Bart will be out 4-to-6 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of his right thumb but won't require surgery.
Bart was hit by a pitch Tuesday while playing in the Arizona Fall League, and he'll obviously be sidelined for the remainder of that season. Overall it's relatively good news, as the 22-year-old shouldn't have any issues being ready for spring training in February.
Bart suffered a fractured right thumb Tuesday while playing in the Arizona Fall League, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The fractured thumb will cause Bart to miss the rest of the AZL season. The 22-year-old had hit three home runs with six RBI over nine games played in the Arizona Fall League.
Bart was promoted to Double-A Richmond on Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The 22-year-old catcher hit .265/.315/.479 with 12 home runs in 251 plate appearances in the California League. Double-A will be a fair test for Bart, as he was a little old for High-A. He will clearly hit for power and will clearly stick at catcher, but the jury is still out on whether he will be capable of posting high batting averages and on-base percentages against MLB pitchers. If he fares well in the upper levels of the minors, Bart could make his big-league debut next summer.
Bart (hand) went 2-for-3 with a home run, walk, three RBI and three runs in his return from the 7-day injured list Tuesday in High-A San Jose's 9-4 win over Modesto.
Sidelined since April 15 with a fractured hand, Bart displayed little rust in his return to action, reaching base three times while going deep for the third time this season. There's always a concern with a hitter's power being sapped upon returning from a hand injury, so it's especially encouraging that Bart was able to leave the yard in the first game back. Though Bart is widely viewed as the top catching prospect currently in the minors, he may lose that distinction once 2019 No. 1 overall pick Adley Rutschman debuts in affiliated ball.
Bart (hand) will be activated from the minor-league injured list Tuesday, San Jose Giants broadcaster Joe Ritzo reports.
Bart has been out with a fractured hand since mid-April. He was initially given a 4-to-6 week timeline but will wind up missing seven weeks. The 22-year-old hit .270/.341/.541 in 10 games for High-A San Jose before suffering the injury.
Bart (hand) stated that he could return to action "any day now," Dalton Johnson of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bart has been sidelined with a fractured metacarpal after getting drilled by a pitch April 15. The Giants' top catching prospect has been rehabbing his hand at the team's spring training facility, but it sounds like he is getting ready to return to, presumably, High-A San Jose shortly. Bart was slashing .270/.341/.541 prior to landing on the injured list.
Bart (hand) is about 10 days from getting into an extended spring training game, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Bart fractured his left hand in mid-April, but he's been progressing nicely and should return to game action in just over a week. The Giants are unlikely to rush one of their top prospects back before he's ready, so don't be surprised if they exercise caution with the backstop.
Bart has been diagnosed with a fractured left hand and is expected to miss the next 4-to-6 weeks, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bart exited Monday night's minor-league game after getting drilled by a pitch on the hand, and the injury will result in an extended absence for one of San Francisco's top prospects. The good news is that the fracture is on Bart's non-throwing hand, which should make for a quicker recovery.
Bart is seeing a hand specialist Tuesday after being hit by a pitch Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bart appeared to be in quite some pain following the incident. The Giants are expected to provide an update on the nature and severity of the injury following his visit to the specialist.
Bart exited Monday's minor-league game after being struck by a pitch near his wrist, play-by-play announcer for the San Jose Giants, Joe Ritzo, reports.
Bart looked to get hit near his wrist and was clearly in pain immediately after, although the extent of the damage is not yet known. He'll be considered day-to-day and is likely headed for X-rays.
Bart is opening the year with High-A San Jose, Jim Callis of MLB.com reports.
The No. 2 overall pick in last year's draft demolished short-season pitching after signing, but this will be a much fairer test for the 22-year-old backstop. He will probably rake again in the California League, and his defense is good enough that it won't slow his ascent up the minor-league ranks.
Bart was reassigned to minor-league camp Friday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Bart left quite an impression during his first major-league spring training as he slashed .350/.381/.600 with two doubles and a home run in 20 at-bats. The 22-year-old spent the bulk of 2018 at Low-A Salem-Keizer and posted a .983 OPS, and is ticketed to begin the 2019 season at High-A San Jose.
Bart went 1-for-3 with a double and three RBI in Monday's game against the Dodgers.
Bart notched his second double of the spring in the ninth inning with the bases loaded, scoring three runs and giving his club a 4-1 lead. The 22-year-old prospect has been impressive at the dish in big-league camp and is now 7-for-14 with a home run, six RBI and two runs scored.
