Latest Update Dodgers, Barney Agree to One-Year Deal Wed Dec, 03, 12:32 AM
Is a good contact hitter with doubles power who doesn't strike out much. Can run a little, too. In the field, he's sure-handed and very good overall.
Flaws: : Doesn't have much home-run power, and he doesn't take enough walks to maximize his on-base potential. Overall, he lacks offensive tools.
Barney agreed to a one-year deal worth $2.525 million. In an interview, the Dodgers' new GM Farhan Zaidi noted that he thought Barney could play Shortstop as well as second base. The Dodgers' new regime appears set on improving the Dodgers' defense up the middle and Barney has long rated as one of the league's rangiest second baseman. Given this philosophy, it wouldn't be surprising to see Matt Kemp in a different uniform by the end of the offseason. Analyst: Spencer Silva
Barney has played sparingly for the Dodgers since being acquired and the home run he hit today was just his third of the season. There is no real fantasy value here so nobody should be rushing to the waiver wires to get him on their teams.Analyst: Jonathan Impemba
Barney logged his first two-hit game since joining the Dodgers as he received a rare start shortstop on Sunday. He is now sitting on a .235 average with two home runs and 18 RBI on the season which is not going to earn him either a starting gig or fantasy consideration moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
With Hanley Ramirez hitting the disabled list Sunday, the Dodgers will bring Barney up to serve as depth in the infield. How much playing time he actually sees is not yet known, but the bulk of the work should fall on Miguel Rojas.Analyst: Howard Bender
