Barria is listed as the Angels' starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Dodgers.
The Angels could always alter their pitching plans depending on how Tuesday's series opener shakes out, but Barria nonetheless looks poised to stick in the rotation for another turn, despite a rocky outing in Seattle over the weekend. Barria surrendered a career-high 10 runs on nine hits and four walks over 3.2 innings, negating most of the good work he had done in his prior three appearances with the big club. If Barria fails to put the clamps on the Dodgers this week, he could be bound for Triple-A Salt Lake.
Barria (3-3) was charged with the loss against the Mariners on Friday after surrendering 10 runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out four over 3.2 innings.
He replaced opener Taylor Cole in the third inning with the score tied 0-0. Barria's nemesis proved to be hard-hitting Daniel Vogelbach, who slugged a pair of three-run homers off the right-hander in back-to-back plate appearances. Barria, who was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of Friday's game, has made eight appearances (three starts) this season for the Angels, putting together a 7.36 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 34:11 K:BB. He's scheduled to make his next start against the Orioles on Thursday.
Barria will be recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake to start Friday against the Mariners, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Barria has made seven appearances (three starts) this season for the Angels, accruing a 5.22 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with a 30:4 K:BB over 29.1 innings. Los Angeles has yet to determine if he'll start the contest or work as a bulk reliever in the series opener.
Barria was optioned to Triple-A Salt Lake on Thursday.
Barria had his best outing of the season Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits while striking out eight over five innings in a win over the Rangers in Arlington. However, he would not have been available to pitch again before the break, so it only makes sense for the Angels to swap him out for a fresh bullpen arm. Chances are, Barria will get another chance with the big-league team shortly after play resumes.
Barria (3-2) picked up the win Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks over five innings while striking out eight in a 6-2 victory over the Rangers.
The win was Barria's first in the big leagues since late April, but the 22-year-old has actually pitched well in his three outings for the Angels over the last month, giving up just four runs in 15 innings (2.40 ERA) with a 20:4 K:BB. He'll likely remain in the rotation coming out of the All-Star break.

Griffin Canning has been pushed back for rest purposes, affording Barria another opportunity in the major leagues. Barria has been unable to replicate his 2018 success through six appearances with the Angels this season, posting a 5.55 ERA and 1.44 WHIP in 24.1 innings. Things have been even worse at Salt Lake (7.71 ERA, 1.49 WHIP).

Barria performed well in his return to the rotation Wednesday, allowing one run on three hits while striking out five across five innings, but it apparently wasn't enough to earn the right-hander another start. The Angels have yet to announce who will replace Barria as the team's fifth starter. Andrelton Simmons (ankle) was reinstated from the injured list in a corresponding move.
Barria gave up one run on three hits and no walks while striking out six through five innings in a no-decision against the Reds on Wednesday.
It was a solid outing for the Barria, considering he came into the game sporting a 7.71 ERA during his Triple-A stint this season and a 6.52 ERA when toiling for the Angels. Despite the one-run performance, the right-hander was pulled after only 75 pitches to avoid facing the lineup for a third time. Barria lowered his major-league ERA to 5.55 (six appearances) and will get his next start Monday against the Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
Barria was recalled from Triple-A Salt Lake ahead of his scheduled start against the Reds on Wednesday.
As expected, Barria is set to join the Angels' rotation Wednesday in place of Jose Suarez, who was optioned to Triple-A over the weekend. The 22-year-old Barria struggled during a stint with the big club earlier in the season, posting a 6.52 ERA, 1.66 WHIP and 16:5 K:BB across five appearances (19.1 innings). How he performs in his return to the majors could determine whether he remains in the rotation for another start beyond Wednesday. Jake Jewell was sent to the minors to free up a roster spot for Barria.
The Angels will recall Barria from Triple-A Salt Lake and have him start Wednesday's game against the Reds, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.
Barria will enter the rotation as the Angels' fifth starter, replacing Jose Suarez, who was optioned to Triple-A over the weekend. The 22-year-old struggled mightily in his prior five outings at the big-league level this season, giving up 14 earned runs on 27 hits and five walks over 19.1 innings. He was hit similarly hard at Triple-A and may only be in line for a spot start with Trevor Cahill (elbow) on track to return from the 10-day injured list Wednesday. Cahill looks set to work in a relief role initially, though he or Suarez -- when eligible to return to the majors -- could slot back in as the fifth starter if Barria can't get the job done.

