Giants prospects Joey Bart and Heliot Ramos

The two most exciting young offensive players in camp are Joey Bart and Heliot Ramos, and both have added to the hype this spring.

Bart crushed an opposite field home run on his first swing of spring training. On Friday night against the Colorado Rockies, Ramos showed his power as well.

Unfortunately, Ramos strained his oblique in that game, so he may be out of action for a bit, but he still has shown he is capable of making an impact. In that game, he made a laser throw to home plate, preventing a runner from advancing home, but that was the throw he injured himself on.

Bart has been solid as well, sporting a .545 average with a double and a home run in 13 plate appearances. He likely won’t make the team, but if he keeps up his strong spring, we could see him earn a promotion shortly after the start of the season.

So there you have it, some of the biggest surprises so far from Giants spring training.
