Profile: When the Rockies acquired Brandon Barnes in the Dexter Fowler trade, there was a glimmer of hope that Barnes could be the Rockies' starting center fielder. He had hit eight home runs in 2013 with the Astros, and stole 11 bases, while playing excellent defense. He hit the same eight home runs in 2014 in fewer plate appearances, and saw his isolated power spike, as he posted his career-best wRC+. There were a couple of problems with this though. First, that career-best wRC+ was 83, which isn't very good, making him 17% worse than the league average. Second, in 2014, he was in his age-28 season. Third, he struck out in 31.9% of his plate appearances. In 2015, Barnes was able to get his strikeouts under control, but everything else failed him. He dropped down to a 62 wRC+, and then in 2016 he sunk even further, to a 31 wRC+. Of the 438 players who tallied at least 100 PA in 2016, only four posted a worse wRC+ than did Barnes. It comes as little surprise then, that when the Rockies were ready to promote David Dahl, Barnes was the one who was sent down to make room for the phenom. The Rockies sent Barnes down on July 24, and released him outright on Sept. 9. Barnes has signed a minor league deal with the Marlins heading into 2017, but since the Marlins already have four good outfielders, Barnes' potential for playing time will be limited to — in a best-case scenario — to Giancarlo Stanton's annual disabled list stints. And who knows, he might not even see the field in those situations either, as the drop in offensive production from Stanton to Barnes just might be the most depressing thing to ever happen on a baseball diamond, and not even the Marlins are that cruel.

The Quick Opinion: Brandon Barnes' stay on a major league roster was dependent on him maintaining the faintest baseline of offensive production. He couldn't, and as such he was dispatched. Don't expect big contributions from him in the future.
