RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Barnes bounced around between Cleveland and Triple-A Columbus and had enough success (1.26 WHIP, 7.6 K/9 in 16 relief appearances) to enter into the mix for a bullpen spot this spring as the team looks to replace Tony Sipp. It's unclear if the Indians still view him as a starter or reliever as he made just three starts in 31 minor league appearances last season after filling a starting role in each of the two previous seasons. If the Indians still view him as a starter his chances to break camp with the team will take a hit.

2012

Barnes was cobbling together a nice debut season at Triple-A Columbus before a knee injury ended his season in July. The 6-foot-4 lefty has a nice arsenal of secondary pitches to complement his low-90s fastball but struggles with the long ball when his command wavers. He'll be back at Triple-A and could see some time in Cleveland later in the year if he can build on his effort from last season. Considering that he was able to strike out more than a batter per inning (9.20 K/9IP) last season, he should be on the radar of those in deeper formats upon promotion to the big leagues.

2011

Barnes struggled in his first real exposure to Double-A, posting a 5.22 ERA for Akron. He struggled with the long ball (15 homers in 138 innings) and control (58 walks) and has failed to meet expectations since coming over from the Giants. Fortunately, Barnes was one of the better starting pitchers in the Arizona Fall League, where he impressed and posted a 28:7 K:BB without allowing a home run in a hitter-friendly environment while posting a 3.65 ERA over 24.2 innings. He's still just 23 but will need to show more at Double-A before garnering additional attention.

2010

Barnes excelled at High-A San Jose (1.133 WHIP and a 2.85 ERA with 99 K in 98 innings) for the Giants before joining the Cleveland organization in the Michael Aubrey trade. He struggled in a short stint with High-A Kinston but is still a nice mid-grade prospect. He doesn't have lights out stuff so it'll be interesting to see how he handles the transition to Double-A.
