SAN FRANCISCO -- A strong summer has carried over for the Giants' top prospect. 

Catcher Joey Bart was named the Arizona Fall League Player of the Week after hitting two homers in the first week of action. Bart was 5-for-9 at the plate with three extra-base hits, four RBI and three walks. He also is getting strong reviews defensively.

Bart, 22, hit .278 with 16 homers across two levels this season and finished his first full pro year in Double-A. He should get plenty of at-bats for the Giants next spring and is on track to make his MLB debut at some point in 2020. 

Outfielder Heliot Ramos, also playing in the AFL, went 3-for-16 last week with six strikeouts. Right-hander Tristan Beck, acquired in the Mark Melancon deal, gave up a run in two innings of his AFL debut.
