RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Barnes came over from the Marlins in the blockbuster deal involving Dee Gordon and quickly played his way into the organization's good graces. In 292 Triple-A at-bats, Barnes hit a healthy .315/.389/.479 with nine home runs and a surprising 12 stolen bases. That athleticism allowed him to make one-game appearances at second base and third base, but his real long-term home is likely behind the plate. Barnes made his big league debut in May, but ultimately received just 29 MLB at-bats due to the presence of Yasmani Grandal and A.J. Ellis. Going forward, Barnes' OBP skills and average power would seem to point to him at least being an average big league offensive catcher. Ellis turns 35 this year, so Barnes could eventually slot in as the No. 2 catcher while making the occasional appearance elsewhere on the diamond. That said, it would not be a surprise to see him start in Triple-A and await an opening.

2015

Barnes received time at High-A Jupiter and Double-A Jacksonville in 2014, seeing 78 games at the higher level and carrying an impressive .296/.406/.507 line. At age-24, the numbers are less surprising from a steady college bat with his level of experience, but Barnes' ability to serve as a useful catcher makes him intriguing as a potential super utility player if he continues to hit. Barnes played exclusively as a catcher at High-A last season, but he saw time at second base and third base at Double-A. A career .298/.390/.431 hitter in the minors, Barnes showed more pop at Jacksonville last season, and he now has a .503 slugging percentage at the level. Traded to the Dodgers in December, Barnes' path to the big leagues is more obstructed -- at least temporarily -- in Los Angeles.
