  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Barnes cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Barnes was designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday, but he'll remain in the organization. The southpaw made 16 starts in St. Paul last year and logged a 3.79 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 76 innings. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him in the mix for a major-league roster spot in 2022.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Designated for assignment

    Barnes was designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Barnes made his major-league debut during the 2021 campaign and recorded a 5.92 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 38 innings across nine appearances (eight starts) with the Twins. He'll now lose his spot on the 40-man roster to make room for several prospects who will be protected from the Rule 5 draft.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Settles for no-decision

    Barnes allowed three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out three in 2.2 innings in Sunday's win over the Royals. He didn't factor into the decision.

    Barnes had lasted at least four innings in each of his first eight appearances of the year, but he was unable to make it through the third inning during Sunday's regular-season finale. The southpaw made nine appearances (eight starts) in the majors across the second half of the season, and he posted a 5.92 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 38 innings.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Recalled by Twins

    Barnes was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

    Barnes was sent down earlier this week after he tossed four scoreless innings in Tuesday's win over the Tigers, but he'll serve as the starter in Sunday's season finale against the Royals, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. The southpaw has posted a 5.86 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 35.1 innings across eight appearances (seven starts) in the big leagues this year.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Demoted after solid outing

    Barnes was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul after pitching four shutout innings during Tuesday's 3-2 win over the Tigers, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. He allowed three hits with two strikeouts and three walks and did not factor in the decision.

    The left-hander was promoted ahead of the contest and will make a quick return to Triple-A with Joe Ryan (personal) set to be reinstated from the bereavement list Wednesday. Barnes has a 5.86 ERA and 17:15 K:BB over 35.1 big-league innings, and Tuesday's outing was his best of the season.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Starting Tuesday

    Barnes will be recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to start Tuesday's game against the Tigers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Barnes was sent to St. Paul in mid-September, and he allowed one run on six hits and no walks while striking out four in four innings during a minor-league appearance Friday. He has a 6.61 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 31.1 innings across seven appearances (six starts) with the Twins this year and hasn't lasted longer than five innings in any of his big-league outings.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Heads back to St. Paul

    The Twins optioned Barnes to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday.

    As expected, Barnes will head back to the minors one day after he served as the Twins' 29th man for the team's doubleheader with Cleveland. He started the second game of the twin bill, taking a no-decision while giving up three earned runs on four hits and a walk over four innings.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: No-decision in nightcap

    Barnes didn't factor into the decision in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over four innings in a 6-3 win. He struck out two.

    The southpaw wasn't exactly sharp in throwing 45 of 71 pitches for strikes, but he left the game with the Twins ahead 4-3. This was originally expected to be a spot start for the 25-year-old, but with Joe Ryan having left the first game after being struck on the wrist by a comebacker, Barnes could be needed in the rotation beyond Tuesday. His 6.61 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 15:12 K:BB through 31.1 big-league innings this year offer no fantasy upside if he does stick around, however.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Called up ahead of start

    Barnes was recalled by the Twins ahead of his scheduled start in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against Cleveland, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Barnes will merely be the extra man for the doubleheader, so he'll likely return to the minors following his start. He hasn't been good in his first taste of big-league action this season, struggling to a 6.59 ERA in five starts and one relief appearance while striking out just 10.5 percent of opposing batters.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: In line for doubleheader start

    The Twins will call up Barnes from Triple-A St. Paul to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with Cleveland, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Minnesota is expected to designate Barnes as its 29th man for the twin bill, so he'll more than likely be headed back to Triple-A after he completes his start Tuesday. Over his prior six outings (five starts) with Minnesota spanning 27.1 innings, Barnes compiled a 6.59 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 13:11 K:BB.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Allows three runs in no-decision

    Barnes allowed three earned runs on four hits and one walk with two strikeouts through four innings, taking a no-decision in Saturday's 6-4 win over the Brewers.

