2014-10-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)Austin Barnes has hit at every level with great K/BB rates. I know that he was a bit old for some levels but do you think he has a chance to be an average regular in the majors?
(Festivus313 from Pittsburgh)
Barnes is a favorite of mine, not because he's so good but because he does two things that I love in prospects. I love guys who walk more than they strike out and I love guys who offer positional versatility. He has just enough pop to be a big league bat, though not one who necessarily plays every day. But now that he's seeing time at 2B and 3B, he has become an incredibly valuable guy to a big league roster. He can definitely be a super-utility guy, and having a guy like that who can also catch is huge for a team. I'd want him on my roster/bench and I'd use him a lot. (Jeff Moore)
