RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
2013
  1. Brandon Barnes 2016 Preseason Outlook
    Barnes began the year with Triple-A Albuquerque despite spending two consecutive years in the majors. He didn't help his case to be on the parent club, as he hit a horrid .205 in 143 plate appearances. Despite the rough start, he was called up in late May, and was allotted plenty of playing time throughout the year due to the injury troubles of Corey Dickerson. He produced better than in Triple-A, posting a .251/.314/.341 slash line in 281 plate appearances, but struggled toward the end of the season. Barnes should be in line to be the fourth outfielder for the Rockies in 2016, but he'll have to produce more at the plate (especially away from the hitter-friendly Coors Field) if he wants to see more consistent playing time.
  2. Brandon Barnes 2015 Preseason Outlook
    Acquired last winter as a throw-in to the deal that sent Dexter Fowler to the Astros, Barnes quickly established himself as an indispensable reserve for the Rockies. He supplied an .838 OPS in April and remained manager Walt Weiss’ go-to bench bat throughout the season, finishing with an astounding .338/.378/.610 line over 85 plate appearances as a reserve, delivering three of his eight homers and all four of his triples in that capacity. However, injuries to Carlos Gonzalez and Michael Cuddyer ultimately forced Barnes into more extensive action than was probably desired, and his offensive flaws were exposed as his sample size increased. While Barnes never stopped hitting at his home park, he was dreadful in the less favorable road environs, posting a dismal .222/.255/.316 line over 171 plate appearances away from Coors Field. With better health from their starting outfielders this season, the Rockies will deploy Barnes more frequently in the roles he thrived in last season -- as a late-inning pinch-hitter and defensive replacement.
  3. Brandon Barnes 2014 Preseason Outlook
    Barnes got his first extended look in the majors last year when Justin Maxwell went down with an injury and was subsequently traded. Known more for his prowess on defense, where he can play all three outfield positions, Barnes underwhelmed as a hitter with a .240/.289/.346 line over 445 plate appearances, striking out 28.5 percent of the time. He does offer slight power (eight home runs) and modest speed (11 steals), but he was also caught 11 times on the basepaths and his plate discipline (0.17 BB/K) was well below his minor league average (0.31). Barnes will likely be given the chance to compete for a reserve spot in the Colorado outfield in 2014, after being acquired by the Rockies as part of the Dexter Fowler deal in December.
  4. Brandon Barnes 2013 Preseason Outlook
    It looked like the eight-year minor league veteran was finally putting it all together in the minors, where he hit a combined .316/.374/.506 and earned his first callup at age 26. That success did not exactly translate when he got to Houston. Barnes played all three outfield positions at one time or another, but with a .515 OPS, even a perfect fielding percentage (which Barnes had) does not guarantee him playing time. Barnes' growth in the minors last season should guarantee him a long look during spring training, but more likely than not, the Astros will spend the next year trying to replace him with someone younger.
