  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Returns to lineup Sunday

    After a day off Saturday, Barnhart will return for the series finale Sunday, with Eric Haase headed back to the bench. Barnhart is batting .271 this season, though he's yet to hit a home run and has only three RBI, so he hasn't been particularly productive with his hits.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Doubles, drives in one Thursday

    Barnhart went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI in Thursday's loss to the Athletics.

    Barnhart isn't a flashy player, but he's now batting .284 this season, though he only has three RBI in 23 games. He's at least hitting better than fellow backstop Eric Haase, who's stuck with a .140 batting average. That should keep Barnhart in the lineup as the team's catcher most days.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Sitting for Game 2 of twin bill

    Barnhart is out of the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the Pirates, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Barnhart will sit Saturday against the Dodgers.

    Barnhart had just two hits in his first seven games of the year but has since gone 8-for-20 in his last six games. He'll get a rest Saturday as Dustin Garneau takes over behind the plate.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Records two hits in loss

    Barnhart went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Dodgers.

    Barnhart isn't really driving the ball, as he only has one double and no home runs so far this season. However, the catcher is finding ways to reach base, as he's batting .278 to go along with a .366 on-base percentage. Singles and walks aren't the most exciting, but Barnhart is at least providing some fantasy value, especially because he's locked into a regular role with the Tigers.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Not starting Wednesday

    Barnhart isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Twins.

    Barnhart will get a breather after he went 2-for-6 with a double, two runs and two strikeouts in his last two appearances. Eric Haase will start behind the dish and bat eighth.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Two-hit effort in loss

    Barnhart went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored in Sunday's loss to the Rockies.

    Barnhart had two of Detroit's seven hits on the day, including his first double of the season. The two-hit effort pushed the catcher's batting average to .259, which would actually be his best mark since hitting .270 for the Reds back in 2017. Barnhart will continue to be more valuable for his defensive work, with some occasional offensive production here and there.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Returns to lineup Sunday

    Barnhart is starting at catcher and batting eighth in Sunday's game against the Rockies.

    Barnhart rested in the second game of Saturday's doubleheader but will return to action Sunday. The veteran catcher has yet to really get going with a .574 OPS and no home runs or RBI through nine games, though he should continue to see regular playing time with Eric Haase on hand to spell him. Haase is starting in left field Sunday.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Resting for night game

    Barnhart is not in the lineup for the second half of Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Barnhart went 2-for-5 in the afternoon game. He'll sit against southpaw Austin Gomber in the nightcap, as he did against the three previous lefties the Tigers faced this season.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Out against southpaw

    Barnhart is not in Thursday's lineup against the Yankees.

    He'll head to the bench with lefty Jordan Montgomery on the hill for the Yankees. Barnhart appears to be in a strict platoon to start the season. The righty-hitting Eric Haase gets the start behind the dish.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Sits against southpaw

    Barnhart isn't starting Saturday's game against the Royals.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Resting against lefty

    Barnhart is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

    The quick turnaround for Tuesday's 1:10 p.m. ET first pitch in addition to Boston starting a lefty (Rich Hill) likely explains why Barnhart -- a switch-hitter who is more comfortable batting from the left side -- is taking a seat. Dustin Garneau will fill in behind the dish for Barnhart, who has only produced one hit through nine plate appearances but has been masterful in guiding the Tigers' young pitching staff. Barnhart's game-calling savvy was a key reason why right-hander Matt Manning delivered the best start of his young career in Monday's 3-1 win.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Not starting Saturday

    Barnhart isn't starting Saturday's game against the White Sox, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Barnhart drew the start behind the dish Friday and went 0-for-2 with a strikeout. Eric Haase will start behind the dish and bat seventh after homering on Opening Day.

  • Tigers' Tucker Barnhart: Open to extension

    Barnhart said he would be open to an extension with the Tigers, though no formal contract talks have taken place, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Barnhart was traded to the Tigers in November, and the team then exercised his club option for 2022. However, the catcher is open to sticking around past this season, and the organization has expressed some interest in finding a deal as well. For the time being, Barnhart will look to make a good first impression with his new team in the hopes of increasing the value of a potential new contract.
