The Giants optioned C Joey Bart to Triple-A Sacramento.
Bart went 0-for-1 in his (extremely) brief promotion to the majors. He'll play regularly in Triple-A and remains one of the better catching prospects in baseball.
San Francisco Giants' catcher Joey Bart was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento as RHP Kevin Gausman was placed on the injured list.
Bart didn't make the team out of Spring Training this season after making his MLB debut during the shortened 2020 campaign. He's got a ton of upside over the long run but it's unclear how long he'll be with the Giants during this upcoming stint.
Giants GM Scott Harris confirms that catcher Joey Bart will begin the 2021 season in the minors.
The 24-year-old appeared in 33 big league games during the shortened 2020 campaign due to Buster Posey opting out of the season. Bart hit .233 without a homer and could likely use some more seasoning in the minors. He remains a valuable prospect to roster in dynasty league formats.
Joey Bart went 1-for-3 with a single as the Giants were blanked by the Padres 6-0 on Friday.
Bart and the rest of the Giants were shut down by Chris Bassitt and the Oakland bullpen as they only collected three hits as a team. After a rough August when the backstop hit just .161 with a .515 OPS (31 at-bats) he's really picked it up in September, slashing .311 with a .710 OPS across 45 at-bats. He's still searching for his first home run of the season but the future is bright for the former number two pick.
Joey Bart went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple and a run scored as the Giants held on to beat the D-backs 4-3 on Saturday.
Bart crushed a two-out triple to plate Brandon Belt off reliever Artie Lewicki in the bottom of the sixth to put the Giants up 3-1. Mauricio Dubon would follow with another triple to score Bart in the next at-bat. The rookie catcher came close to hitting the first home run of the year with his triple but it was still a solid day at the dish for him. He's hitting .271 with a .727 OPS over 48 at-bats.
