Barnes is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays. Barnes is hitting a measly .231 with no home runs and seven RBI in 41 games and will take the night off in favor of Ryan Raburn who has posted a .242/.393/.543 line with eight home runs and 29 RBI in 82 games this season.
Barnes is in the lineup and batting eighth for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. The 30-year-old has been hot lately, hitting .455/.455/.545 with four runs and a stolen base over his last three games, and will get the start in left field Monday in place of Ryan Raburn.
Barnes went 3-for-4 with a double and three runs in Saturday's 11-6 victory over the D-backs. Recalled from Triple-A just a little over a week ago, Barnes provided his second multi-hit effort of the season, and first since his most recent call-up. Filling in for Gerardo Parra (ankle) while the latter is on the DL, the 30-year-old is slashing .263/.300/.316 over 19 at-bats since returning to the big leagues.
Barnes was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. Barnes was recalled due to Gerardo Parra landing on the 15-day DL with a high ankle sprain. The 30-year-old had been hitting .277/.333/.365 with Albuquerque, and is 6-for-31 with two doubles and one triple during his time with the Rockies this year. Barnes will get a chance to share in the outfield duties with Ryan Raburn while Parra is out.
Barnes was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports. With the Rockies activating Charlie Blackmon off the DL on Friday, Barnes was the logical player to be sent down to Triple-A given the club's crowded outfield situation. Barnes slashed .194/.242/.323 with seven strikeouts in 31 at-bats during his stint with the big league club.
