Another catcher would have to get injured

In addition to Bart hitting the cover off the ball, there would also probably have to be an injury among either Buster Posey or Aramis Garcia to provide an opening for Bart to make the team.

Posey is the starting catcher no matter what to begin the year barring injury, and Garcia is going to be competing primarily with Tyler Heineman for the backup role.

That does not leave any room for Bart unless he outperforms Garcia and Heineman or one of them was to get injured.

Of course we want everyone to stay healthy, and if everyone does stay healthy, Bart would really have to exceed expectations to create an opening for himself on the roster.
