RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Barnhart is perfectly acceptable as a backup catcher. He'll draw a walk, he's very good at calling a game and has a great arm. However, he got exposed as a part-time starter splitting duties with Brayan Pena last season, slugging just .326 in 274 plate appearances. Devin Mesoraco will return in 2016, relegating Barnhart back to a caddy role, with Pena having moved on. Even if Mesoraco were to get hurt again and Barnhart takes on more of a role, it's unlikely he will gain even NL-only relevance given the lack of power in his profile.

2015

Barnhart gets high marks for his defensive skills, particularly in his throwing ability, but provides no palpable power. He's your standard backup catcher, only less likely to play as much in 2015 as he did in 2014. He's behind both Devin Mesoraco and Brayan Pena on the Reds' depth chart.
