall League and Low-A ball as a reliever. He made a few starts early on but has been shifted to the bullpen where he projects as nothing more than a set-up man. He doesn't have the make-up of a closer, but he is capable of working his way up through the minor leagues as a decent right-hander out of the bullpen. With a strong showing at High-A San Jose early on, he could get a look at the Double-A level sooner than later.
