Giants' Joey Bart: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the A's.

John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle suggests it could end up being a two-day break for Bart, with Johnny Cueto slated to start Monday's opener against Colorado. Bart, like most young players, will need to make some adjustments; he is just 2-for-his-last-19 and is batting .241/.302/.304 through 86 plate appearances.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart is not in Sunday's lineup against the Diamondbacks.

Giants' Joey Bart: Legs out triple
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart went 2-for-4 with a triple, an RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win over Arizona.

Bart legged out the first triple of his MLB career and has been on fire this month, hitting in all four of his September appearances and posting a .471 average in that stretch. Small sample size applies here, but this is quite an improvement compared to the .161 average he posted in 10 August games.

Giants' Joey Bart: Provides three singles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart went 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI in Tuesday's 23-5 win over the Rockies.

Bart also reached base a fourth time when he was hit by a pitch. After recording exactly one hit in each of his first four MLB games, Bart had fallen into a 1-for-19 slump before breaking out Tuesday along with a number of teammates, as San Francisco's 27 hits were the most by an NL team since 1999.

Giants' Joey Bart: Moving up to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants called up Bart from their alternate training site ahead of Thursday's game against the Angels.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft and one of the top catching prospects in all of baseball, Bart will make the jump to the majors with less than 100 plate appearances of Double-A experience under his belt. Despite his lack of high-level experience, the 23-year-old should prove to be an immediate upgrade over the Giants' current backstop tandem of Chadwick Tromp (.521 OPS) and Tyler Heineman (.503 OPS). Expect Bart to immediately settle into an everyday role behind the dish with San Francisco, and the Giants could look to keep his bat in the lineup by deploying him as a designated hitter on his non-catching days. Bart slashed .284/.343/.542 with 29 home runs in 130 games over his two seasons in the minors.

Giants' Joey Bart: Could debut over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart has been taking grounders at first base at the alternate training site and could be called up Friday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Teams can now call up prospects without the player accruing a full year of service time. The Giants have said in the past that they want Bart to learn another defensive position before joining the major-league roster, and it turns out he's been working at first base with the club in West Sacramento. With no minor-league games this season, the 23-year-old could be at risk of stagnating in his development if he's not competing regularly in a live setting.

Giants' Joey Bart: Unlikely to replace Posey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Gabe Kapler said Friday that Bart is unlikely to serve as the Giants' primary catcher to begin the 2020 season, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Bart was unlikely to make the Opening Day roster heading into summer camp, but the Giants' catcher position opened up Friday after Buster Posey announced that he is opting out of the 2020 season. However, both Kapler and general manager Farhan Zaidi said that they feel as though Bart still has some development left and isn't a likely candidate to replace Posey. Tyler Heineman and Rob Brantly are the most likely options to handle the bulk of the work behind the plate this year.

Giants' Joey Bart: Likely to reappear in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart will be in major-league camp once play resumes but likely isn't a candidate for the Opening Day roster, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Bart was reassigned to minor-league camp in March before the season was suspended, but he'll now get a chance to gain more experience against higher-level talent before the regular season gets underway. The catcher appeared in just 22 games at the Double-A level in 2019, but he hit .280/.329/.503 with 17 home runs and 49 RBI over 80 total games in the minors last year. It's unclear what level the 23-year-old will be assigned to once the season begins.

Giants' Joey Bart: Heads to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Bart was in big-league camp to start the spring but was never under serious consideration for an Opening Day roster spot. The 23-year-old may be the catcher of the future for the Giants, but that future won't be coming just yet as he's played only 22 games at the Double-A level. His destination to start the season has yet to be announced.

Giants' Joey Bart: Avoids thumb surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Joey Bart: Suffers fractured thumb
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Joey Bart: Promoted to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Giants' Joey Bart: Homers in return to action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
