Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Charged with first loss
Barnes (3-1) allowed four runs on four hits in an inning of work to take the loss Friday against the Guardians. He struck out two.
Starter Tarik Skubal was hit by a comebacker at the end of the fifth inning and exited the game with a left leg contusion. The lefty hadn't allowed a run while he was in there, but Barnes immediately changed that. The righty allowed four straight hits to start the frame, with the final blow being a three-run home run by Jose Ramirez. The poor outing raised Barnes' ERA from 1.93 to 4.20. That's more in line with his career 4.58 ERA, so Barnes was probably pitching a bit over his head to start the season.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Picks up second win
Barnes (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning in relief and earned the win Saturday against the Dodgers.
Barnes has pitched well for the Tigers with a 1.08 ERA and 0.60 WHIP across 8.1 innings, and he's now scooped up two wins in relief as well. Wins are unpredictable for middle relievers, so it's hard to say how many more the righty will get, but Barnes has at least solidified his role in the Detroit bullpen with his strong play so far....

Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Earns first 2022 win
Barnes (1-0) pitched 1.1 scoreless innings of relief with a strikeout to earn the win Friday against the Royals.
Barnes has been good so far for Detroit, logging three scoreless innings and allowing just a single hit. Michael Fulmer earned his first save of the season Friday, and Gregory Soto is the team's regular closer, so Barnes should remain in a setup role moving forward. However, with Jose Cisnero (shoulder) on the 60-day IL, Barnes should be able to hold onto a key role in the Tigers' bullpen, even if it doesn't carry a ton of fantasy value most days....

Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Contract selected Wednesday
Barnes' contract was selected by the Tigers on Wednesday.
Barnes has had lackluster results in the majors across the last several seasons, but he still claimed a spot in Detroit's Opening Day bullpen. Across 29 outings with the Mets and Blue Jays last year, he posted a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 28.2 innings.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Claims bullpen job
The Tigers informed Barnes on Tuesday that he'll be included in the team's Opening Day bullpen, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Fellow non-roster relievers Will Vest and Drew Hutchison are also set to make the team, so Detroit will need to make corresponding transactions to clear spots on the 40-man roster for all three pitchers. Barnes saw action in 29 big-league games between the Mets and Blue Jays in 2021, accruing a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP across 28.2 innings. He'll likely see most of his initial opportunities out of the Detroit bullpen in lower-leverage spots.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Brought back to big-league camp
Barnes returned to major-league camp Friday as Andrew Chafin (groin) continues to receive treatment, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.
Barnes was in camp as a non-roster invitee but was assigned to minor-league camp Monday and appeared set to head to Triple-A Toledo. With Chafin looking like he might not be ready for Opening Day, however, there may be a temporary roster spot available for Barnes. If he does indeed win a job, it won't be a particularly secure one, but a few strong performances early in the year could convince the Tigers to keep him around.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Jacob Barnes: Won't win Opening Day bullpen gig
The Tigers reassigned Barnes to their minor-league camp Monday.
Barnes' reassignment leaves the Tigers with 39 players left at big-league camp. The 31-year-old right-hander had been competing for a spot in the Tigers' Opening Day bullpen, but he'll instead head to Triple-A Toledo to begin the campaign. Barnes made 29 appearances in the majors last season, compiling a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 28.2 innings between stops with the Mets and Blue Jays.... See More ... See Less

Barnes made 29 relief appearances with the Mets and Blue Jays in 2021, and he posted a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 28.2 innings. However, he was cast off Toronto's 40-man roster in October and will now join the Tigers as a non-roster invitee.... See More ... See Less

Blue Jays' Jacob Barnes: Outrighted off roster
The Blue Jays outrighted Barnes to Triple-A Buffalo on Monday.
Barnes will remain in Toronto's organizations after none of MLB's other 29 teams were willing to put in a waiver claim for the 31-year-old reliever when he was designated for assignment last week. Before being dropped from the 40-man roster, Barnes appeared in nine games for Toronto and gave up six earned runs while striking out 13 in nine innings.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jacob Barnes: DFA'd by Blue Jays
Barnes was designated for assignment by the Blue Jays on Monday.
Barnes was traded from the Mets to the Blue Jays in mid-June, and he tossed six scoreless innings across his first five relief appearances with his new club. However, he struggled recently and allowed six runs on six hits and four walks while striking out five in three innings across his last four outings. His removal from the 40-man roster clears room for left-hander Kirby Snead, whose contract was selected by the Blue Jays on Monday.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jacob Barnes: Expected to join Jays in Miami
Manager Charlie Montoyo said Saturday that the newly acquired Barnes is expected to join the team for their upcoming series against the Marlins, Ben Nicholson-Smith of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Barnes was traded to Toronto from the Mets in exchange for cash considerations earlier Saturday. It sounds like the right-hander will join the 26-man roster for the start of the series in Miami on Tuesday, though nothing has been made official at this point. Barnes posted a subpar 6.27 ERA and 1.29 WHIP while logging 18.2 innings with the Mets prior to Saturday's trade.... See More ... See Less
Blue Jays' Jacob Barnes: Traded to Toronto
Barnes was traded from the Mets to the Blue Jays on Saturday in exchange for right-hander Troy Miller.

Barnes posted a 6.27 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 18.2 innings for the Mets this season, and he lost his spot on the 40-man roster after surrendering three runs on five hits in his past two outings. Sean Reid-Foley was recalled from Triple-A Syracuse in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jacob Barnes: Secures second save
Barnes recorded the final out of the seventh inning for the save in Game 2 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Rockies.
Barnes inherited a runner on first base with two outs in the seventh inning, and he got Ryan McMahon to fly out to left field to end the game. The 31-year-old has two saves in his last three appearances. These were unique situations, as one was extra innings and Thursday's was a seven-inning doubleheader. He doesn't normally receive any save opportunities. Barnes has a 6.43 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP in 14 innings.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jacob Barnes: Nabs extra-inning save
Barnes recorded the final out of Friday's 6-5 extra-innings win over the Marlins to record his first save of the season.
After the Mets scored three runs in the top of the 12th inning, Aaron Loup entered the game to try and finish it off with all the team's high-leverage arms having worked earlier in the evening. The left-hander gave up two runs before Barnes was summoned and induced a flyout from Adam Duvall. Barnes now has one save to go with his one win and one hold on the year, but his 7.71 ERA -- fueled by four homers allowed in 11.2 innings -- will keep him far away from key situations on most nights....

Mets' Jacob Barnes: Stuck with loss Wednesday
Barnes (1-1) allowed a run on one hit and struck out two in one inning in Wednesday's loss to Atlanta.
The right-hander got through the eighth inning without trouble, but Ronald Acuna hit a walkoff solo home run against him in the ninth. Barnes has struggled to a 7.94 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 12:3 K:BB across 11.1 innings this year. He has just one hold in 11 outings -- given his inconsistent play, he's unlikely to see many high-leverage opportunities.... See More ... See Less

Mets' Jacob Barnes: Officially breaks camp with Mets
Barnes has made the Mets' Opening Day roster, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.
Barnes appeared likely to break camp with the Mets since he's out of minor-league options. The right-hander posted a 4.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 8:2 K:BB in six innings this spring. While Barnes will likely serve as a low-leverage reliever early in the season, he could take on a higher-leverage role if he pitches well to begin the year.... See More ... See Less
