SF Giants Prospects Weekly Rundown: Triple-A

Notable Performers

Joey Bart: 4 G, 11 AB, .364 AVG, 1.199 OPS, 1 HR, 4 RBI, 3 BB, 3 K
Jaylin Davis: 3 G, 12 AB, .500 AVG, 1.625 OPS, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 2 BB, 2 K
Braden Bishop: 5 G, 23 AB, .435 AVG, 1.370 OPS, 1 2B, 3 HR, 6 RBI, 3 BB, 4 K

It was another strong week offensively for Joey Bart. However, he was pulled out of Friday night’s game after getting hit in the foot by a pitch. Given Bart’s injury history, especially with hit by pitches, it’s an obvious reason for concern and it did look quite serious. Bart’s having a strong season and is seemingly on the cusp of returning to the big leagues but it’s fingers crossed all over the Giants fanbase that the 24-year old will not miss a significant amount of time.

Both Jaylin Davis and Thairo Estrada got called up in the middle of the week and are already making their mark on the big league squad. Jaylin is flashing the old magic that he’s had a couple of years ago with seven home runs in just 14 games at Triple-A. On the other hand, Thairo has been on fire throughout the 2021 season, batting .365 with seven home runs in 37 games.

After cooling down a bit a week ago, Braden Bishop is once again red hot for the River Cats. Bishop leads the team in batting average and is second in OBP among players with at least 20 games played for the squad. It was a bit surprising that Davis got the call to the big leagues first before Bishop, but given his profile as a defensive-minded, contact-oriented outfielder, Bishop’s offensive outburst is helping him make a case for another MLB opportunity.
