Rockies OF Brandon Barnes has four-hit game in win on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes had a big day in the team's 7-3 win over the Phillies on Thursday. Barnes, who had just been recalled from Triple-A on Wednesday, went 4 for 4 with a double, an RBI and a run scored in his first start of the season.

Barnes had a decent season in 2014 when he hit .257 with eight home runs in 292 at-bats. He will likely be a platoon outfielder for the foreseeable future.

Rockies option OF Drew Stubbs to Triple-A; recall OF Barnes
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Rockies have optioned outfielder Drew Stubbs to Triple-A Albuquerque, the team announced on Wednesday. Stubbs has struggled this season to the tune of a .118 batting average (6 for 51). The Rockies are hoping he can find his swing in Triple-A and return to the player that hit .289 with 15 home runs a year ago. 

In a corresponding move, the team called up fellow outfielder Brandon Barnes from Triple-A. Barnes wasn't fairing much better in Albuquerque, as he owns a .205 average and 34 strikeouts in 132 at-bats.

"My numbers weren't what I wanted them to be," Barnes said, per the Denver Post. "But I feel good, I'm in a good place. I always feel good."

Barnes is on the bench for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

Rockies option Rex Brothers, Brandon Barnes
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Rockies optioned pitcher Rex Brothers and outfielder Brandon Barnes to Triple-A Albuquerque and reassigned pitcher Scott Oberg and outfielder Matt McBride to minor-league camp, MLB.com reports.

Brothers racked up 19 saves while posting a 1.74 ERA in 67 1/3 innings with the team in 2013 but was unable to break camp with the team just two seasons later, delivering an 8.22 ERA and 8:6 K:BB ratio in 7 2/3 innings. He also managed a 5.59 ERA in 2014. Barnes received 292 at-bats in his first season with the Rockies in 2014 but hit just .229/.362/.250 this spring.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes displays new swing this spring
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes brought a brand-new swing to spring training that features a high leg kick as he looks to cut down the strikeouts and "be the best version of me," the Denver Post reports.

"I tried to refine who I am and what type of player I am in the box," Barnes said Thursday. "I'm not a guy who's going to hit 30 home runs. I know that. I'm the big guy who needs to be a pest, drive the ball into gaps, hit doubles, use my speed to my advantage, bunt, all those things."

Barnes lost 10 pounds this offseason as he looked to come to camp more athletic and less stiff in the batter's box.

"We have this tremendous athlete, and you see him in the outfield and it shows up daily," manager Walt Weiss said. "But you saw him in the box last season, and there was some stiffness to his approach. And I'm saying, 'Be that guy in the box.' It made sense to him."

Barnes indicated that he's committed to the new approach that pulls the focus away from home runs.

"I had to go back and do some soul-searching to figure out who I was," Barnes said. "I'm the guy who goes out and plays really hard."

Rockies' Brandon Barnes looking to increase speed
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes reported to camp less bulky in an effort to increased his speed, while also working on bunting and running the bases, MLB.com reports.

Barnes is preparing as a player who is confident with his abilities, manager Walt Weiss said.

"He does feel like he belongs; we've had some good conversations already this spring," Weiss said. "I can sense that his confidence level is higher than he was a year ago. His attitude is infectious. He brings a lot of energy and toughness to our club that's very valuable. The other players feed off of it."

Barnes indicated that he's looking to be a smarter hitter this year and has turned to hitting coach Blake Doyle, shortstop Troy Tulowitzki and outfielders Carlos Gonzalez and Corey Dickerson for advice.

The goal is finding a "rock-solid approach," Barnes said. "I have to buy into that."

Barnes hit .257/.293/.425 with eight home runs, 27 RBI and five stolen bases in his first season with the Rockies in 2014.
