Perhaps a bit under the radar thanks to playing with a stacked IMG Academy team that includes multiple day one prospects, Bartlett has been seen by plenty of high-level evaluators this spring, and for the most part he’s been the best in-game hitter on the team. Bartlett has plenty of strength in his 6-foot-2, 210-pound frame and has easy plus raw power in batting practice that has translated well in games. He has competitive at-bats and can catch up with high-end velocity, though it’s a strength-based swing rather than twitchy bat speed. Bartlett has caught at times for IMG Academy this spring, though he mostly plays first base and is a better fit there at the next level with lots of improvement needed to stick at catcher. Bartlett is originally from the West Coast and is committed to Arizona.
