1. Joey Bart – Almost instantly picked by everyone as the #1 prospect in the organization when he was drafted #2 overall in the 2018 June draft, Bart instantly showed what he can do with a barrage of home runs in rookie ball.

Bart reminds many fans of Buster Posey. Not just because he plays catcher, but because he also is a high pick and also seems to be willing and able to take on the responsibility of leading a franchise.

More from Around the Foghorn

The highest draft pick by the Giants since Will Clark, Bart seems destined to follow in the footsteps of The Thrill and Buster.

The only question that seems to remain is when.

Will we be up sometime next season?

Could he be ready for the Major Leagues by September or even sooner?

Will he need more innings as a catcher before he is ready to play the position every day at the big league level?

While the Giants find the answers to these questions, fans will be clamoring for his bat until he arrives.

For a franchise that can’t seem to sign bats in the off-season, drafting them has become the best way to guarantee power.

The Giants Will Win Again...Someday. Next

With Ramos and Bart, it seems power is on its way. Now, we just have to wait for that train to come to the station.
