  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Bart (head) is starting at catcher and batting fifth in Saturday's game against the Red Sox.

    Bart was slated to start Wednesday against the Mets, but he was scratched from the lineup late while dealing with concussion symptoms after being hit in the head by a ball during batting practice a few days prior. Having evidently checked out OK, Bart will draw the start against Boston right-hander Kutter Crawford while Henry Davis gets a rest.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: May have concussion symptoms

    Pirates manager Derek Shelton said Bart was scratched from the lineup ahead of Wednesday's 9-1 loss to the Mets after the catcher wasn't feeling well leading up to game time, Noah Hiles of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    While elaborating on the matter, Shelton noted that Bart was hit in the head by a ball during batting practice a few days ago, but the Pirates had fully expected the 27-year-old to be ready to catch for Wednesday's series finale. However, in light of Bart being scratched prior to first pitch a few days after taking the hit to the head, it's possible that the catcher is dealing with symptoms of a concussion. The Pirates haven't explicitly said that Bart is in concussion protocol at this time, so he'll be considered day-to-day heading into this weekend's three-game series with the Red Sox.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Makes most of rare start

    Bart went 1-for-2 with two walks and a solo home run Sunday against the Phillies.

    Bart made only his third start with the Pirates and first since Monday. While his playing time has been limited to giving Henry Davis breathers, Bart has made the most of his chances by going 4-for-12 with a pair of home runs and a double since joining Pittsburgh. Due to the lack of playing time, Bart is difficult to roster in most formats, though he is a player to monitor given Davis' early-season struggles.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Homers on first swing with new team

    Bart went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 5-4 extra-innings win over the Orioles.

    Incredibly, Bart went yard on his very first swing as a member of the Pirates -- his first home run in the big leagues since Sept. 10, 2022, as noted by Alex Stumpf of MLB.com. Bart, the second overall pick by the Giants in 2018, struggled to find his footing in parts of fours seasons in San Francisco, but he's getting a fresh start in Pittsburgh after being acquired via trade this week. He will play behind Henry Davis at the catcher position with Yasmani Grandal (foot) on the injured list and not close to a return.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Lands in Pittsburgh

    The Giants traded Bart to the Pirates on Tuesday in exchange for Austin Strickland, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The Giants designated Bart for assignment Sunday, and he will now attempt to carve out a role for himself with the Pirates. The 27-year-old backstop has struggled at the plate throughout his MLB career, slashing .219/.288/.335 over four seasons, but he'll give the Pirates depth behind the dish while Yasmani Grandal (foot) is sidelined.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: DFA'd by San Francisco

    The Giants designated Bart for assignment Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    The former top prospect was once viewed as the heir apparent behind the plate to Buster Posey, but the 27-year-old struggled to a .623 OPS in 162 career games in the big leagues. Bart could receive some interest on the waiver wire given his prospect pedigree, and a change of scenery would likely be beneficial.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Makes Opening Day roster

    Bart (hamstring) made the Giants' Opening Day roster but didn't appear off the bench in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Padres.

    Bart tweaked his right hamstring in a March 22 Cactus League game, but he was able to play in both of the Giants' Bay Bridge Series exhibition games against the Athletics on Monday and Tuesday to guarantee his availability for the start of the season. He's opening the season as the Giants' No. 3 catcher and is unlikely to see much playing time behind Patrick Bailey and Tom Murphy.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Could return Sunday

    Bart (hamstring) is likely to play Sunday in the Giants' exhibition game against Triple-A Sacramento, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Bart left Friday's Cactus League game against the Cubs after tweaking his hamstring, but it appears the catcher shouldn't miss extended time. He's had an impressive spring training and is slashing .407/.514/.444 with five RBI over 35 plate appearances.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Tweaks hamstring Friday

    Bart left Friday's Cactus League game against the Cubs due to a hamstring injury, Russell Dorsey of Bally Sports reports.

    Bart had one at-bat in Friday's game before being lifted for a pinch hitter, and the severity of the hamstring injury isn't yet known. He has slashed .407/.514/.444 with five RBI over 35 plate appearances in spring training.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Facing potential roster crunch

    Bart appears unlikely to break camp with the Giants and is out of minor-league options, making him a candidate to be traded or otherwise moved off the 40-man roster prior to Opening Day, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Chosen with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 First-Year Player Draft, Bart was seen as the heir apparent to Buster Posey at the time he was selected, but the now-27-year-old backstop has struggled to meet expectations since reaching the big leagues for the first time in 2020. Due to groin injuries and his own struggles at the dish, Bart appeared in just 30 games for the Giants in 2023, mustering a .207/.263/.264 slash line across 95 plate appearances. Meanwhile, 24-year-old Patrick Bailey surpassed Bart on the organizational depth chart, and the Giants bolstered their catching ranks with the signing of veteran Tom Murphy, who is expected to serve as the No. 2 option and should play regularly versus left-handed pitching. Unless the team elects to keep three catchers on the Opening Day roster or unless Bailey or Murphy succumb to an injury in spring training, the Giants don't look like they'll have room for Bart, whose pedigree should be reason enough for another catching-needy team to acquire him via trade or a waiver claim.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Giants optioned Bart to Triple-A Sacramento on Friday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

    Bart has spent most of this season in the minors and will now finish out the year there. Selected second overall in the 2018 MLB Draft out of Georgia Tech, the 26-year-old catcher owns a highly disappointing .219/.288/.335 career slash line in 503 major-league plate appearances. He could be a trade candidate this winter.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Back with Giants

    The Giants recalled Bart from Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.

    After losing Jakob Junis (neck) for the year, the Giants will opt to bolster their bench depth and add Bart as their third catcher on the active roster. The 26-year-old backstop went 0-for-9 during his most recent stint in the majors and doesn't figure to see regular playing time during the final week of the season.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Optioned to Triple-A

    Bart was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    He was up with the big club while Patrick Bailey was on the 7-day concussion injured list, but with Bailey having now been activated, Bart's presence is no longer required. Bart was hitless in four games during this most recent stint in the majors.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Coming up from Triple-A

    Bart was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.

    Patrick Bailey suffered a concussion Tuesday and will be sidelined at least for the next week. Bart could start at catcher against lefties while Bailey is out, with Blake Sabol seeing most of the action versus righties. The 2018 first-round pick has a lowly .634 OPS over parts of four major-league seasons.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Reinstated off IL, optioned to AAA

    Bart (groin) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list and optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.

    Bart will get more time in Triple-A while recovering from his groin strain, but this likely has at least something to do with Patrick Bailey and Blake Sabol being better options for the Giants at this point. It's likely the Giants will give Bart a chance again this summer.

  • Giants' Joey Bart: Evaluated to determine next steps

    Bart (groin) is being evaluated by the Giants on Friday to determine his next steps, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

    Bart has been on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento, and the Giants will see how their backstop is recovering from the left groin strain that has sidelined him since the middle of May. It's possible Bart could be activated in the early part of next week, but his status likely won't be updated until the weekend. It's also unknown if he'll return to a starting role with Patrick Bailey receiving most of the reps behind the plate while Bart has been out.
