Barria was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a right shoulder impingement. The injury was initially described as arm fatigue after Barria exited Saturday's start early, but the shoulder impingement and IL designation will end his 2021 season. Barria posted a 4.61 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 56.2 innings this season, and 11 of his 13 appearances were starts. Sam Selman was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to fill Barria's roster spot.
Barria was removed from Saturday's start against the Mariners due to right arm fatigue. Barria delivered two scoreless frames before being lifted from Saturday's contest due to the injury. He allowed three hits without a strikeout or walk. The 25-year-old lines up for one more start next weekend in Seattle, though this arm issue could affect his availability for that outing.
Barria (2-4) was tagged with the loss Monday against the Astros after allowing two runs on 10 hits while fanning five across 5.1 innings. Barria gave up a season-worst mark in hits in this outing, and while he was able to limit the damage once again, he allowed hard contact all game long. He hasn't been able to clinch a win since the beginning of August, posting a 0-4 record with a 5.14 ERA over his last eight appearances. On the bright side, he has given up two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts.
Barria didn't factor into the decision Sunday against the Astros after tossing four innings of one-run ball, allowing four hits and four walks while fanning six. Barria hasn't won a game since late July, but at the very least, he managed to extend his streak of appearances where he's been able to limit the damage. He has given up two or fewer runs in three of his last four appearances and owns a 3.38 ERA across 18.2 innings in that stretch.
Barria (2-3) allowed three runs on eight hits while striking out three over seven innings as he lost to the Rangers on Monday. Barria allowed the Rangers to score a run in both the first and second inning while allowing six of eight hits against him during those early frames. Barria then went on to retire 14 straight batters before the Rangers got to him again in the seventh for a third run. The 24-year-old didn't walk anyone for just the second time this year, but Barria has managed to top three strikeouts just twice in eight starts this year. He now owns a 5.16 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 24:15 K:BB over 45.1 innings.
