Player Outlook
Joey Bart had what amounted to a lost season in 2023 when he really couldn't afford one. The former top prospect lasted just one game before going on the injured list with a back issue and then made another trip to the IL in May with a groin strain. Bart was returned to Triple-A Sacramento once recovered and didn't make it back to the big leagues until September (and even then it was just for a brief four-game stint). The 27-year-old managed just a .528 OPS in his 95 plate appearances with the Giants and a .750 OPS with only six homers at Sacramento didn't inspire much confidence, either. A change of scenery might be in order for Bart after the Giants added Tom Murphy to pair with Patrick Bailey.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Lifts grand slam in rout

    Bart went 1-for-4 with a grand slam in Tuesday's 12-2 win over the Brewers. Bart blew the game open in the sixth inning with his grand slam, and the Pirates never looked back. It was just his third hit over seven games since he returned from a month-long absence with a left thumb sprain. Bart is slashing .241/.330/.468 with five homers, 17 RBI, nine runs scored and three doubles across 91 plate appearances this season, and he's gaining playing time over Yasmani Grandal -- Tuesday was Bart's fourth straight start.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Making third straight start

    Bart will start at catcher and bat eighth Monday against the Mets. Bart will get his third straight start and looks to be trending toward being the top option for the Pirates at catcher over Yasmani Grandal. The 27-year-old -- who is slashing .250/.345/.458 in 27 games with the Pirates this season -- has started five of eight contests since returning from the injured list in late June.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Returning from IL, starting Sunday

    The Pirates reinstated Bart (thumb) from the 10-day injured list Sunday. He'll start at catcher and bat seventh in the Pirates' series finale in Atlanta. Top backstop Yasmani Grandal will take a seat Sunday while the Pirates clear the way for Bart to play in his first game for the big club since May 26. Bart missed more than a month while recovering from a left thumb sprain but proved his health during a recent six-game rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis, going 6-for-17 with a double and three walks.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Sent on rehab assignment

    Bart (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Alex Stumpf of MLB.com reports. Bart will see game action for the first time since being placed on the 10-day IL on May 28, a significant step forward in his recovery from a Grade 1 thumb sprain on his glove hand. Once he's cleared to rejoin the Pirates, Bart should push Jason Delay out of the catching mix.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Resumes playing catch

    Bart (thumb) was spotted playing catch on the field Monday, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The right-handed Bart is on the injured list with a Grade 1 sprain of his left thumb. Though he wasn't wearing his full catching gear Monday, the fact that he had a baseball glove on his injured hand would seem to indicate that the sprained thumb has healed on some level. The Pirates will likely wait and see how Bart responds to additional baseball activities before sending him out on a minor-league rehab assignment.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Moves to injured list

    Bart (thumb) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Kevin Gorman of TribLive.com reports. The 27-year-old was lifted from Sunday's matchup against Atlanta due to the injury and will now be sidelined for at least the next week and a half, though the severity of the injury remains unclear. Grant Koch was called up from Triple-A Indianapolis and will serve as Yasmani Grandal's backup while Bart is unavailable.

    Bart left Sunday's game against Atlanta due to a left thumb injury, Alex Stumpf of MLB.com reports. Bart was pulled before the start of the second inning Sunday, with Yasmani Grandal taking over behind the plate. The severity of the injury is not yet known, but Bart is being evaluated by medical staff, per Noah Hiles of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Bart has gone 9-for-28 with one home run and four RBI in May.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Launches grand slam Thursday

    Bart went 2-for-4 with a double and a grand slam in Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Giants. Bart made quite an impression on his former team, launching a 434-foot grand slam off Mason Black in the fourth inning to put the Pirates ahead 5-1. The 27-year-old Bart's been hot of late, going 9-for-23 (.391) with three extra-base hits in his last seven games on the heels of an 0-for-14 stretch. Overall, he's slashing .267/.362/.517 with four homers, 12 RBI and seven runs scored across 21 games. With Yasmani Grandal nursing a groin injury, Bart could be in line for a regular starting role in the short term.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: On bench in second straight

    Bart is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Rockies. Though he stuck around over Henry Davis -- who was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday -- once Yasmani Grandal (foot) was activated from the 10-day injured list, Bart looks as though he'll operate as the Pirates' No. 2 option behind the plate. He'll take a seat for the second straight day while Grandal logs another start at catcher.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Gets breather Wednesday

    Bart is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics. Bart appears to have wrested the No. 1 catching job away from Henry Davis, but the former will hit the bench for Wednesday's day game after spending eight innings behind the dish in a 5-2 loss Tuesday night. Davis will draw the start Wednesday, but he could be headed to Triple-A Indianapolis if Yasmani Grandal (foot) is reinstated from the 10-day injured list this weekend.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Blasts three-run shot

    Bart went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in Thursday's loss to the Brewers while also drawing a walk. Bart put the Pirates ahead with a three-run shot in the bottom of the first inning, giving the catcher his third home run in just seven games this season. He also drew a two-out walk in the fifth before coming around to score the tying run on a Jack Suwinski double, marking Bart's first game this season with two runs scored. The backstop has hit safely in six of his seven games and continues to make a strong case for more playing time with Henry Davis scuffling at the plate and Yasmani Grandal (foot) still on the 10-day injured list.

  • Pirates' Joey Bart: Poaching starts from Henry Davis

    Bart will start at catcher and bat cleanup Thursday against the Brewers. Bart has been included in the lineup in four of the past six games and appears to have surpassed Henry Davis on the depth chart at catcher. The eventual return of Yasmani Grandal (foot) from the 10-day injured list could cost Bart some playing time, but for now, the 27-year-old should garner the lion's share of starts behind the dish while he's swinging a hot bat. Bart heads into Thursday's game with a 1.119 OPS over 23 plate appearances on the season.

  • 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.
