SF Giants find new home, trade partner for Joey Bart

LOS ANGELES — It didn’t take long for the San Francisco Giants to find a suitor for Joey Bart.

Bart, the former No. 2 overall pick who was designated for assignment Sunday, was traded Tuesday to the Pittsburgh Pirates, who parted with a 21-year-old pitching prospect for the privilege of topping the wire. waiver.

San Francisco received right-hander Austin Strickland, the Pirates’ eighth-round pick in last year’s draft. He has yet to throw professional ball.
