Indians' Brandon Barnes: Returns to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes signed a minor-league deal with the Indians which includes an invitation to spring training.

Barnes spent a majority of the 2018 season at the Triple-A level within Cleveland's organization before finishing up the campaign in the majors. Across 132 games for Columbus, he slashed .273/.347/.444 with 14 home runs, 81 RBI and 19 stolen bases. The 32-year-old will provide additional outfield depth for the Indians heading into 2019.

Brandon Barnes: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes elected to become a free agent Friday after being outrighted off the Indians' 40-man roster.

Barnes was sent outright to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday and will now return to the free-agent pool. The 32-year-old played 19 games with Cleveland -- going 5-for-19 with a home run, two RBI and two walks -- and his most likely path to a roster in 2019 is through a minor-league contract.

Indians' Brandon Barnes: Removed from 40-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes was sent outright to Triple-A Columbus on Thursday.

Barnes finished the 2018 campaign with the big-league squad but has since been bumped off the 40-man roster. Through 19 games for Cleveland last season, he went 5-for-19 with a home run, two RBI and two walks.

Indians' Brandon Barnes: Contract selected by Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes' contract was selected by Cleveland on Tuesday.

The 32-year-old hasn't played in the majors since 2016 and owns a .242/.289/.356 slash line over parts of five seasons. He'll be a reserve outfielder for the Indians over the final month of the season.

Indians' Brandon Barnes: Signs with Indians on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes signed a minor-league deal with the Indians that includes an invitation to spring training, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.

The 31-year-old journeyman failed to reach the majors for the first time since 2011, spending all of 2017 at the Triple-A level with the Marlins. He hit .276/.331/.420 with 11 home runs and 15 steals in 451 plate appearances in the Pacific Coast League. The Indians have enough outfield depth that they are invested in that it would be hard to envision Barnes carving out a big-league role in 2018 without a handful of injuries.

Marlins' Brandon Barnes: Inks minors deal with Marlins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes signed a minor league deal with the Marlins that includes an invitation to spring training, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

Barnes appeared in 286 games for the Rockies over the last three seasons, but was designated for assignment in 2016 when the team promoted David Dahl. The veteran outfielder slashed .220/.250/.320 last year and will likely provide organizational outfield depth for the Marlins in 2017.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Accepted assignment to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes has accepted his assignment to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Barnes was designated for assignment July 25 after the Rockies called up outfield prospect David Dahl. With Dahl experiencing immediate success with Colorado, it's hard to see a scenario where Barnes comes back up without an injury to a current outfielder. With the trade deadline approaching, it looks like the Rockies are going to stand pat with Charlie Blackmon and Carlos Gonzalez.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Officially Designated for Assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes was designated for assignment on Monday, Jenny Cavnar of MLB.com reports

With Barnes out of options, the Rockies were forced to DFA him instead of optioning him to the minor leagues, while David Dahl was recalled in a corresponding move. Barnes has been awful over the past 20 games, hitting .128/.150/.205 with no home runs, three RBI and one run scored.

July 25, 2016 12:40 AM
Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Designated for assignment Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes will be designated for assignment Monday, The Denver Post reports.

Barnes will cede his roster spot to 22-year-old outfielder David Dahl, who may step in as the regular left fielder. The 30-year-old Barnes could pass through waivers unclaimed, as he has 22 hits and 30 strikeouts in 100 at-bats this season.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Out of the lineup Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Rays.

Barnes is hitting a measly .231 with no home runs and seven RBI in 41 games; he'll take the night off in favor of Ryan Raburn, who will start in left field and bat sixth.

June 27, 2016 05:34 PM
Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Batting eighth Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is in the lineup and batting eighth for Monday's game against the Blue Jays, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

The 30-year-old has been hot lately, hitting .455/.455/.545 with four runs and a stolen base over his last three games, and will get the start in left field Monday in place of Ryan Raburn.

June 26, 2016 01:34 PM
Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Not in Sunday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is out of the lineup Sunday against the Diamondbacks, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Barnes has started three of the last four games in left field, but will give way to Ryan Raburn for the afternoon matchup against Arizona. Look for the two to continue to split playing time in left until Gerardo Parra (ankle) returns, after which they will likely be limited to starts against left-handed pitching.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Enjoys three-hit day Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes went 3-for-4 with a double and three runs in Saturday's 11-6 victory over the D-backs.

Recalled from Triple-A just a little over a week ago, Barnes provided his second multi-hit effort of the season, and first since his most recent call-up. Filling in for Gerardo Parra (ankle) while the latter is on the DL, the 30-year-old is slashing .263/.300/.316 over 19 at-bats since returning to the big leagues.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Gets recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

Barnes was recalled due to Gerardo Parra landing on the 15-day DL with a high ankle sprain. The 30-year-old had been hitting .277/.333/.365 with Albuquerque, and is 6-for-31 with two doubles and one triple during his time with the Rockies this year. Barnes will get a chance to share in the outfield duties with Ryan Raburn while Parra is out.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes was optioned to Triple-A Albuquerque on Friday, Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

With the Rockies activating Charlie Blackmon off the DL on Friday, Barnes was the logical player to be sent down to Triple-A given the club's crowded outfield situation. Barnes slashed .194/.242/.323 with seven strikeouts in 31 at-bats during his stint with the big league club.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Will leadoff Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes will lead off and start in center field Sunday against the Dodgers, Jenny Cavnar of Root Sports reports.

Barnes usually is at the back end of the lineup when he starts, but today he will lead off and start in center field while Gerardo Parra slides over to left field. Barnes has collected six hits in 21 at-bats this season, resulting in an average of .286.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Starting in center field again Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is starting center field again Monday versus the Reds, Zach Buchanan of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Barnes came into the season looking like the Rockies' fifth outfielder, but he'll slot into the starting lineup once again despite the fact that right-hander Dan Straily is on the mound for the Reds. He'll bat sixth for Colorado, which could give him some RBI opportunities Monday night.

April 17, 2016 04:20 PM
Rockies' Brandon Barnes: In the lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is in the lineup for Sunday's matchup with the Cubs as the starting center fielder, while batting seventh.

Barnes will face left-handed pitcher Jon Lester, with Gerardo Parra -- who will regularly start in center field with Charlie Blackmon (toe) injured -- moving over to left field for the day.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Starting in center field Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes is starting in center field and batting eighth in Wednesday's game against the Diamondbacks, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports.

With left-hander Patrick Corbin on the bump for Arizona, everyday center fielder Charlie Blackmon is taking a seat on the bench, allowing Barnes to get his first start of the season. He hasn't historically been better against left-handed pitching, but the drop-off of Blackmon's numbers against lefties was enough to get Barnes into the lineup Wednesday.

Rockies' Brandon Barnes: Makes Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes made the Rockies' Opening Day roster as a fifth outfielder.

Barnes was in a competition with pitchers Jason Gurka and Scott Oberg for the final two roster spots, but the Rockies opted to go with an eight-man bullpen, giving Barnes a spot on the roster. That being said, the outfielder will be blocked from consistent playing time with the Rockies' outfield very much set and Ryan Raburn projected to be the first outfielder off the bench. However, Barnes has more experience in center field than Raburn, which could help him see more playing time when the regulars are resting.
