Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Activated by Reds
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart (personal) was activated off the three-day paternity list Tuesday, Bobby Nightengale of The Cincinnati Enquirer reports.

Barnhart was away from the team over the past several days following the birth of his child, but he'll be eligible to return as early as Tuesday's game against the Cubs. When he does play, he'll be making his season debut after hitting .231/.328/.380 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI last year. Robert Stephenson (back) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Not starting Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart isn't in the lineup for Friday's season opener against the Tigers.

The 29-year-old was expected to open the season as the Reds' primary catcher, but Curt Casali ends up receiving the start Opening Day. Barnhart had a .231/.328/.380 slash line with 11 home runs last season, and he's now exclusively hitting from the left side rather than being a switch hitter.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Reds having voluntary workouts
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Reds will continue to hold voluntary workouts at their spring training facility in Goodyear, Arizona, while spring training is suspended, Mark Sheldon of MLB.com reports. Barnhart, the Reds MLBPA representative, is among the Reds that will remain in Arizona for the short term.

Barnhart's wife is pregnant, so she and their young son have already gone home. "I will remain here until I'm told or given a little bit more information or clear vision on what the schedule looks like," Barnhart said. "I think after that, for me personally, I will probably go home and spend time with my family as much as possible and help take care of them as much as possible."

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: Not starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Cubs.

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.
