Reds' Tucker Barnhart: No longer switch hitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart will no longer be a switch hitter and will instead hit exclusively from the left side of the plate, C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic reports.

Over the last three years, Barnhart has a .651 OPS against left-handers, but that dropped to .390 (.133/.235/.156 in 51 plate appearances) last year. With lefty-mashing Curt Casali as his backup, it's most likely that Barnhart will have limited exposure to lefties with this change.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Out against another lefty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, according to C. Trent Rosecrans of The Athletic.

He'll be held out in favor of Curt Casali for the third day in a row. Barnhart has not ceded the starting catcher spot by any means, but the Reds have employed a strict platoon behind the plate since Monday, and Casali has benefited from the Reds facing a string of left-handed starters. Barnhart figures to be back in the lineup Sunday with the Reds scheduled to face right-hander Mike Leake.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Sitting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Reaches base three times in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart went 2-for-4 with a home run, a walk and two RBI in Wednesday's 17-7 loss to the Nationals.

After slugging a pair of solo shots versus the Angels on Aug. 6, Barnhart had gone six games without an extra-base hit before leaving the yard in the blowout loss. Barnhart remains locked in atop the depth chart at catcher for Cincinnati, but his .223 batting average and lack of premium power have rendered him a low-end fantasy option this season. He'll be back behind the plate and will bat eighth in Thursday's series opener against the Cardinals.
