San Francisco Giants: Joey Bart suffers fractured thumb in AFL

The San Francisco Giants have one of the top prospects in all of baseball in catcher Joey Bart.

The No. 2 pick in the 2018 MLB draft was limited to 79 games in his first full pro season after he suffered a fractured hand on a hit-by-pitch on April 15.

Despite the time missed, he still finished with a .278/.328/.495 line in 338 plate appearances, slugging 14 doubles and 16 home runs while reaching the Double-A level.

In order to make up for the developmental time he lost to that injury, Bart was sent to the Arizona Fall League where he would have a chance to log some additional at-bats against some of the best prospects in baseball.
