RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Though he was initially expected to serve in a backup capacity, Barnhart was pushed to the primary role behind the plate following another injury to Devin Mesoraco. Barnhart ended up starting 106 games behind the dish for the Reds in 2016, doing a serviceable job at the plate with career-best marks in average, home runs and RBI. True to his career form, the switch-hitter was much better hitting from the left side, as he hit .271 against righties compared to just .207 against southpaws. Mesoraco is expected to return to full-time catching duties in 2017, but Barnhart will be waiting in the wings in case Mesoraco's injury issues rear their ugly head yet again.

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.
