Giants prospects Joey Bart, Heliot Ramos could start 2020 in Triple-A

SAN FRANCISCO—Mike Yastrzemski was a hell of a find, and the Giants feel good about what they saw from Tyler Beede, Logan Webb, Tyler Rogers and others late in the year. But as they try and build a contender, the best developments in 2019 came at much lower levels.

For the first time in a decade, the Giants have a group of high-end prospects coming through the system, and a couple could arrive as early as next year. Joey Bart and Heliot Ramos finished the season in Double-A, and president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi said on this week’s Giants Insider Podcast that both will enter spring training with “the opportunity but not with a guarantee of starting the season in Triple-A.”

Being in Sacramento in April would put Bart, a 22-year-old catcher, and Ramos, a 20-year-old outfielder, in position to debut next season.

“They’re going to have to earn that (promotion to Triple-A) and then we’ll see where things go from there,” Zaidi said. “One thing that we really wanted to emphasize and create a culture of this year was you earn your way through the system and there’s no fixed timetables. Guys will be moved on merit and be given opportunities. That’s true for guys that might be perceived as org guys and it’s also true for the top prospects.

Something to watch for, particularly for those of us lucky enough to live in a AAA city.
