Heston, Kickham, Gaudin?

It sounds as if these guys are going to make it. 

Henry Schulman of the SF Chronicle says these 3 pitchers have good chances of making the club -- prospect starters Chris Heston, Michael Kickham and veteran reliever Chad Gaudin -- at some point in 2013.  

Heston throws a low-90s fastball and has four pitches that always seem to be around the plate. He led the Double-A Eastern League with a 2.24 ERA last year and struck out 135 in 148 2/3 innings with only 40 walks. The 24-year-old right-hander, taken in the 12th round of the 2009 draft out of East Carolina, could be the next Giants prospect to reach the majors as a starter.
Or it could be left-hander Michael Kickham, another 24-year-old. After Heston threw three shutout innings against Arizona in the "B" game, Kickham allowed one run in two innings.
