RP - BOS
Expert NoteView More Notes
Barnes should be considered the clubhouse leader for the closer's role in Boston after he tallied nine saves last season, but it's hardly a given that he'll keep the role. His walk rate has been above 13% for each of the last two seasons, and his WHIP is 1.38 over that span. Adam Ottavino, Darwinzon Hernandez, and Hirokazu Sawamura are in play to take over for Barnes if he struggles. For now, particularly because he hasn't yet been named the closer, consider Barnes on the very tail end of draftable relievers in fantasy.

Barnes earned nine saves during the 2020 season, posting a 4.30 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP. He'll likely once again serve in a late-inning role for Boston in 2021.
