Red Sox P Matt Barnes adjusting to life in the bullpen
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(5/22/15) Despite the fact that Red Sox rookie pitcher Matt Barnes was drafted as a starter, he has made 11 relief appearances in his brief Major League career, which started in 2014. Barnes has yet to start a big league game, and he may wind up being a reliever long-term for the Red Sox. But Barnes would be just fine with that.
“Right now, I’m not sure about (starting) because I’ve been doing one thing and I’m satisfied with what I’m doing right now,” said Barnes, per the Boston Herald. “I’m available to do anything and I’ll do anything the team needs me to do.”
Barnes, who was drafted 19th overall in 2011, is 2-0 and has allowed just one earned run in six appearances this year. And though he is currently blocked by Koji Uehara as a potential closer, manager John Farrell hasn't shied away from using Barnes as a late-inning option out of the bullpen.
“We brought him into high-leverage situations and there’s a reason we brought him into those situations," Farrell said. "Late in the game, you are looking at guy who can ideally control the running game and he’s got the ability to get a strikeout.”
Red Sox's Matt Barnes earns first career win Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/12/15) Red Sox pitcher Matt Barnes picked up his first career win Monday, tossing a pair of scoreless innings while holding the A's hitless, issuing one walk and striking out one in his team's 5-4, 11-inning victory.
"He was calm. Pulse seemed to stay pretty even keel for him," Farrell said of Barnes, per the Boston Herald. "Didn’t go out and change his demeanor after we took the lead in the 11th. Two key innings for us."
Barnes has made 75 starts and just two relief appearances in the minors after being selected in the first round of the 2011 draft.
"I mean, it’s a different routine," Barnes said of coming out of the bullpen. "It’s still a work in progress. We’ll keep working with that. For right now it’s going good."
Barnes has allowed one earned run on 5 1/3 innings while striking out three and walking two in three appearances.
