  • Marlins Acquire Matt Barnes From Red Sox

    The Boston Red Sox and Miami Marlins have reportedly made a deal, per a tweet from The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal on Monday morning. According to Rosenthal's tweet, Boston is trading reliever Matt Barnes to Miami for fellow relief pitcher Richard Bleier. Barnes pitched to a 4.31 ERA, a 3.87 FIP, 34 strikeouts, and 21 walks in 39.2 innings for Boston last season while adding eight saves and four holds. Bleier, meanwhile, turned in a 3.55 ERA and a 3.27 FIP in 50.2 innings for the Marlins, while adding 32 strikeouts, 10 walks, seven holds and a save. Of the duo, Barnes likely has more potential for save opportunities this coming season in Miami than Bleier does in Boston given Kenley Jansen's presence at the back end of the Red Sox bullpen.

  • Matt Barnes Designated For Assignment Tuesday

    The Boston Red Sox officially designated relief pitcher Matt Barnes for assignment on Tuesday, per the Athletic's Jen McCaffrey. The move was made to make room for recently-signed outfielder Adam Duvall. The 32-year-old righty did see some high-leverage situations over the course of the 2022 season but ended with an 0-4 record, eight of 10 save opportunities converted, and four holds to go with a 4.31 ERA, 1.44 WHIP, and 19.3% strikeout rate. He also missed time in the middle of the season with right shoulder inflammation. Barnes did earn 24 saves for the Red Sox in 2021, so he may be able to find a high-leverage spot with another team.
