    • Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Not in Game 3 lineup
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barnes is out of the starting lineup for Game 3 of the World Series against Boston on Friday. Manager Dave Roberts will give Yasmani Grandal his first start of the series during Friday's game, citing the catcher's arm strength and matchup versus right-hander Rich Porcello. During the first two games in Boston, Barnes failed to collect a hit, going 0-for-4 in four plate appearances.

    • Barnes will draw another start behind the plate for Game 6 of the NLCS against Milwaukee on Friday, Jorge Castillo of The Los Angeles Times reports. This will mark his third straight start in the lineup after catching Rich Hill and Clayton Kershaw on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively. The Dodgers have claimed victories in each of the three starts Barnes has made this series, and he's proven to be the security blanket for manager Dave Roberts in light of Yasmani Grandal's costly errors.

    • Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Draws start in Game 4
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barnes will start at catcher in Game 4 of the NLCS against Milwaukee on Tuesday, David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports reports. Barnes started behind the dish in Game 2 of the NLCS and went 0-for-3 with a walk and an RBI, and after yet another miserable performance by Yasmani Grandal in Game 3, Barnes will get the opportunity to play. He'll be tasked with catching Rich Hill.

    • Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Smacks third homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barnes went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run Sunday against the Padres. Barnes took Joey Lucchesi deep in the fourth inning to record his third home run of the season. The long ball was Barnes' second in his past nine appearances -- dating back to Sept. 4 -- illustrating just how little he has produced this season. Across 236 plate appearances, he's hit just .202/.328/.273.

    • Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Drives in three
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barnes went 1-for-2 with a home run, three RBI and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Mets. Barnes helped the Dodgers climb out of a 4-0 hole with a two-run homer in the third before bringing home the tying run in the fourth. Despite the big day, the backstop is hitting just .207 and remains firmly entrenched behind Yasmani Grandal on the depth chart.
