Austin Barnes signs two-year extension

Austin Barnes confirmed that he has signed a two-year extension with the Dodgers. The deal is worth $3.5M per year.

Fantasy Impact

Barnes is having another quiet season at the plate. He is slashing .179/.307/.357 with four home runs and 12 RBIs in 84 at-bats. The 32-year-old will remain with Los Angeles as the backup catcher and will have little fantasy value going forward.

Austin Barnes hits solo homer in ninth inning as Dodgers win Saturday

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.

Austin Barnes collects three hits in loss Friday night

Los Angeles Dodgers C Austin Barnes went 3-for-4 at the plate on Friday, hitting a double along with two singles, and walking once in the Dodgers' 12-10 loss to the Phillies.

Fantasy Impact

Barnes has contniued to be dominant at the plate so far this season when he plays as he is now slashing .286/.359/.600. The Dodgers catcher has only played in 12 games so far this season but with an OPS of .959 and three home runs in those starts he is worth a look when he is in place to start even if its on a temporary basis.

Austin Barnes hits solo homer in Game 1 win Saturday

Los Angeles Dodgers C Austin Barnes went 2-for-4 at the plate in Game 1 on Saturday, hitting a solo homer and a 3-run RBI single in the Dodgers' 7-0 win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Barnes brought in nearly half of the Dodgers runs on Saturday in Game 1 and is batting .261 on the season. Unfortunately the Dodgers catcher is not worth rostering as he has only played in eight of their games so far but is certainly worth picking up temporarily if one so desires as Barnes has three home runs over those eight games played.

Austin Barnes homers in win over Twins

Austin Barnes went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 7-0 win over the Twins.

Fantasy Impact

Through five games, Barnes is the homerun leader for this stacked Los Angeles Dodgers lineup with two. However, this will not stand for much longer, as Barnes is a backup catcher that will likely only start when Clayton Kershaw is on the bump or when Will Smith needs a rest.
