Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Enters Thursday lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is in the Dodgers' Thursday lineup against the Giants, hitting sixth and playing catcher, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.

Barnes replaces Yasmani Grandal during the afternoon game against southpaw Matt Moore. He could be a sneaky daily fantasy play considering the platoon advantage.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Making Thursday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is behind the plate and batting eighth in the Dodgers' lineup Thursday against the Padres, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports.

Barnes is spelling Yasmani Grandal in the getaway afternoon game. While he'll earn many a start each month and offers some intrigue in deep fantasy leagues -- mainly NL-only -- at the dish, he'll likely only get one start per week under most circumstances.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Officially wins backup catcher job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Bobby Wilson being reassigned to the minors, Barnes has officially won the Dodgers' backup catcher job out of camp, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports.

The Dodgers plan on using Yasmani Grandal as more than just a platoon catcher this season, so Barnes will be limited to a start or two per week. The 27-year-old won't generate fantasy interest unless Grandal were to go down to injury.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Favorite to win backup catcher job
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is the favorite to win the backup catcher job out of spring training.

Barnes didn't do much in his limited playing time last season, slashing a meager .156/.270/.188 in 37 plate appearances. That was a small sample size, and there is hope for his bat after he slashed .295/.380/.443 with Triple-A Oklahoma City last season. With Carlos Ruiz gone, Barnes will handle primary backup duties for Yasmani Grandal.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Will receive September call-up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Barnes would be recalled from the minors when rosters expand Sept. 1, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Barnes will serve as the Dodgers' No. 3 catcher behind Yasmani Grandal and Carlos Ruiz while also assuming a utility role around the infield. Everyday at-bats won't be in the offing for Barnes, who has slashed .292/.378/.435 over 377 plate appearances at Triple-A Oklahoma City, but given how many injuries the Dodgers have suffered throughout this season, the quality depth he provides won't be taken for granted.
