2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Barnette returned to the States in 2016 following a five-year stint in Japan, and although he wasn't particularly dominant, there's no denying that he was effective as a member of the Rangers' bullpen. Despite not amassing a huge number of strikeouts, the right-hander displayed good control and, with the good fortune of an 85 percent strand rate, tallied 15 holds on the season. Barnette is on the wrong side of 30 and his FIP sat over a run above his actual ERA, but his 2016 performance has likely earned him a steady role in Texas' bullpen to begin the 2017 season. However, with the numerous options ahead of him in the pecking order, Barnette's role has little room for growth. He will need to keep relying on holds to garner any real value.

2016

Barnette spent four years in the Diamondbacks system before moving to Japan's Yakult Swallows in 2010. After initially struggling as a starter, Barnette found success in the bullpen, culminating in a 1.29 ERA, 41-save performance in 2015. Barnette's style evolved quite a bit over his six seasons in Japan, and in 2015 he added a pause at the height of his delivery a very Japanese touch. His fastball runs from 90-95 mph and will touch 97. He also features a tight slider and a solid changeup. Look for him to start out in a low-leverage role in a loaded Rangers bullpen after signing a two-year deal in December, with the potential to move to the later innings if his stuff translates against big league hitters.
