Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Sits for day game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the White Sox.

Barnhart went 2-for-3 while catching all nine innings of the Reds' 9-0 loss Tuesday night, so he'll be getting a breather while Cincinnati and Chicago conclude their series Wednesday with an early game. Tyler Stephenson will pick up the start behind the dish, batting seventh.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Takes part in home-run parade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart went 2-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two runs Sunday in the Reds' 13-12 win over the Cubs in 10 innings.

Barnhart's long ball was his third of the season and one of five on the day for the Reds. Cincinnati values Barnhart mainly for his skills as a game caller, but he's been a surprising contributor to what has been one of the majors' most potent lineups through the first month of the season. The 31-year-old is holding down a .918 OPS, 168 points better than his next-best mark (in 2017) for any season of his career.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Slugs second homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's win over Cleveland.

Barnhart gave Cincinnati an early lead with a 412-foot shot to center field in the second inning. The long ball was his second this season and pushed his RBI total to eight. The career .249 hitter is slashing .387/.424/.710 across 33 plate appearances in 2021. There's ample reason to be skeptical that he can sustain his early season success, but it's not the worst idea to ride his offensive surge for as long as he's swinging a hot stick.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Three hits in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnhart went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and two runs in Tuesday's 14-1 win over the Pirates.

The bottom of the Reds' order was a wrecking ball Tuesday, as Nick Senzel, Jonathan India and Barnhart combined for nine hits, nine runs and seven RBI from the 6-7-8 spots. The veteran catcher is better known for his defense, but Barnhart is having a strong start to the season at the plate, going 5-for-13 (.385) with a homer and five RBI in five games.

Reds' Tucker Barnhart: Slow bat this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
