Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart "will play a lot" with C Devin Mesoraco (shoulder) possibly out for the rest of the year with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, according to manager Bryan Price. C Ramon Cabrera will serve as the backup, and C/3B Jordan Pacheco is the third backstop if a need arises. Barnhart, a switch-hitter, has improved his offensive game and has been hitting the ball hard this year.
Fantasy Tip: Barnhart has 14 hits in 47 at-bats (.298) this year after slashing .252/.324/.326 with three homers and 18 RBI in 242 at-bats in 2015. He's a second catcher option for those in two-catcher or NL-only leagues. He could be a decent short-term replacement if you own Mesoraco or d'Arnaud.

Cincinnati Reds C Tucker Barnhart is not in the starting lineup against Milwaukee Brewers SP Jimmy Nelson Sunday, Sept. 6. C Ramon Cabrera will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Barnhart ($2,700, 5.4% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Cabrera was one of the players called up at the start of the month and should not be a starting option at this point.
