Giants' Joey Bart: Optioned back to Sacramento
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart was optioned back to Triple-A Sacramento following Sunday's win over Washington, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Bart was brought up to the 26-man roster Saturday and notched two singles, one RBI and a run scored in Saturday's win. He'll now continue to get reps in Sacramento while the big club is on break. It's possible that the backstop rejoins the 26-man roster for Friday's game against the Cardinals, but that decision will likely depend on whether Buster Posey (thumb) is ready to be activated from the injured list.

Giants' Joey Bart: Recalled by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart was recalled by the Giants on Saturday, Maria I. Guardado of reports.

Bart will give the Giants an extra catcher for the final two days before the break after Buster Posey (thumb) hit the injured list Thursday. He's swung a hot bat in 35 games for Triple-A Sacramento, homering eight times while slashing .338/.400/.581. He'll head straight into the starting lineup, catching and batting seventh against the Nationals. Logan Webb was optioned in a corresponding move.

Giants' Joey Bart: Joins taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart (foot) joined the Giants' taxi squad Friday and could be activated over the weekend, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

With Curt Casali and Chadwick Tromp both on the 26-man roster, Bart isn't immediately needed even after Buster Posey landed on the injured list. Nonetheless, his move to the taxi squad indicates Bart has gotten past the foot injury he suffered last week, and he could join the roster at some point during the weekend series against Washington.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart exited Friday's game with Triple-A Sacramento in the first inning due to an apparent foot injury, River Cats broadcaster Johnny Doskow reports.

Bart was hit on the foot by a fastball in the first inning Friday, and he was removed from the game. The severity of the injury isn't yet clear, and whether he's forced to miss additional time remains to be seen.

Giants' Joey Bart: Heating up at Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two RBI for Triple-A Sacramento in its 4-3 win over Reno on Tuesday.

Just over a month into the minor-league season, Bart has already churned out seven multi-hit games at Sacramento. The 24-year-old catcher is now slashing .358/.411/.642 through 73 plate appearances in the minors, but a call-up to the big leagues likely won't be in the forecast for Bart unless No. 1 backstop Buster Posey is forced to the injured list at some point.

Giants' Joey Bart: Moves past groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart (groin) returned to the lineup at Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday, going 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

Bart was sidelined for just over a week with a sore groin, but he appears to have made a full recovery from the issue. The 24-year-old is expected to spent most of the season at Sacramento, but he'll likely be the next man up for No. 1 catching duties at the big-league level should Buster Posey miss time at any point.

Giants' Joey Bart: Dealing with groin tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart came out of Thursday's game for Triple-A Sacramento due to groin tightness, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Bart was removed as a precaution. The 24-year-old backstop is hitting .351/.400/.676 with three home runs and a 30 percent strikeout rate in 11 games at Triple-A.

Giants' Joey Bart: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento after Wednesday's loss to the Rockies, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old was promoted Tuesday and made an appearance as a pinch hitter, but he'll head to the minors with Sacramento's season set to begin Thursday. Bart should serve as the regular starter behind the plate for the River Cats this season.

Giants' Joey Bart: Recalled by Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart was recalled by the Giants on Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Bart's stay on the big-league roster may be temporary, as he'll be filling the roster spot that had belonged to Kevin Gausman, who isn't expected to miss much time while recovering from the side effects of the COVID-19 vaccine. It's possible he'll stick around as Buster Posey's backup, but it's unclear why the Giants would abandon their plan to give Bart regular at-bats in Triple-A right as the minor-league seasons are beginning.

Giants' Joey Bart: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants optioned Bart to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday.

Due to the cancellation of the 2020 minor-league campaign along with Buster Posey's decision to opt out, Bart received his first taste of the big leagues last season, despite having only 22 games' worth of experience above the High-A level. The 24-year-old put together a few quality games to begin his major-league career, but he slumped badly in September to finish with a .233/.288/.320 slash line and 36.9 K% over 111 plate appearances. With Posey back in the fold, Bart will get some more development time in the minors to begin 2021, but he'll likely get another trial with the Giants at some point during the season.

Giants' Joey Bart: Crushing in spring ball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart is 6-for-13 with one home run, three runs scored, two RBI, two walks and two stolen bases through seven spring training games.

It's the 24-year-old's third year in big-league camp with the Giants, and he's impressed at the plate each year. Bart made the jump to the majors last season and struggled with a .608 OPS and 36.9 percent strikeout rate, but he should be headed to Triple-A for 2021 to continue his progression. Buster Posey is back as the starter after opting out in 2020, and Curt Casali signed over the offseason to likely operate as the primary backup catcher.

Giants' Joey Bart: Likely heading to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart is expected to open the year in the minors after the Giants signed Curt Casali to a major-league deal Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

The 2018 second-overall pick got called up ahead of schedule last year due to Buster Posey's opt out, but he didn't exactly prove to be big-league ready, hitting .233/.288/.320 with a 36.9 percent strikeout rate and a 2.7 percent walk rate in 33 games. The acquisition of Casali means the Giants now have a veteran backup for Posey, allowing Bart to finish his development in the minors before pushing for his second chance at the highest level.

Giants' Joey Bart: Set to work behind Posey
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bart will likely begin the upcoming season as the Giants' No. 2 catcher after manager Gabe Kapler said Tuesday that Buster Posey would receive "the lion's share of the reps" behind the plate in 2021, Alden Gonzalez of reports.

Posey's decision to opt out of the 2020 campaign during summer camp may have had a hand in Bart -- the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 first-year player draft -- receiving the call to the big leagues last summer, despite having only appeared in 22 games above the High-A level. After a strong start at the dish following his promotion, Bart slumped in September to finish with an underwhelming .233/.288/.320 slash line over his 111 plate appearances. The Giants still view the 24-year-old as their backstop of the future, so look for the organization to do whatever it can to make room for Bart to make more starts than the typical backup catcher. The lack of a universal designated hitter in 2021 limits the Giants' options, but Posey's ability to play first base at least offers one avenue for both Bart and the 2012 NL MVP to stick in the lineup simultaneously.

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.
