Players cut from the Major League team included:
In stints between Double and Triple-A in 2014, Barrett posted a 3.09 ERA and cut his weight down to 220 pounds from 240, according to AZCentral.com.
"I haven't seen how hard I'm going to throw yet, either," he said. "If I sit at 220 and stay strong, I'll probably stay at 220 then."
Barrett is hoping his weight loss will grab some attention from the coaching staff.
"They're going to see that and be like, 'Whoa, this guy looks different. He's trying to fight,'" Barrett said. "That's what I'm going for. It makes a difference."
