Future Watch: Joey Bart Rookie Baseball Cards, GiantsFuture Watch: Joey Bart Rookie Baseball Cards, GiantsJoey Bart was selected by the San Francisco Giants with the 2nd overall pick in the 2018 MLB Amateur Draft. With Buster Posey aging, this young backstop is their catcher of the future.

Bart was fast-tracked when he only spent 23 games in rookie league ball to finish the league in Short-A with the Salem Keizer Volcanoes. In 181 at-bats he had 14 doubles, two triples, 13 home runs and 39 RBI with a .298 batting average.

In 2019, he started with the San Jose Giants in advanced A-Ball. In 234 at-bats he had 10 doubles, two triples, 12 home runs, and 37 RBI. Surprisingly he had five steals and a .265 batting average.

Collectors can find his rookie card in 2019 Bowman Chrome.

According to his MLB.com Prospect Profile:

Thanks to his bat speed, strength, and leverage, Bart rivaled Alec Bohm (No. 3 overall to the Phillies) as the best right-handed power hitter in the 2018 Draft. He learned in college that he has natural power and doesn’t have to swing for the fences, and he has the potential to produce 25 homers per season. With his controlled swing and improved plate discipline, he should hit for average to go with his pop. Scouts were divided on Bart’s ability to stay behind the plate when he was coming out of high school, but he has put those questions to rest. He lacks speed like most catchers but is relatively athletic for his position, moves well behind the plate and has made himself into a solid receiver. He has a strong arm and threw out 39 percent of basestealers during his debut. ETA 2021.

Here’s a look at him when he was starring at Georgia Tech:

At 6-3, 235, he has good measurables to don the tools of ignorance. He closed out the year playing with the Richmond Flying Squirrels in Double-A. In 79 at-bats he had four doubles, one triple, four homers and 11 RBI with a .316 batting average. He’s a no-brainer to collect. He’s improving at every level.
