Rockies | Brandon Barnes delivers in first start

Thu, 21 May 2015 17:00:41 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Brandon Barnes made his first start of the season Thursday, May 21, one day after being called up from Class AAA Albuquerque, and went 4-for-4 with a double, RBI, and run scored.

Fantasy Tip: Barnes received extensive playing time as a member of the Houston Astros in 2013 and the Rockies last year but never made much of his opportunities. Considering the Rockies already have a loaded outfield, there's probably little to take in here, especially since Barnes could produce only a .205/.266/.364 batting line in the minor leagues. Barring another injury to Colorado's outfield, Barnes is only a DFS play on FantasyScore.

Rockies | Drew Stubbs sent to AAA

Thu, 21 May 2015 00:53:51 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Drew Stubbs was sent to Class AAA Albuquerque on Wednesday, May 20. OF Brandon Barnes was recalled in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: This should come as little surprise for owners of Stubbs ($2,700, 5.4% of cap), who have watched him struggle at the plate. Remove Stubbs from your lineup.

Rockies | Corey Dickerson out, Kyle Parker starting

Wed, 09 Jul 2014 09:30:27 -0700

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson (wrist) is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 9, after hurting his wrist Tuesday, July 8. OF Kyle Parker will make the start at first base, and OF Brandon Barnes is in left field.

Fantasy Tip: It appears as though Dickerson's injury is a day-to-day situation. The Rockies are facing a left-handed pitcher today, so perhaps the Rockies use Parker at first base against southpaws to give Justin Morneau a break.

Rockies | To mix and match in CF

Fri, 04 Apr 2014 14:54:37 -0700

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss said he plans to rotate players in center field, despite the fact that OF Charlie Blackmon has started there three times in the first five games. OF Corey Dickerson is another left-handed option, and OFs Drew Stubbs and Brandon Barnes swing from the right side. "We'll mix and match," said Weiss. "We have a lot of options. If a guy doesn't start, he can come into the game later as a pinch-hitter, pinch-runner or for defense."

Fantasy Tip: Blackmon is hot to start the season, but the other outfielders will see plenty of chances. Owning any of these options is tough to do in standard mixed leagues because of the uncertainty of PT on a daily basis.

Rockies | CF competition could last all spring

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 07:43:46 -0700

The Colorado Rockies' competition for center field could last until late in spring training, said manager Walt Weiss. He made a point of singling out OF Brandon Barnes, whom he thinks "gets left out" of discussions about this battle. The right-handed batter is hitting .346. Fellow righty stick Drew Stubbs went 2-for-3 with an RBI on Tuesday, March 11, and is batting .278. He's not a certain candidate to hit leadoff when in the lineup; he hit fifth Tuesday and has moved around the lineup throughout spring action. Left-handed batter Corey Dickerson singled, and he's now hitting .346. Charlie Blackmon is hitting .227 and didn't play.

Fantasy Tip: Dickerson has the biggest potential of these four and should be your first fantasy target. The fact he hits on the majority platoon side helps his cause. Barnes could eat into Stubbs' at-bats if he keeps gaining favor. Blackmon seems like he's bringing up the rear in this race.

Rockies | Plenty of outfield competition

Mon, 17 Feb 2014 17:44:17 -0800

Colorado Rockies OF Corey Dickerson will compete with fellow left-handed batter OF Charlie Blackmon for at-bats and starts in the outfield. The Rockies also brought in OF Drew Stubbs, who is under a one-year, $4.1 million contract, so the team is likely to try and find playing time for him. The team also added OF Brandon Barnes during the offseason, and he was the starting center field for much of last season for the Houston Astros. Many of the available at-bats are likely to come from the leadoff spot.

Fantasy Tip: Whomever emerges at the top of Colorado's lineup will be a useful fantasy option, as they'll be tapping the plate frequently after being knocked around by the likes of Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki in the middle of the lineup.

Rockies | Carlos Gonzalez among leadoff options

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 18:08:30 -0800

Colorado Rockies manager Walt Weiss is considering several options to fill the vacant leadoff spot, including OF Carlos Gonzalez. OFs Charlie Blackmon and Corey Dickerson are also considered top candidates for the top spot in the order. 2B DJ LeMahieu, 2B Josh Rutledge, OF Brandon Barnes and OF Charlie Culberson are also others who could earn leadoff opportunities. Weiss said Friday, Dec. 6, that he is not ruling out other options.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez moving to the leadoff spot would mean a dip in his RBI numbers, but also an increase in his runs scored, and perhaps stolen base totals. Either way, he will be a stud fantasy option again in 2014.

Astros | Dexter Fowler acquired

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 14:17:40 -0800

The Houston Astros acquired OF Dexter Fowler and a player to be named from the Colorado Rockies Tuesday, Dec. 3, in exchange for SP Jordan Lyles and OF Brandon Barnes.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler's value doesn't change all that much with the move to Houston, where he'll start in center field. Lyles and Barnes are merely NL-only fodder. Lyles has room to grow, but Coors Field will negate any upside he has left. Barnes is more of a fourth outfield type that might struggle to find consistent playing time, like he did in Houston.
