Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett was optioned to Triple-A Fresno on Saturday, Jessica Camerato of reports.

Barrett had an uphill battle toward claiming a spot in the major-league bullpen during spring training, and he failed to generate much production with a 7.50 ERA and 3:3 K:BB over six innings. The 32-year-old was fully healthy during the offseason and was effective in the minors last year, and he could play a low-leverage role in the Nationals' bullpen at some point in 2020 if injuries arise.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Had healthy offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett heads into spring training healthy, Jessica Camerato of reports.

The right-hander made his return to the mound last summer after missing almost three full seasons due to Tommy John surgery and a fractured forearm, so making it through the winter without suffering any setbacks was no sure thing. Barrett posted good numbers at Double-A in 2019 but fought his control during a September callup to the majors, so while his comeback is an inspiring story, he still has plenty to prove in camp if he's going to secure a low-leverage spot in Washington's bullpen.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Callup official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Nationals officially selected Barrett's contract from Double-A Harrisburg on Wednesday.

As anticipated, Barrett will make his long-awaited return to the big leagues after having last pitched for the Nationals in 2015. The right-hander was sidelined for the entire 2016 campaign following Tommy John surgery and didn't pitch in 2017 after fracturing his right arm. The 31-year-old appears to have since bounced back from the devastating injuries, as he posted a 2.75 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 62:16 K:BB across 52.1 innings at Double-A this season.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Resurfaces in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett had his contract selected from Double-A Harrisburg on Tuesday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Barrett last appeared in the majors back in 2015, posting a 4.60 ERA with 35 punchouts over 29.1 innings. He'll get another shot with the big-league club after finishing with a 2.75 ERA and 1.06 WHIP with a 62:16 K:BB over 52.1 frames with the Senators this year.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Makes first appearance since 2015
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) debuted with short-season Auburn on June 15, working around two hits and a walk and striking out three batters as part of a scoreless inning.

The outing marked Barrett's first appearance in affiliated ball since Aug. 5, 2015, when he was still a member of the Nationals' active roster. Barrett was diagnosed with a sprained elbow a day after that game that ultimately required Tommy John surgery, then cracked his humerus bone in July 2016 when he was struck by a line drive while facing live hitters. After having two plates and 16 screws inserted into his elbow to address the latter injury, Barrett is finally ready to resume his career after a two-year rehab process. He hasn't pitched since that initial appearance for the short-season club, but it's expected that he'll gradually increase the frequency of his outings and work his way up the minor-league ladder again.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Throws at extended spring training Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) threw at extended spring training Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

The headliner of the extended spring game was Daniel Murphy's presence, but it turns out Barrett was the pitcher throwing to him. Barrett wasn't expected to begin throwing in game situations until later this year, so this is a nice surprise. He still projects to miss at least another month or so, however.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Hoping to return to game action this summer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) was able to throw a few pitches off a mound last week, and he's hoping to pitch in a minor-league game by the summer, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

The right-hander hasn't thrown a competitive pitch since 2015, undergoing Tommy John surgery that September then having his forearm snap just above the elbow the following July during his rehab. It would be a minor miracle if Barrett is able to pitch in the majors again, but he's beginning to take some tentative steps toward resuming his career.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Set to resume throwing in July
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett is set to begin throwing a baseball again in the second week of July, a full year after his second elbow surgery, Chelsea Janes of The Washington Post reports.

There's no guarantee Barrett will ever get back to the majors after his gruesome injury -- the right-hander snapped his humerus bone throwing a pitch as he was rehabbing from Tommy John surgery -- but the Nats signed him to a two-year minor-league deal this offseason and are willing to be patient with his recovery. If he avoids a setback once he begins his throwing program again, he could compete for a bullpen spot with Washington next spring.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Joins Nationals on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) agreed to a minor-league deal with the Nationals on Tuesday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Barrett is a former Nationals setup man, but Tommy John surgery in 2015 and a fractured elbow in 2016 have ended his previous two big-league campaigns. The 29-year-old is still rehabbing his elbow and it's currently unclear when he'll return to live action. His return to the major leagues does not seem to be imminent.

Aaron Barrett: Elects free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) cleared waivers Wednesday and declined an assignment to Triple-A Syracuse, making him a free agent, The Washington Post reports.

He's recovering from two elbow surgeries in the last 13 months, so there likely won't be a big market for his services. When he's healthy, Barrett's nasty slider can make him an effective part of a major league bullpen in a middle relief or setup role, but it's not certain yet whether he'll even be ready for spring training. Expect Barrett to eventually land a minor league deal somewhere, potentially even back with the Nats.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett was placed on outright waivers this week, The Washington Post reports.

This doesn't necessarily mean his tenure with the Nationals is over, but after two elbow surgeries in 12 months the team was unwilling to use a 40-man roster spot on the reliever, much less pony up for him in arbitration. Barrett isn't expected to be ready to pitch again until at least midseason 2017.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Suffers elbow fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett suffered a right elbow fracture and will see Dr. James Andrews on Monday, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post reports.

Barrett has been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery since last September, but this serious setback likely means at least another full calendar year on the shelf for the reliever. Another surgery is essentially a certainty for the right-hander, as Monday's consultation with the famed orthopedic surgeon is primarily to evaluate the extent of the damage.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Throws 60-pitch bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) threw a 60-pitch bullpen session Friday, MASN's Dan Kolko reports.

Barrett, who had Tommy John surgery last September, said he feels great, and it's good to see that he has begun the process of throwing bullpen sessions. However, it's still highly unlikely he'll return this season.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Placed on 60-day DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) was placed on the 60-day disabled list Friday.

Barrett is recovering from September Tommy John surgery, and he still has several months to go in the process. He will have an outside shot to return to action late this season, but his recovery process generally takes about a year, so he could miss the entire campaign.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett: Has bone chips removed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (elbow) had some bone chips removed from his left ankle last Thursday, William Ladson of reports.

Barrett continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery, so the bone chip removal should be considered just a minor footnote barring a setback. The reliever still has a long road ahead, but have a chance at a late-season return.

Nationals' Aaron Barrett undergoes Tommy John surgery
by Sean D'Oliveira | CBS Sports Staff

Nationals pitcher Aaron Barrett underwent Tommy John surgery on his right elbow Thursday, reports The Washington Post. He will need at least a year to recover.

"Everything was successful," manager Matt Williams said. "He's on the road to recovery now. It's disappointing for him certainly, but he's a warrior and he'll work hard to be back."
