Joey Bart

Giants fans will have to wait until after Opening Day to see top prospect Joey Bart.

However, he has done everything in his power to reach the big leagues sooner than expected.

As the heir apparent to Buster Posey and the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 draft, expectations are extremely high for Bart. If he can live up to them in his first few seasons, he could quickly emerge as the most valuable player on the team.

He went 7-for-16 with one double and two home runs this spring before he was optioned to the minors.

The backup catcher job will belong to either Rob Brantly or Tyler Heineman to begin the year, but if neither guy excels in the role early on, Bart could find himself on the roster awfully quick.

From there, it’s only a matter of time before he forces his way into the starting lineup and pushes Posey to another position.
