RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Ricky Barrett.
Barrett's season ended in late July due to an injury to his pitching elbow. Before that, he showed progress and struck out over a batter per inning. He could have a future as a lefty reliever in the big leagues. He'll need to show he's healthy next spring, but could get called up if injuries strike in the Twins' bullpen.
Barrett struggled after his promotion to Triple-A and in the Arizona Fall League (9.00 ERA with a 9/13 K/BB ratio) and was exposed to the Rule 5 draft. He's a lefty that can throw in the mid-90s, but control has always been a problem (56 walks in 82 2/3 innings combined last season). He'll need a sharp turnaround to figure into Minnesota's plans