    Barnes allowed just one hit through his first four innings on Saturday but failed to record an out in a brutal top of the fifth. After sitting in the dugout for an eternity while Brewers' starter Adrian Houser had his own issues, Barnes allowed the first four batters he faced in the frame to reach on a walk and three singles before getting the hook. While giving up three earned runs in four innings is nobody's idea of a dream start, the left-hander didn't allow an extra-base hit. After he got shelled by the Yankees to the tune of seven earned runs his last time out, this latest start from the rookie can be seen as a slight improvement.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Retreats to minors

    The Twins optioned Barnes to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Since moving into the Minnesota rotation Aug. 4, Barnes had stumbled to the tune of a 7.54 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 4.8 K/9 in five outings. With Randy Dobnak (finger) potentially on track to return from the 60-day injured list this week and with prospect Joe Ryan making a compelling case for a promotion to the big leagues, the Twins have at least two appealing candidates on hand to replace Barnes when his next turn in the rotation comes up Wednesday against the Cubs.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Stumbles in loss to Yankees

    Barnes (0-3) allowed seven runs on eight hits and five walks with two strikeouts in five innings Friday, taking the loss versus the Yankees.

    The 25-year-old yielded four runs in the first inning as the Yankees manufactured an early rally. Barnes' start didn't get a lot better after that, as he gave up a two-run home run to Aaron Judge in the second, but he was able to labor through five innings to match his longest appearance of the year. The southpaw has an ugly 6.56 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 11:10 K:BB across his first 23.1 major-league innings. He's projected for another tough matchup next week in Boston.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Logs best start of season

    Barnes gave up one run on three hits and struck out three over five innings in his start Sunday against the Rays, but he didn't factor into the decision in Minnesota's 5-4 win.

    Barnes had his best outing of the season against a tough Rays team, issuing no walks in the 73-pitch start. He could continue to get a shot in the rotation if he can limit the free passes, but his lack of swing-and-miss stuff keeps his fantasy upside low.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Labors as primary pitcher

    Barnes didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 11-1 loss to the White Sox after working 4.2 innings out of the bullpen while giving up three runs on six hits and two walks. He struck out three in the 68-pitch outing.

    After Barnes was lit up for five runs over four innings in an Aug. 4 start against the Reds, the Twins elected to have Beau Burrows work as an opener in front of the lefty Monday, when his next turn in the rotation came up. Though Barnes covered the bulk of the innings for Minnesota, he didn't factor into the decision after Burrows put the Twins in a 7-0 hole after two innings. Barnes wasn't especially effective while moping up for Minnesota, but the team's lack of appealing starting options could allow the 25-year-old to maintain his spot in the rotation for the time being.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Working behind opener

    Barnes is scheduled to serve as the Twins' primary pitcher behind opener Beau Burrows in Monday's game against the White Sox, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Barnes made his second career start Aug. 4 in Cincinnati, covering four innings while giving up five runs on seven hits and two walks to take the loss. Though Barnes will remain in the Minnesota rotation for another turn, the Twins are hopeful that having him work behind an opener will yield better results. The arrangement could hurt Barnes from a workload perspective, though it should improve his chances of factoring into any decision.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Struggles in loss

    Barnes (0-2) allowed five runs on seven hits and a pair of walks while striking out two in four innings, taking the loss in Wednesday's 6-5 defeat against the Reds.

    Barnes held the Tigers to one run in 4.1 innings in his first start July 17 but was much less effective this time around. Though Barnes only yielded one extra-base hit, the Reds still managed to put five runs on the board early in Wednesday's contest. The rookie left-hander, with his 6.23 ERA and 1.62 WHIP, figures to be a mainstay in the starting rotation going forward now that Jose Berrios and J.A. Happ are out of the picture. He's scheduled to make his next start Monday against the White Sox.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Starting Wednesday

    Barnes will start Wednesday's game at Cincinnati, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The left-hander made his first MLB start July 17 in Detroit and allowed one run over 4.2 innings, and he'll receive another start in Wednesday's series finale. Barnes should receive a longer look in Minnesota's rotation this time around with Jose Berrios and J.A. Happ having been shipped out at the trade deadline last week.

  • Twins' Charlie Barnes: Recalled by Twins

    Barnes was recalled by the Twins on Friday.

    Barnes made his first career major-league appearance in mid-July, holding the Tigers to one run in a 4.2-inning start. While he'll take the roster spot which had belonged to Hansel Robles, who was dealt to the Red Sox on Friday, he could get another look as a starter with both Jose Berrios and J.A. Happ traded away as well.
