RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

It looked like the eight-year minor league veteran was finally putting it all together in the minors, where he hit a combined .316/.374/.506 and earned his first callup at age 26. That success did not exactly translate when he got to Houston. Barnes played all three outfield positions at one time or another, but with a .515 OPS, even a perfect fielding percentage (which Barnes had) does not guarantee him playing time. Barnes' growth in the minors last season should guarantee him a long look during spring training, but more likely than not, the Astros will spend the next year trying to replace him with someone younger.
