RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Barnes was taken in the first-round of the pitching-rich 2011 draft with the 19th overall pick by the Red Sox. As a college pitcher at the University of Connecticut, the Red Sox had ample opportunity to scout him. Because he signed close to the deadline, Barnes didn't make his professional debut last year, so he might be a smidge behind some of his contemporaries. But he's also polished enough to advance pretty quickly through the lower levels of the minors. He frequently works in the 93-95 mph range with his fastball and he throws four pitches (fastball, change, curveball, slider) regularly.
