2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

A .254/.299/.354 line doesn't pay the bills except when it comes from an elite defensive second baseman - and that's a fair description for Barney whose 13.1 UZR led MLB at his position. That defensive skill set will keep his bat in the lineup, and the volume should yield decent counting stats in deeper leagues - seven homers, six steals and 73 runs have some use. Barney turned 27 in November, and given his strong contact rate and improving batting eye, it should not surprise if he hits .275 or higher.

2012

A long shot to win the second-base job last year, Barney beat out Jeff Baker and Blake DeWitt to be the Cubs' everyday starter as a rookie. His .276/.313/.353 line isn't eye-popping, however, and Barney has never run all that much - nine steals in 529 at-bats last year, and 11 in 479 Triple-A at-bats in 2010. Moreover, Barney doesn't hit for power or draw walks. He is an excellent contact hitter, though, and his defense makes him the favorite the begin the season as the team's starter. At 26, Barney can still get better, but he's probably not a high ceiling player.

2011

Barney got a cup of coffee in September and didn't hit. He can play second, short and third, and he runs well (though he hasn't translated his raw speed into base-stealing ability), so he'll be considered for a utility role. Otherwise, his skill set - not much power or patience, good contact skills - doesn't jump out.
