After Monster July, Giants Top Prospect Joey Bart Named Northwest League Player of the Month

Joey Bart's first month in pro baseball couldn't have gone much better.

On June 4, Bart was taken with the No. 2 overall pick by the Giants. Two weeks later, he got a signing bonus of $7.025 million, the largest upfront bonus ever for a position player. On Monday, Bart was named Northwest League Player of the Month for July.

In 21 games with the Salem-Keizer Volcanoes during July, Bart lived up to the hype as he hit .333/.379/.747 with nine doubles, nine home runs and 24 RBI.

Baseball America and MLB Pipeline have already elevated Bart to the No. 1 prospect in the Giants' organization.

So far in August, the Georgia Tech product is hitting .412/.474/.765 with two doubles and three RBI.
