Los Angeles Dodgers DH Austin Barnes went 1-for-1 at the plate on Saturday, hitting a solo homer in the Dodgers' 7-4 win over the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact:

Barnes has been fantastic when he gets behind the plate this season as he carries an OPS of .931 with four home runs through 16 games this season. The catcher would be of more value if he was one a different team, but unfortunately for him and managers who would like to roster him he is log jammed behind Will Smith at the catcher position and should only be used as a pick up and drop type of player when he is confirmed to be in the lineup.
