The Colorado Rockies have released 30-year old righty swinging outfielder Brandon Barnes. Barnes played in 48 games for the Rockies this year and he was 22 of 100 (.220 avg, .570 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 0 homers, 8 RBI and 1 stolen base. He played in 286 games in his three years with the Rockies and he was 161 of 647 (.249 avg, .671 OPS) with 77 runs scored, 10 homers, 52 RBI and 10 stolen bases. Barnes has now played in 465 games in his first five years in the show and he is 279 of 1,153 (.242 avg, .645 OPS) with 131 runs scored, 19 homers, 100 RBI and 22 stolen bases. This is not much of a loss for the Rockies, as Barnes was just not good of enough a hitter to play for them.
