The fighters have remembered the top view Joey Bart and optional starter Logan Webb to Triple-A, per. MLB.com’s Maria I. Guardado (via Twitter).
With Buster Posey lands on the 10-day injury list, it’s definitely reason Bart could have the option of some playing time. In fact, though, it looks like this move is about at least as much about getting Webb some work in Triple-A during the All-Star break as it is about replacing Posey on the list. Both funds are likely to be short-term placements, suggests Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle (via Twitter).
As much as fans might want to look at Bart, the second overall pick of the 201
Bart, 24, has a record appearance this season to go with 111 trips in the 2020 campaign. He has hit .231 / .286 / .317 for his career so far. He has done more than enough to prove his worth with the Sacramento River Cats this year, however, cutting down .338 / .400 / .581 in 150 record appearances in Triple-A.
As for Webb, the 24-year-old right-hander has spent much of the year in rotation, making 11 starts for a 3.63 ERA / 3.15 FIP over 52 innings. Webb has been somewhat on the outside of the rotation picture for much of the season, but as much as the Giants have wanted to try him in a multi-inning relief role, injuries have kept Webb in rotation as long as he has been healthy. It will take more than a week until the Giants need a fifth starter again, so Webb will be able to get some work during the All-Star break while in Sacramento.
In other Giants news, outfielder Mike Tauchman will begin a rehabilitation mission in Triple-A today, Guardado notes. Tauchman has been out since June 30 with a sprained knee.
