Brandon Barnes was called up from triple-A on Wednesday, and on Thursday he went 4-for-4 with a run and an RBI.
Barnes was called up to replace struggling outfielder Drew Stubbs, and answered the call with some authority in his first start in a Rockies uniform this season. While it is a small sample size, Barnes should get plenty of playing time while Corey Dickerson is on the DL. He would be a solid plug-and-play for any Colorado home series in 12-team leagues. Last year at Coors; .299/.338/.552 with 7 HR in limited playing time.