Barria's time in the big leagues didn't last long, as he made just one appearance Thursday, giving up one run on three hits and two walks while fanning six over five innings. Wilfredo Tovar was recalled from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Barria has struggled in the major leagues this season, posting an 8.16 ERA and 1.88 WHIP with 10 punchouts over 14.1 frames, but he'll get another shot out of the bullpen. Taylor Ward was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Barria will cede his spot on the active roster to Andrew Heaney (elbow), who was reinstated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Sunday against the Rangers. After opening the season as a starter/primary pitcher for the Angels, Barria worked in a relief role during his latest stint with the big club.

Barria was lit up for seven runs on 10 hits and a walk over 1.2 innings during his last outing April 27 with the Angels, but he's been granted another shot in the major leagues. Taylor Cole was sent to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

Barria was crushed by the Royals on Saturday and is now headed to the farm. The Angels have three days off in the next nine days, so they won't need Barria for the time being. However, with Tyler Skaggs looking strong in his return to the mound and the debut of Griffin Canning upcoming, Barria may not get his role as a starter back without injuries or poor performance.
Barria (2-2) took the loss Saturday, surrendering seven runs on 10 hits and a walk over only 1.2 innings while striking out one as the Angels fell 9-4 to the Royals.
Cam Bedrosian tossed a scoreless first inning as the opener, but Barria was in trouble almost as soon as he stepped on the mound as the Angels' primary pitcher -- Ryan O'Hearn ripped a double on the second pitch he threw, and things went downhill from there. The 22-year-old's ERA ballooned to 8.16 as a result of this outing, and while Barria's 10:3 K:BB through 14.1 innings isn't bad, Griffin Canning's pending addition to the rotation could bump him into a more traditional long-relief role or even back to Triple-A.
The Angels list Barria as their probable starter for Saturday's game against the Royals.
While the Angels' rotation plans are subject to change over the next few days, it appears Barria will get at least one more turn as either a starter or primary pitcher after impressing in the bulk-relief role over the weekend in Seattle. Upon entering the contest in the second inning, Barria limited the Mariners to one run on four hits and no walks while striking out three en route to claiming the win. The Angels are slated to get Tyler Skaggs (ankle) back from the 10-day injured list for Friday's series opener, but the struggling Chris Stratton looks to be more at risk of surrendering his spot to Skaggs than Barria.
Barria (2-1) allowed one run on four hits and no walks while striking out three across five innings to earn the win Sunday against the Mariners.
Barria followed opener Hansel Robles and pitched effectively and efficiently. He needed only 71 pitches to record 15 outs and allowed only two extra-base hits with no home runs. Though Barria has started only one game, he is pitching effectively in longer stints, meaning he could rack up some wins with decent ratios if he remains a primary pitcher rather than starter.
Barria is not listed as the starter Sunday against the Mariners, as the Angels will use an opener (Hansel Robles), but he is still expected to work as the primary pitcher, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Barria has given up five runs on 10 hits and two walks in 7.2 innings over two appearances, so he can use all the help he can get. This will allow him to avoid at least Mitch Haniger, Domingo Santana and Edwin Encarnacion to start the game. He could pitch deep enough to qualify for the win.
Barria (1-1) allowed four earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Rangers.
Barria made his first start of the season in place of the injured Tyler Skaggs (ankle). Though his overall line was ugly, Barria wasn't entirely ineffective as the majority of his damage came on a home run by Asdrubal Cabrera. Additionally, the bullpen allowed an inherited runner to score after Barria surrendered a leadoff single, accounting for his fourth earned run. It's unclear how long Skaggs will remain out, but Barria could be in line to pick up his second start of the season Sunday against Seattle.
