C Joey Bart, High-A San Jose Giants

It has been a great week for the Giants No. 1 Prospect, who hit an RBI single in his first at-bat with the High-A San Jose Giants and has hardly looked back since.

Although the team dropped their opening series against the Visalia Rawhide 3-1, Bart hit well throughout, batting fourth in the lineup behind the Giants No. 2 prospect, Heliot Ramos.

Rightfully touted as a future star—and the top catching prospect in all of baseball—Bart put up impressive power numbers for Low-A Salem-Keizer after signing last year, hitting .298/.369/.613 with 14 doubles and 13 home runs in 45 games.

Then again, that was far from surprising after he hit .359/.471/.632 with 16 home runs during his junior season at Georgia Tech before going No. 2 overall in the June draft.

Five games into the 2019 campaign, he’s hitting .300/.417/.650, with the highlight so far being a three-run homer to left field in a 10-1 blowout victory over the Stockton Ports on Monday.

If he keeps this up, it might not be long before the 22-year-old is moved up to Double-A as he continues on the fast track to San Francisco.
