Joey Bart 2020 Outlook

Recommended Posts

From right here...

Giants purchased the contract of C Joey Bart.

Bart figures to make his major league debut in Thursday night's game against the Angels and should be rostered in all standard and NL-only fantasy leagues. The 23-year-old catcher was selected second overall in the 2018 MLB Draft out of Georgia Tech and put up an .824 OPS with 16 home runs and five stolen bases in 79 games last season between High-A San Jose and Double-A Richmond. Bart also tore it up in the 2019 Arizona Fall League. It's a shame there will be no fans in attendance at Oracle Park for his first MLB at-bat.

 Called up.  Power, pedigree, some speed, should get a a good lineup spot.  Must add?

Anything at C that has any possibility of hope is a must add. C is always such a dumpster fire. Add and if he doesn't pan out throw him back on the heap.

That line of thinking doesn’t work in all leagues.  Not every prospect can just be picked up.  For Leagues  that have faab, continuous waivers, or short benches, this guy will come at some cost and decision making.  Does anyone have any insight into whether he’ll play every day, order in the lineup, pro comparison (aside from the milb forum.)

No idea on PT, but he is hitting sixth in his first game...

Nah man, for C anything goes. When there's really only 1 or two good options at a position you can afford to make a dart throw on new blood. If he doesn't pan out you throw him back and pick up another similarly crappy option. 

They were trying to get him comfortable with 1B prior to the callup. So I think they are looking at getting him in regularly at C, 1B, or DH. Not sure how they actually play him, but I doubt they want him to sit much. I think they'll play him as much as possible to see what they got. C eligible player that supposed to be a solid hitter with pop and playing time, sign me up every time. The cost of adding him will only go up if he succeeds.

Joe Bart Mall Cop, let's get mashing. Be interesting to see how he puts up in SFs scrappy offense. I haven't followed SFs catcher situation, wonder how much PT he'll get if he doesn't hit well and/or struggles defensively.

3 hits all gone for 3 dubs... 2 almost left the yard.  A lot to like about Bart right now hopefully he can get every day ABs in the middle of that lineup.
