Top Danny Barnes News

  • Danny Barnes: Ends playing career

    The Mets announced Friday that Barnes joined the organization's MLB coaching staff as an assistant, signaling the end of his playing career, Anthony DiComo of reports.

    The 32-year-old reliever spent parts of three seasons in the big leagues from 2016 through 2018, all with the Blue Jays. Over 119 career appearances, Barnes posted a 4.33 ERA and 114:51 K:BB across 120.2 innings.

  • Orioles' Danny Barnes: Lands minors deal with Baltimore

    Barnes signed a minor-league contract with the Orioles in late February, Chris Hilburn-Trenkle of Baseball America reports.

    The 30-year-old righty didn't appear in any games for the Orioles during the Grapefruit League slate before spring training concluded, so it appears his minor-league deal didn't include an invitation to big-league camp. Barnes, who last appeared in the majors in 2018 as a member of the Blue Jays, is expected to begin the upcoming campaign at Triple-A Norfolk.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Continues to dominate

    Barnes struck out three in 1.2 innings of relief during Saturday's split-squad game against the Orioles.

    Dropped from the 40-man roster in the offseason, Barnes came into camp with a chip on his shoulder and has been brilliant, posting a 10:0 K:BB in 6.2 innings while giving up only one run. That's likely not enough to put him back in the mix for a bullpen job, especially after his rough 2018, but if he carries that momentum forward into the regular season with Triple-A Buffalo, he could resurface in the majors over the summer.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Clears waivers

    Barnes cleared waivers Tuesday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of reports.

    Unsurprisingly, Barnes' 5.71 ERA last year didn't entice any other team to claim him. He'll remain with the Blue Jays and will be in camp as a non-roster invitee.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Designated for assignment

    Barnes was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

    Barnes was cut from the roster to make room for the newly signed Freddy Galvis. His 5.71 ERA in 41 innings for Toronto last season is unlikely to send teams scrambling to claim him.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Returns to majors

    Barnes was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo on Monday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

    Barnes will rejoin the big club to offer a fresh arm out of the bullpen after the team used five relievers during Sunday's loss. The right-hander owns a 4.50 ERA across 32 innings with the Blue Jays this season.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Slated to head back to minors

    Barnes will be optioned to Triple-A Buffalo before Monday's game against the Royals, John Lott of The Athletic Toronto reports.

    The Blue Jays need to make room for Monday's scheduled starter Sean Reid-Foley, and it appears Barnes will be the roster casualty. The 28-year-old has struggled to a 4.60 ERA in the majors this season, so he'll look to turn things around with the Triple-A squad in Buffalo.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Activated from DL

    Barnes (knee) was reinstated from the 10-day disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against Oakland, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk reports.

    Barnes will return to Toronto's bullpen after being placed on the DL in late June with left knee tendinitis. He was able to pitch in three minor-league games while on a rehab assignment and didn't experience any problems, so expect him to be available immediately. Across 32 appearances this year, he's logged a 4.60 ERA and 1.60 WHIP.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Embarks on rehab assignment

    Barnes (knee) will begin a minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Buffalo on Friday, Gregor Chisholm of reports.

    Barnes will take the mound in a live game for the first time in over a month after being placed on the 10-day DL due to left knee tendinitis in late June. The right-hander will likely require multiple appearances with Buffalo before being activated.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Set to throw live batting practice

    Barnes (knee) is scheduled to throw live batting practice at some point this week, Gregor Chisholm of reports.

    It's unclear if Barnes intends to report to one of the Blue Jays' minor-league affiliates to face hitters or if he'll instead wait until the big club reconvenes after the All-Star break. Once he does complete the live BP session, Barnes will be re-evaluated before the Blue Jays determine if he's ready to head out on a rehab assignment or pitch in a simulated game. Barnes, who has been sidelined since June 21, is expected to work in middle relief for the big club once activated.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Throws off mound Tuesday

    Barnes (knee) completed a bullpen session Tuesday, Mike Wilner of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.

    Barnes, who has been on the shelf since late June with knee tendinitis, is scheduled to throw off the mound again Friday. If that goes well, Barnes could be cleared to face live hitters a few days later before beginning a minor-league rehab assignment. The 28-year-old looks on track to return from the 10-day disabled list shortly after the All-Star break and will likely fill a middle-relief role for the Blue Jays once activated.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Sent to DL

    Barnes was placed on the 10-day disabled list with left knee tendinitis, Shi Davidi of reports.

    The right-hander was rough during his Thursday appearance, allowing one run on three hits and one walk in two-thirds of an inning. Barnes will now get some time off from his mostly low-leverage role to heal up.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Optioned to Triple-A Buffalo

    Barnes was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo prior to Friday's game, Mike Wilner of BlueJaysTalk reports.

    Barnes has appeared in 32 games for Toronto this season, logging a 4.60 ERA and 1.60 WHIP with a 27:17 K:BB across 29.1 innings of relief. He will make room for Sam Gaviglio on the active roster, who is set to return from paternity leave at some point this weekend.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Brought up from Triple-A

    The Blue Jays will promote Barnes from Triple-A Buffalo on Wednesday, Shi Davidi of reports.

    Barnes will offer the Blue Jays a fresh arm out of the bullpen in place of Deck McGuire, who was optioned to Triple-A after covering 3.1 innings in long relief Tuesday against the Mets. Unlike McGuire, Barnes projects to work in more of an one-inning setup role, though it's unlikely that Barnes will factor into Blue Jays' plans at closer. That spot remains unsettled with Roberto Osuna on administrative leave following his assault arrest last week.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Optioned to Triple-A

    The Blue Jays optioned Barnes to Triple-A Buffalo on Thursday, Shi Davidi of reports.

    Barnes got off to a solid start with the Blue Jays after making the bullpen out of camp, but he's hit a skid of late tied to a lack of command. His last clean inning came April 18 against the Royals, and he's since allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and seven walks over his last six appearances. His two hits and two walks over one-third of an inning Thursday appears to have been the last straw, leading to his demotion. The 28-year-old will attempt to collect himself at Triple-A for a potential recall later in the season.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Off to solid start

    Barnes has given up one run on nine hits while striking out 10 across 7.1 innings this season.

    Barnes has been one of Toronto's more reliable arms out of the bullpen, with a 1.23 ERA, one win and two holds in eight appearances. He's also been able to demonstrate outstanding command, as he's yet to issue a walk in 2018. The Blue Jays will take on Kansas City on Tuesday after Monday's matchup was postponed.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Gives up walkoff single in Sunday's loss

    Barnes (2-6) took the loss Sunday in Baltimore after giving up a two-out, walkoff RBI single to Mark Trumbo in the 12th inning.

    Barnes posted a 3.09 ERA and .189 BAA through 43.2 innings before landing on the DL with a shoulder ailment in July. Since returning on Aug. 4, the 27-year-old has allowed eight runs on 14 hits over 14.2 frames. Barnes has played in 55 games this year (four with Triple-A Buffalo), the most appearances for any campaign during his eight professional seasons. With rosters now expanded and the playoffs unlikely, it wouldn't be surprising to see Toronto ease off Barnes as the finish line approaches.

  • Blue Jays' Danny Barnes: Returns from DL

    Barnes (shoulder) was activated off the disabled list Friday, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet reports.

    The Blue Jays are getting one of their steadier bullpen arms back with Barnes' return from a shoulder injury. Barnes has been particularly effective in limiting base runners, as evidenced by his 1.01 WHIP across 43.2 innings. He'll take Joe Biagini's spot on the roster after Biagini was optioned in a corresponding move.
