Columbus has Answers: Scott Barnes

I've been working with the broadcast crew with the Columbus Clippers (AAA). My observations of this team have allowed me to form some definite conclusions. As expected, the starting rotation won't last in Cleveland. As you already know Mitch Talbot is flat out bad and Josh Tomlin's consistency has waned because of location issues.   Zach MacAllister is the popular decision for a potential candidate because of his great numbers, but in terms of ability and stuff i would give scotty barnes a look. Maybe not someone that you call up right now, but if all hell continues to break loose I could definitely see this kid being a fine piece. He has a quirky, deceptive left-handed delivery coupled with a solid fastball and changeup and dynamite slider. His slider is something he struggled with earlier on in his starts, but he has learned to control this pitch and now he has a great three pitch arsenal with room to develop other pitches as well. Barnes has allowed only 4 earned runs in his last 4 starts in which he has pitched 5+ innings in each of those respective starts. The strikeout totals for each of those 4 starts are even more impressive: 9 9 8 7. He's got the tools and ability to make a big league impact with the indians this season and for the future i look for barnes to be a key piece to cleveland's up and coming rotation,
