BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 After serving primarily as a catcher for Arizona State, Austin Barnes successfully transitioned to second base during the second half of last year, but expectations stemming from his offensive performance in the Sally League should be tempered because he was old for the level.

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)
