Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Doubles twice among three hits in rout
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles, two RBI and two runs in a 10-0 win against the Padres on Wednesday.

Barnes has arguably been the best backup catcher in the game this year, as this effort lifted his season OPS to .907 -- a much higher figure than the .769 that No. 1 backstop Yasmani Grandal is sporting. As such, Barnes makes for an appealing DFS play when he draws into the lineup.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Homers in second straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes went 1-for-3 with a walk and a three-run home run in Monday's win over the Padres.

The long ball was Barnes' second in as many starts and eighth in 97 games this season. His season line is up to .285/.408/.483 -- a dramatic improvement over previous stints in the majors -- as he's displayed great patience at the plate and good contact skills. He has made 18 appearances at second base and could enter next season with dual eligibility, although it wouldn't be a huge boon to his value as Barnes is better utilized in fantasy at his natural position anyway.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Clears fences Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes went 1-for-3 while hitting a solo home run Saturday, his seventh of the season, during the Dodgers' 2-1 loss to the Giants.

He provided the only offense for the scuffling yet playoff-cemented Dodgers, lifting a Madison Bumgarner offering over the left-field wall in the eighth inning to break up the shutout. Barnes, who's slashing .284/.407/.471 across 246 plate appearances, appears to be eating into more of the struggling Yasmani Grandal's playing time. He appears well worth a fantasy add in two-catcher fantasy leagues, or even in formats where it pays to stream.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Could see increase in playing time
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes got the nod behind the dish Wednesday, going 0-for-2 with a pair of walks in a 4-1 win over the Giants.

The 27-year-old has been on the short side of a catching platoon with Yasmani Grandal this year, but the latter's recent struggles at the plate could lead to more playing time for Barnes down the stretch, Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register reports. Manager Dave Roberts mentioned that he wants to see Grandal snap out of his current funk, but he added that he would play the best option as the Dodgers approach the postseason. Barnes is slashing a healthy .294/.413/.471 in 225 plate appearances, so he would immediately gain fantasy value if a changing of the guard occurs.

Dodgers' Austin Barnes: Collects two hits Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barnes went 2-for-3 with a double, a walk and an RBI in Friday's loss to the Padres.

The backstop started his second consecutive game behind the dish in place of the struggling Yasmani Grandal. It is worth noting that the Dodgers have faced southpaws in the two games that Barnes has started, so this is likely a sign of a platoon forming as opposed to a changing of the guard. The 27-year-old has performed well in a limited role this season (.292/.414/.521), making him a solid play in daily formats when he is penciled in the lineup.
