Barnes only threw 0.1 innings this spring, allowing one hit and striking out one. Barnes, who posted a 5.59 ERA in Double-A New Hampshire last season, is not a player fighting for a spot on the Cubs' major league roster this season. He will likely spend the majority of the year in Double-A again.
Barnes signed a minor league deal with the Cubs on Wednesday, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports. Barnes spent the majority of last season at Double-A, struggling to the tune of a 5.59 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 30 appearances (six starts). The 28-year-old lefty will simply serve as pitching depth within the organization and doesn't figure to factor into the big league club's plans.
