Player Outlook
Patrick Bailey slashed an uninspiring .225/.342/.419 at the High-A level in 2022 and entered the 2023 campaign behind Joey Bart and Roberto Perez, among others, on the Giants' catching depth chart. Needless to say, he didn't really seem to be on the fantasy radar heading into last season. As it turned out, he was promoted before the end of May and made a terrific first impression in batting .322/.347/.557 with five homers over his first 33 major-league contests. Although he continued to provide excellent defense, Bailey crashed hard at the plate the rest of the way with a .503 OPS and 29.1 percent strikeout rate from July on. A 10 percent barrel rate was nice to see, but Bailey's strikeout and walk rates were both in the 17th percentile and the switch-hitter sported just a .557 OPS against righties. His defense should provide job security, but Bailey should be reserved only for two-catcher leagues in fantasy.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Resting Saturday

    Bailey isn't in the Giants' lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres, Jeff Sanders of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Goes deep in loss

    Bailey went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers. Bailey accounted for two of San Francisco's five hits in the contest, and he produced the team's first run with his solo shot in the third inning. The backstop has collected multiple hits in three of his five games so far and is slashing .375/.444/.563 through 19 plate appearances. Bailey is locked in as the Giants' primary backstop, but he'll need to show a longer run of offensive success to make more than a ripple in fantasy circles after he slashed just .233/.285/.359 with a 28.3 percent strikeout rate over 353 plate appearances as a rookie last year.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Gets Monday off

    Bailey isn't in the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bailey has collected two hits in two of his first three games of the season, but he'll get a breather in the first game of the series against LA unless he's called upon to pinch hit. Tom Murphy draws the start behind the dish and will bat sixth in Bailey's place.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: In Wednesday's lineup

    Bailey (hand) is starting at catcher and batting seventh for the Giants in Wednesday's Cactus League game versus the Angels, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bailey went more than a week in between games after taking a foul tip off his right hand, but he's fully recovered now. The young catcher is 2-for-11 with one home run and a 4:4 K:BB over six contests this spring.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Day-to-day with hand injury

    Manager Bob Melvin said Wednesday that Bailey (hand) will be unavailable to play for a few days, Shayna Rubin of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bailey avoided any fractures when he took a foul ball off his right hand in Cactus League action Tuesday, but he's dealing with some swelling and discoloration and is unable to make a fist. He'll undergo treatment and will rest a bit before returning to spring games.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Takes seat Friday

    Bailey is out of the lineup Friday against the Dodgers. Blake Sabol will catch and bat eighth for the Giants. Bailey has enjoyed some promising stretches this season, but the 24-year-old is slashing just .127/.172/.146 with 21 strikeouts in 58 plate appearances since the beginning of September.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Taking seat Friday

    Bailey is absent from the lineup for Friday's contest against Atlanta, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. Atlanta is starting Spencer Strider, so Bailey probably didn't put up too much of a fight when he was told he was getting a day off. Blake Sabol will do the catching for Logan Webb.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Delivers go-ahead knock

    Bailey went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk, three RBI and a run scored in Monday's 8-3 win over the Angels. Bailey opened the scoring with an RBI single in the fourth inning and added a two-run double in the ninth to put the Giants ahead for good. This was his fourth multi-hit effort in his last seven games, a span in which he's gone 7-for-21 (.333). The rookie catcher continues to impress defensively while holding his own with a .262/.307/.414 slash line, five home runs, 35 RBI, 19 runs scored, 15 doubles and a stolen base through 61 contests this season.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Resting Saturday

    Bailey will be on the bench Saturday against the Nationals, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bailey burst onto the scene with a .904 OPS in his first 33 games, but he's hit a wall since the start of July. In 14 games this month, he's hitting .125/.176/.167 with 17 strikeouts and just one walk. Blake Sabol starts behind the plate for the fourth time in nine games since the All-Star break.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Notches first big-league steal

    Bailey went 1-for-5 with one RBI, a stolen base and one run scored in Friday's 6-4 win over the Pirates. Bailey was effective on both sides of the stolen-base equation Friday, as he also threw out Tucupita Marcano in the third inning. Bailey's theft was the first in his career, and as a catcher, he shouldn't be expected to run frequently. He's also slashing .290/.320/.483 with five home runs, 27 RBI, 15 runs scored, 11 doubles and a triple over 41 contests, though he's hitting a light .167 in July.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Belts go-ahead homer

    Bailey went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in Friday's win against the Mets. Bailey's eighth-inning shot gave the Giants the late lead. He's gone 11-for-29 (.379) with five extra-base hits and six RBI over his last eight games. The rookie catcher is now slashing .322/.347/.557 with five homers in 33 career MLB games.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Mashes fourth homer

    Bailey went 2-for-3 with a two-run home run and a walk in Friday's 8-5 win over the Diamondbacks. Bailey is off to a good start since getting called up to the big leagues May 19. The 2020 first-round pick is slashing .330/.361/.560 so far, and he is quickly proving to be a worthy fantasy option. His four total homers aren't eye-popping, but his contact hitting has been excellent, as he has hits in 10 of his 15 contests.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Bailey is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dodgers, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Bailey started the past five games and will receive a well-deserved day off Sunday. Blake Sabol will take over behind the plate and bat seventh.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Swats third homer

    Bailey went 2-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 11-3 win over the Cardinals. He launched a solo shot off Genesis Cabrera in the sixth inning, going back-to-back with Mike Yastrzemski to blow open what had been a 6-2 game. Bailey continues to solidify his hold on the Giants' starting job behind the plate, and since his promotion in mid-May he's slashing .323/.353/.585 through 70 plate appearances with three homers and 16 RBI. His 3:19 BB:K and .419 BABIP suggest there will be regression coming for his batting average, however -- which wouldn't be a shocking development for a 24-year-old who batted .225 in High-A only last year.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Three extra-base hits in win

    Bailey went 3-for-5 with two doubles, one triple, one RBI and two runs scored in Tuesday's 10-4 win over the Rockies. Bailey took advantage of the Colorado air to pummel some extra-base hits. The catcher has logged four multi-hit efforts over his last nine contests, and he continues to see regular playing time behind the dish. He's also struck out 11 times over his last six games, and he's at a 31.6 percent strikeout rate on the year. Bailey has added a strong .309/.321/.545 slash line with two home runs, 13 RBI, six runs scored, five doubles and a triple in 15 games. It's unclear if Bailey's shown enough to stay in the majors once Joey Bart (groin) is activated from the injured list.
