2021 Fantasy Outlook
Barria is an intriguing pitcher, if only for the turnaround he put together in 2020 in the amount he did pitch. Barria closed the 2019 season with many of his indicators in the bottom 10th percentile of the league as hitters had little trouble squaring him up and sending rockets all over the field to the tune of a 6.42 ERA, .274 opponents' average and a 1.44 WHIP. Last season in seven games, he lowered those numbers to 3.62, .221, and 1.11, respectively. Barria took many of those same bad 2019 expected measures from the bottom 10th percentile to the top 10th percentile last season despite the fact he won't light up any radar guns. He effectively pairs his slider and fastball while mixing in changeups and sinkers to keep hitters off balance. Statcast says he most closely aligns to Masahiro Tanaka and Jake Odorizzi based on velocity and movement, yet will come much cheaper on draft day than those two. Read Past Outlooks

$Signed a $60,000 contract with the Angels in April of 2013.
Role could depend on options
PLos Angeles Angels
March 3, 2021
The Angels are waiting to find out whether Barria will be granted an extra year of minor-league options before determining whether he'll open the season on the big-league roster or in the minors, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Barria made five starts during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, and the organization could elect to have him stretch out in the minors to begin the 2021 season to increase its rotation depth. However, that scenario is dependent on the right-hander having another year of options. If Barria is determined to be out of options, he'll need to be placed on the active roster and would likely come out of the bullpen to start the campaign.

Stat Review
How does Jaime Barria compare to other starting pitchers?
This section compares his stats with all starting pitcher seasons from the previous three seasons (minimum 120 innings)*. The bar represents the player's percentile rank. For example, if the bar is halfway across, then the player falls into the 50th percentile for that stat and it would be considered average.

* Exit Velocity, Barrels/BBE %, Balls Hit 95+ MPH %, and Spin Rate are benchmarked against 2019 data (min 120 IP). See here for more exit velocity/barrels stats plus an explanation of current limitations with that data set.
  • K/BB
    Strikeout to walk ratio.
  • K/9
    Average strikeouts per nine innings.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Barria had a winning record and a 3.41 ERA across 26 starts as a 22-year-old rookie in 2018, but the juiced ball was not kind to flyball pitchers. His HR/FB rate essentially doubled and his HR/9 shot from 1.18 to 2.61, one of the 10 worst home-run rates in the majors (min. 50 IP). His Barrel%, xSLG, wOBA and xwOBA on contact all ranked in the bottom 10% in the league. While his K and BB rates both went in the right direction (20.6 K%, 7.4 BB%), it didn't matter given all the home runs against him. Barria ended up riding the shuttle for most of the year and spent some time in the bullpen. His numbers at home were actually pretty good (3.06 ERA, .210 BAA) and he's still very young, but until he shows more consistency in games that matter, Barria can't be trusted as a regular starter. At best, he's a low-end streamer in deep leagues.
Barria enjoyed quite a bit of success in the starting rotation as a 22-year-old rookie, but the peripherals were underwhelming. The righty barely managed two strikeouts for every walk he issued, finishing with a 9.5 K-BB% over 129.1 innings. That was a bottom-20 mark among 116 pitchers with at least 120 innings. Meanwhile, he gave up home runs at a 1.18 HR/9 clip. He had a dramatic reverse platoon split, with same-handed hitters combining for a .268/.358/.466 line against Barria (compared to .216/.275/.339 for lefties). That leaves him little margin for error against lefties. His minor-league track record suggests the control numbers could get better, though a 55.3% first-pitch strike rate and 39.5 Zone% don't portend significant improvement. The one major thing Barria has going for him is opportunity -- the Angels aren't exactly teeming with viable alternatives. We suggest going quality over quantity unless you're desperate for volume.
