Giants Designate Joe McCarthy

The Giants announced that they’ve designated outfielder Joe McCarthy for assignment to make room for just-promoted catcher Joey Bart. They also optioned catcher Tyler Heineman.

McCarthy was a 2015 fifth-round pick of the Rays, and though he became a decently regarded prospect with the franchise, he struggled with their Triple-A affiliate last season. Tampa Bay then traded McCarthy to the Giants for lefty Jacob Lopez at last year’s deadline.

During his first action with the San Francisco organization in 2019, McCarthy batted a terrible .165/.247/.241 in 89 Triple-A plate appearances. While he still managed to open 2020 as San Francisco’s starting right fielder, McCarthy was unable to take advantage of the opportunity over a mere 10 PA, as he struck out five times and failed to collect a hit.
