Barnhart was slated to operate as the Reds' secondary catching option in 2017, but was quickly thrust into the starting role when the oft-injured Devin Mesoraco was placed on the disabled list prior to Opening Day. Mesoraco was able to return in late April, but he continued to battle a myriad of injuries throughout the campaign, which allowed Barnhart to appear in a career-high 121 contests. The 26-year-old held his own in the batter's box, slashing .270/.347/.403 with seven home runs and 44 RBI, but provided a majority of his value behind the plate as one of the National League's premier defensive backstops. Impressed with his performance, the Reds inked Barnhart to a four-year, $16 million extension during the season. Barnhart will enter 2018 as the primary option ahead of Mesoraco, but the modest pop limits his appeal.

  2. Tucker Barnhart 2017 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  3. Tucker Barnhart 2016 Preseason Outlook
    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.
  4. Tucker Barnhart 2015 Preseason Outlook
    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.
