Hello and happy Tuesday.

The San Francisco Giants optioned Joey Bart on Sunday night, which should come as no surprise. Even with Buster Posey out with an injury, the Giants have two healthy catchers — Curt Casali and Chadwick Tromp — and don’t play again until Friday. The team has made Bart’s development a huge priority, and he’ll get to keep playing in Sacramento with the AAA team, rather than sit at home waiting for the Giants to play again.

But the Giants wanted to reward his strong season with a game over the weekend, and he rewarded them back with a two-hit showing.

Everyone wins. We’ll likely be seeing him again soon.
