Yeah, he's starting to get his K rate somewhat in control and he's shown that he just nails the ball when he makes contact. Dude absolutely has some elite elite power, especially for a catcher.
What's interesting is he hasn't taken a BB in the 2nd half of the season, but has his K rate to 29.7% as opposed to 43.6 in the first half. So I wonder if they're just having him relax his approach and just say "Go swing away" rather than try to be a super plate discipline guy and get yourself in bad 2 strike counts all the time.
Regardless, big 2 months for Joey Bart. His defense is already good, just need to have some confidence that his stick is playable heading into next year.
What's crazy is outside that first game blow-up where he gave up 3 ER, he's only given up 12 ER the rest of the season in 44 innings. Still needs a little work on his control, but he's got all the tools to be a top 5 closer. Elite, elite stuff.
