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: Homers, scores thrice in loss

The catcher has now hit safely in three straight games and has recorded multiple hits in each of his last two.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Goes deep Monday

    Bailey went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a walk against the Cubs in Monday's 7-6 victory. Bailey brought San Francisco to within two runs with his eighth-inning solo blast. It was just his second extra-base hit over his past 16 contests, a span in which he's batted .264 (14-for-53).

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Three hits in Wednesday's win

    Bailey went 3-for-5 with a double, one RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's 9-5 extra-inning win over the Pirates. This was Bailey's first start since he was activated from the concussion injured list Tuesday. He appeared off the bench in that contest, going 0-for-1. Bailey went on the IL twice due to the concussion, but he looks to have the all-clear this time and should resume a starting role behind the plate over Curt Casali. Bailey is slashing .295/.350/.466 with three home runs, 12 RBI, 12 runs scored, six doubles and one stolen base across 101 plate appearances this season.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Back on concussion IL

    The Giants placed Bailey on the 7-day concussion injured list Tuesday. Bailey missed the Giants' last two games due to an illness, and he met with a team doctor Monday to determine whether or not his illness was related to the concussion he suffered earlier in May. He'll now return to the 7-day IL and will be eligible to return to action Sunday, though the Giants will likely be more cautious this time around before activating him. Blake Sabol will take over as San Francisco's primary catcher while Bailey is out, and Marco Luciano will come up from Triple-A Sacramento to fill the open roster spot.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Homers, doubles twice Saturday

    Bailey went 4-for-4 with two doubles and a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Diamondbacks. It's the second time in Bailey's relatively brief big-league career that he's tallied three extra-base hits in one game, as he had two doubles and a triple in a contest last June in Colorado. The four hits also tied a career high, as he did it once before last May in Milwaukee. Bailey's home run Saturday was a 407-foot shot which found McCovey Cove beyond the right-field stands.

  • Giants' Patrick Bailey: Picks up first steal

    Bailey went 1-for-3 with a walk and a stolen base in Wednesday's 3-1 win over the Marlins. Bailey's steal was his first of 2024, matching his total from 97 contests in 2023. As a catcher, speed is often not high on the list of priorities. He's cooled off after posting three multi-hit efforts over his first five games this season, but Bailey is still batting .286 with a .765 OPS, one home run, four RBI, three runs scored and two doubles over 51 plate appearances.

  • 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.
