Cubs' Tony Barnette: Placed on restricted list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette was placed on the restricted list Monday, Patrick Mooney of The Athletic reports.

Barnette was demoted to the minor leagues Wednesday, so he'll take some time away from the game to consider his options moving forward. "He's trying to figure out the next step," stated general manager Jed Hoyer. "We're certainly willing to give him the time to do that. He's a pro and a really good dude. He's at that point in his career where he wants to think things over."

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette was optioned to Triple-A Iowa after Wednesday's loss to the Braves, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Barnette delivered a scoreless inning Wednesday but will head to Triple-A in order to make room for the much-anticipated arrival of Craig Kimbrel. Barnette was activated off the 60-day injured list Sunday and allowed one run over 1.1 innings during his brief time in the majors. The 35-year-old is a likely candidate to return when the Cubs are inevitably forced to shuffle their bullpen arms.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Primed for debut with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) was activated off the 60-day injured list Sunday, Bruce Levine of 670TheScore.com reports.

Barnette signed a one-year deal with the Cubs this offseason but has yet to pitch this season due to the right shoulder sprain. The 35-year-old had a 2.39 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 26:5 K:BB over 26.1 innings with the Rangers last season before being shut down with the shoulder injury.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Rehab starting Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Iowa on Saturday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Barnette had begun a rehab assignment in late April before suffering a setback. His rehab may not be a short one as he's been on the injured list since the start of the season.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: To pitch in extended spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) will pitch in an extended spring training game Wednesday, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Barnette is on the 60-day injured list after experiencing a setback in his recovery from a shoulder sprain. His target return date is unclear.

May 3, 2019 01:56 PM
Cubs' Tony Barnette: Moving to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Friday because he is still experiencing tightness in his shoulder, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Barnette began a minor-league rehab assignment April 21, but the assignment has since been halted given the persistence of the shoulder issue. The 35-year-old's return timeline following the setback remains unclear, though he'll be eligible to be activated towards the end of May.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Makes first rehab appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) began a rehab assignment at Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, retiring two of the four batters he faced while giving up one run on a walk and one hit. He also hit a batter during the 20-pitch outing.

Shut down most of the spring with a sprained right shoulder, Barnette received clearance for minor-league work after experiencing no issues during his recent live batting practice sessions. He looked rusty in his initial game action and will likely require at least a few more appearances at Triple-A before the Cubs are comfortable bringing him back from the 10-day injured list. Barnette will likely fill a lower-leverage role out of the bullpen once activated.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Throwing live batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) has been throwing live batting practice at the Cubs' spring training facility, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

A shoulder strain ended Barnette's 2018 campaign in early July, and the issue carried through the offseason to delay his spring preparation. He's working his way back and facing live hitters but has yet to get any game action on a rehab assignment.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Nearing rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

President of baseball operations Theo Epstein said Monday that Barnette (shoulder) is close to beginning a rehab assignment, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Barnette had already resumed mound work at the conclusion of spring training, so he's presumably advanced to facing hitters in live batting practice at this stage of his recovery. The Cubs should map out of a rehab assignment for the reliever in the coming days, with Barnette likely to require at least two appearances in the minors before returning from the 10-day injured list.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Placed on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) was placed on the 10-day IL, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

He recently threw 20 pitches off a mound, but will need at least a couple more weeks before he is ready to join the big-league bullpen.

March 22, 2019 01:16 PM
Cubs' Tony Barnette: Gets back on mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) threw 20 pitches off a mound Thursday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

The bullpen session was Barnette's first since March 3. He's been ruled out for Opening Day but may not have a lengthy absence if his progress continues without setbacks.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Nearing return to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) could throw a bullpen later this week, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Barnette is still battling the shoulder sprain which ended his 2018 campaign prematurely. He's already been ruled out for Opening Day, but it's not yet clear when he's expected to return.

March 16, 2019 04:08 PM
Cubs' Tony Barnette: Ruled out for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) won't be back by Opening Day, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

Barnette threw Saturday but doesn't have enough time to get up to speed by the start of the regular season. He'll compete for a bullpen role following an expected trip to the injured list.

March 16, 2019 02:52 PM
Cubs' Tony Barnette: Still facing shoulder issues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) is a long shot to be available for Opening Day, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Barnette supposedly entered spring training with no restrictions after missing the end of last season with a right shoulder sprain, but apparently the injury has resurfaced. The 35-year-old signed a one-year deal with the Cubs in February and figures to be a middle-relief bullpen option when healthy.

Cubs' Tony Barnette: Cleared for normal spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) will have no restrictions during spring training, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Barnette's 2018 campaign was cut short in July due to a shoulder sprain, but he's back to full health heading into spring. Prior to getting hurt, the veteran right-hander compiled a 2.39 ERA, 0.91 WHIP and 26:5 K:BB across 26.1 innings for the Rangers. Barnette will likely fill a middle-relief role for his new club.

February 2, 2019 12:08 PM
Cubs' Tony Barnette: Signs with Cubs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) signed a one-year deal with the Cubs with a club option for 2020 on Friday, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Barnette will make $750,000 plus incentives in 2019 and $3 million the following year if his option is picked up. A shoulder sprain cut the 35-year-old's season short in early July, though he was pitching quite well in the first half of the year, recording a 2.39 ERA in 26.1 innings. He should be a capable middle-relief option in Chicago if he's able to fully bounce back.

September 15, 2018 03:41 PM
Rangers' Tony Barnette: Shut down for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) will not return this season, Katie Woo of MLB.com reports.

Barnette was placed on the disabled list July 4 after suffering a right shoulder sprain, was transferred to the 60-day DL later in July, and began throwing in August with the intent to return sometime in September. He'll finish with a 2.39 ERA over 26.1 innings with the Rangers.

July 8, 2018 04:32 PM
Rangers' Tony Barnette: Shifts to 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day disabled list Sunday.

After Barnette was placed on the 10-day DL on Wednesday, the Rangers revealed that the right-hander wouldn't begin a throwing program until at least early August while he recovers from the shoulder strain. Even if he hits no snags in his recovery over the next several weeks, it would have been difficult for Barnette to build up his arm enough to be available by the start of September, so the move to 60-day DL shouldn't dramatically impact his timeline. The transaction will open up a spot on the 40-man roster for Cody Gearrin, one of three players the Rangers acquired Sunday from the Giants.

Rangers' Tony Barnette: Shut down for four weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette (shoulder) won't throw for another four weeks, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Barnette hit the disabled list Wednesday with a strained lat. He missed a short period of time with a shoulder issue earlier in the season but will miss a good deal more this time around, as he'll have to work his way back through his throwing progression once those four weeks have expired.

July 4, 2018 03:20 PM
Rangers' Tony Barnette: Lands on disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnette was placed on the 10-day disabled list Wednesday with a right shoulder strain.

The shoulder began barking again Tuesday and has now sent Barnette to the DL for the second time this season. He missed just a little more than the minimum 10 days in April, but the team may be more cautious this time around. Chris Martin was recalled in a corresponding move.
