Joey Bart joining Giants in 2019 halted by farm director Kyle Haines

Giants top prospect Joey Bart looks like a franchise cornerstone, and he’s proving it in his first big league camp with the Giants.

The No. 2 pick in the 2018 MLB Draft is batting .368 with a home run, two doubles and seven RBI in 14 games. He’s been so impressive, teammates awarded him the Barney Nugent Award, which is given annually to the player who performs best in his first big league camp.

One anonymous scout is so high on Bart he believes the catcher can join the Giants by midseason. But, Giants farm director Kyle Haines is here to halt the hype.

“A lot of people want to see him in San Francisco sooner rather than later, but we want to make sure we put him in a position to best grow in the minors,” Haines said to MLB.com.

On the one hand, the manipulation of service time drives one nuts- on the other hand, it seems unfortunate that his natural position is seemingly the only one which the Giants already have a first-rate player (at least we hope) in place….

MLB ‘19: College draft picks on rapid rise to big leagues

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Joey Bart already looks like a big league hitter in his first major league camp, especially when the San Francisco Giants catcher sends a misguided pitch soaring over the centerfield fence.

The same with White Sox shortstop Nick Madrigal every time he makes a spinning stab deep in the hole, or Tigers pitcher Casey Mize when he leaves an unsuspecting batter befuddled, or the four young arms the Royals selected among the first 40 picks of last year’s amateur draft.

All have a couple things in common: They played college baseball rather than turning pro out of high school, and they are all expected to help their clubs sooner than later.

That is, until the service-time manipulation begins….

Giants’ Tyler Beede takes massive drop in MLB top prospect rankings

The Giants’ young talents of Joey Bart and Heliot Ramos are more than enough to get us excited to see what the Orange and Black are going to do this season.

But until then, there are other young guys that are patiently waiting for their opportunities to make an impact with the big league club. And unfortunately, they will need to have a lot of patience.

Logan Webb, however, presents some positive news. He’s taken quite the leap in MLB Pipeline’s Top 30 prospect lists in the Giants’ organization.

Ah, spring training, where hope springs eternal for many a young baseball player….

Why Giants prospect Joey Bart’s first big league camp is ‘invaluable’

Joey Bart is expected to start the 2019 season in Advanced Single-A, but in spring training, the Giants’ top prospect will be with the big league club.

The No. 2 pick in the 2018 MLB Draft was one of 18 non-roster invitees to Giants big league camp. He should see plenty of action, but the best lessons for the 22-year-old could come outside of game action.

“There’s a whole culture about baseball that you have to learn,” Mike Krukow said Thursday on KNBR. “It’s more than just learning how to hit and throw and catch. You’ve gotta learn how to deal with the press. Learn where the good restaurants are in Scottsdale. It’s all part of the education.”

Best wishes- pity that the one thing he does best is pretty much the one thing the Giants don’t need.

Giants’ Joey Bart named top catching prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline

For what has been a desolate farm system in recent years, the Giants finally have an elite prospect.

Catcher Joey Bart is perhaps the Giants best prospect since Buster Posey, and so far he’s following in Posey’s footsteps.

Bart, the Giants’ top pick in the 2018 MLB Draft at No. 2 overall, has been named the best catching prospect in baseball by MLB Pipeline of MLB.com. The honor comes less than two weeks after Bart was named the team’s No. 1 prospect by Baseball America.

Something of real promise, especially for those of us who’ve seen the Giants’ Triple-A team lately.
