Barria was called up from Triple-A Salt Lake on Tuesday.
Barria has made just one big-league appearance this season, allowing seven runs in two innings of work while walking four and failing to strike out a single batter. He'll give the Angels length out of the bullpen, with Jose Suarez getting optioned in a corresponding move.
Barria was sent to the Angels' alternate training site Monday, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Barria has made just one big-league appearance this season, giving up seven runs in two frames Saturday against the Blue Jays while walking four and failing to strike out a single batter. Ben Rowen was called up to take his long-relief role.
Barria pitched two innings against Toronto on Saturday, allowing seven runs on six hits and four walks without striking out any batters.
Barria was recalled from the team's alternate training site on Saturday and immediately got a chance to contribute after starter Jose Quintana lasted only 1.2 innings. Barria inherited a seven-run deficit and retired his first batter to end the second frame and stop some of the bleeding, but he was subsequently knocked around himself and left with the Angels down by a score of 14-1. The right-hander threw 72 pitches in the relief appearance, likely taking him out of the picture for another outing for the next several days.
Barria was recalled by the Angels on Saturday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Barria was part of the Angels' taxi squad for their current road trip, and he'll join the major-league bullpen after right fielder Dexter Fowler (knee) was placed on the 10-day injured list. Barria made seven appearances (five starts) for the Angels last year and posted a 3.62 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in 32.1 innings.
Barria is part of the Angels' taxi squad on their current road trip, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Barria was among the final spring roster costs for Los Angeles, and he'd likely be the first option for a call-up should a spot in the bullpen open up. Though the right-hander isn't eligible to play in games as part of the taxi squad, he'd be almost immediately available to move to the active roster should a member of the team's relief corps require a stay on the injured list.
Barria was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Wednesday.
The Angels were granted another option year this season for Barria by an independent arbiter earlier in March, and the team will promptly take advantage by sending him to the minors to begin the campaign. Barria had a 3.62 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB over 32.1 innings for the Halos in 2020 and should rejoin the bullpen mix at some point this season.
The Angels were granted another option year on Barria by an independent arbiter Wednesday, Jeff Fletcher of The Orange County Register reports.
The arbiter's ruling indicated that last year's abbreviated campaign should not count toward one of Barria's three option years. The decision is significant in that it gives the team valuable roster flexibility. The right-hander can now be moved freely between the minors and majors without being subjected to waivers, which increases the likelihood that he will open the campaign at the Angels' alternate training site.
The Angels are waiting to find out whether Barria will be granted an extra year of minor-league options before determining whether he'll open the season on the big-league roster or in the minors, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Barria made five starts during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, and the organization could elect to have him stretch out in the minors to begin the 2021 season to increase its rotation depth. However, that scenario is dependent on the right-hander having another year of options. If Barria is determined to be out of options, he'll need to be placed on the active roster and would likely come out of the bullpen to start the campaign.
Barria has reported to spring training, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Barria missed the first several days of camp due to visa issues, but he recently joined the team and is unlikely to be impacted by his brief absence. The right-hander should take on a swingman role for the Angels once again in 2021 after posting a 3.62 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 32.1 innings across seven appearances (five starts) last season.
Barria will be a late arrival in spring training due to visa issues, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.
Manager Joe Maddon revealed Wednesday that Barria is one of several pitchers who will be late to spring training due to visa issues. The right-hander made seven appearances (five starts) for the Angels in 2020, posting a 3.62 ERA and 1.11 WHIP over 32.1 innings. He'll likely operate as a swingman once again when he's able to report to camp.
Barria was optioned to the alternate training site Saturday.
The 24-year-old has been in the starting rotation since mid-August, but he'll head to the alternate site ahead of the final two games of the season. Barring another roster move ahead of Sunday's season finale, Barria will finish 2020 with a 3.62 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB over 32.1 innings.
Barria gave up two runs on three hits and zero walks over two innings during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Padres. He had zero strikeouts and didn't factor in the decision.
The 24-year-old surrendered a two-run homer to Eric Hosmer during the first inning and only worked one time through the order before being lifted for Patrick Sandoval. It was likely Barria's final start of the season, but he figures to be available out of the bullpen this weekend after throwing only 32 pitches Wednesday. The right-hander has a 3.62 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB through 32.1 innings.
Barria (1-0) picked up the win Friday after holding the Rangers to two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out eight across 6.1 innings.
It was a successfully long outing for the 24-year-old, who pitched into the sixth inning for the first time this year while punching out a season-high eight batters. Better yet, Barria earned his first quality start and his first win of the season. The right-hander was coming off a strong performance at Coors Field during which he held the Rockies to two runs over 5.1 innings. Barria will look to defend a 3.26 ERA and 1.09 WHIP on Wednesday at San Diego.
Barria gave up two earned runs over 5.1 innings against Colorado on Saturday, surrendering five hits and two walks while striking out two. He did not factor in the decision.
Barria was far from dominant in the start, but he kept the Angels in the game by limiting Colorado to all singles and only two runs. While the two strikeouts were his fewest this year, he set a season high by retiring 16 batters. Barria hasn't allowed more than three earned runs in five starts since joining the rotation, though he has yet to factor in a decision. He'll look to get into the win column at home against Texas on Friday.
Barria allowed three runs on three hits and two walks over five innings Sunday, striking out six in the win over Houston. He did not factor in the decision.
All three runs allowed by Barria came off early homers; he coughed up a two-run shot to Kyle Tucker in the first inning and served up a solo blast to Aledmys Diaz in the second. The 24-year-old righty left in line for the win, but Houston managed to tie the game up in the seventh frame. Still searching for his first win, Barria will have a tough matchup in Colorado on Saturday.
Barria allowed one run on five hits and two walks across 4.1 innings in Monday's 2-1 loss to Seattle. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.
Although Barria wasn't able to get out of the fifth inning Monday, he was still solid in his first start of the season.

The right-hander allowed just one run in five relief innings against the Astros on Aug. 25.
Barria was called up prior to his start Monday against the Mariners.
He has a 2.89 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 8:3 K:BB in 9.1 innings (two appearances) in the majors this season. Barria is not as good as those numbers indicate, but he has a pretty favorable matchup in this outing. He lines up to stat against the Astros in Saturday's doubleheader later this week.
Barria will start Monday's game against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Barria allowed one run over five relief innings during Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros while serving as the 29th man. After spending just under a week at the alternate training site, he'll return to the 28-man roster to make his first start of 2020. The right-hander has been effective over two appearances as a long reliever as he carries a 2.89 ERA and 0.86 WHIP over 9.1 innings.

Barria was recalled from the Angels' alternate training site to serve as the 29th man during Tuesday's doubleheader against the Astros.
Barria was sent down Thursday, but he'll return to the team and be available out of the bullpen for the twin bill before he presumably returns to alternate camp. The right-hander made one relief appearance this season, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out four over 4.1 innings.
