Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Picks up extra-inning save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes closed out Tuesday's game to pick up his first save of the season in Boston's 1-0 win over Baltimore in 11 innings.

Having used closer Craig Kimbrel in the ninth inning, manager John Farrell had to rely on second-tier relievers for a second consecutive night. On Monday, it was Carson Smith closing out an 11-inning affair. Barnes faced the heart of the Baltimore order Tuesday, setting them down 1-2-3. He's capable of pitching in any situation and has pitched better than his 3.82 ERA might suggest.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Activated from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (back) was activated from the DL prior to Friday's game against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

He will slot back into his mid-to-high-leverage role in Boston's bullpen. Barnes has a 3.60 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 60 innings this year, picking up six wins in the process.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Will be activated Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (back) expects to be activated from the 10-day disabled list when first eligible on Friday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Barnes, who has been on the shelf since Aug. 22 with a lower-back strain, is on the cusp of a return to the big-league bullpen. He's set to make a minor-league rehab start for Double-A Portland on Tuesday, and if all goes well, his next appearance should be for the Red Sox. Once he returns, Barnes should resume his role as one of Boston's main setup men for closer Craig Kimbrel.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Lands on DL with back injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes was placed on the 10-day disabled list Tuesday with a lower-back strain, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

The move to the DL comes after Barnes failed to record an out while allowing both batters he faced to reach base in Monday's loss to the Indians. The Red Sox recalled Hector Velazquez from Triple-A Pawtucket to fill Barnes' spot in the bullpen, but it's expected that Joe Kelly and Brandon Workman will be the main beneficiaries of more high-leverage opportunities while Barnes is sidelined.

Red Sox's Matt Barnes: Lit up in Sunday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes (6-3) allowed four runs (three earned) on three hits without retiring a batter in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Royals.

Barnes came on in the eighth inning with Boston up, 3-1, but couldn't offer the kind of relief he's generally provided this season. He entered the game having allowed just two runs on seven hits and five walks while striking out 17 over his previous 17.1 innings. It may just be a blip but it's a blip that comes at the trade deadline and might just spur the Red Sox to add another bullpen arm, like the Mets' Addison Reed, who can also fill in at closer when Craig Kimbrel is unavailable.
