Top Tres Barrera News

  • Cardinals' Tres Barrera: Gets NRI from St. Louis

    Barrera signed a minor-league contract with the Cardinals on Friday that includes an invitation to major-league spring training, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The 28-year-old has seen big-league action in bits and pieces with the Nationals, collecting a .631 OPS in 162 plate appearances over three seasons. Barrera will likely to open 2023 at Triple-A Memphis.

  • Tres Barrera: Elects free agency

    Barrera rejected an outright assignment to Triple-A Rochester and elected free agency Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Barrera was removed from the Nationals' 40-man roster Thursday and will test free agency rather than report to Triple-A. The 28-year-old played in 19 big-league games last season and had a .180/.212/.200 slash line in 53 plate appearances.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Barrera cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Barrera served as a reserve catcher for Washington at times in 2022 and went 9-for-50 in 19 games. He won't stick on the 40-man roster through the offseason and is likely to open 2023 back at Triple-A.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Garners September call-up

    The Nationals recalled Barrera from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

    The addition of Barrera gives the Nationals a third catcher, which will perhaps allow the team to build in more rest days for No. 1 backstop Keibert Ruiz while allowing Riley Adams to pick up some work as a designated hitter. Barrera appeared in 14 games for Washington earlier in 2022, batting .182 with four RBI and two runs.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Call-up expected Thursday

    Barrera is expected to be called up by the Phillies on Thursday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Barrera was sent to Triple-A Rochester last week, but he'll rejoin the major-league club to begin the month of September since active rosters will expand from 26 to 28 players. Over 14 big-league games this year, the 27-year-old has hit just .182 with a double, four RBI, two runs, two walks and 11 strikeouts.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Optioned to Triple-A

    Barrera was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Barrera has served as the Nationals' backup catcher since early July, but he posted a paltry .441 OPS in 35 plate appearances over 14 games, so the team decided to send him back to Triple-A for the time being. It remains to be seen who will replace Barrera on Washington's roster, but Riley Adams is the most likely option.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Gets rare start

    Barrera went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Cubs.

    The 27-year-old has only started two of 10 games so far in August as Keibert Ruiz continues to get most of the work behind the plate. Since joining the big-league roster in early July, Barrera hasn't made a compelling case for a bigger role, going 5-for-27 (.185) with a double, four RBI and a 31.0 percent strikeout rate.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Two-RBI performance

    Barrera went 1-for-2 with two RBI in Saturday's loss to Miami.

    His two RBI came on a single in the second inning that saw Nelson Cruz and Lane Thomas cross the plate before Barrera advanced to second base on a throwing error -- the Marlins' third error of the inning. It was the catcher's first appearance this season, but it should give him confidence going forward after picking up a hit and two RBI. Barrera is the new backup behind Keibert Ruiz after Riley Adams was demoted.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Called up Friday

    Barrera was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Barrera will join the big league roster ahead of Friday's series opener versus the Marlins. He'll be set to make his season debut for the Nationals after he has posted a .256 batting average with seven homers, 24 RBI and 25 runs over 164 at-bats in 51 games with Rochester this year. Riley Adams was sent down to Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Heads back to minors

    The Nationals optioned Barrera to Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Barrera's demotion sets the stage for top catching prospect Keibert Ruiz to join the Nationals' 26-man roster ahead of Monday's series opener with the Phillies. Ruiz's arrival will leave fewer opportunities to go around for Riley Adams, who had been handling the larger portion of a timeshare behind the plate with Barrera. Over 107 plate appearances with the big club this season, Barrera has hit .264 with two home runs, 10 RBI and eight runs.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Homers in win

    Barrera went 3-for-4 with a homer, two singles and two RBI in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Marlins.

    Barrera provided one of two big swings for Washington on Tuesday when he took Miami starter Jesus Luzardo deep in the fourth inning for a two-run homer. The Nationals' catcher is now 8-for-17 in four games against the Marlins this season.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Not in Wednesday's lineup

    Barrera isn't starting Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Barrera will be out of the lineup for a third consecutive game as he continues to work in a timeshare at catcher. Riley Adams will remain behind the dish and bat eighth.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Sits Tuesday

    Barrera is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Barrera will be on the bench for the second straight game, but since he caught each of the previous three contests before that, he at least appears to be in a timeshare behind the dish with Riley Adams. Since rejoining Washington in late July, Barrera has gone 6-for-34 (.176 average) with three RBI and a run in 11 games.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Gets breather

    Barrera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against Atlanta.

    Barrera caught each of the Nationals' previous three games, so he'll just be getting a breather for the series finale. The 26-year-old's recent workload would suggest he's viewed as the team's No. 1 backstop ahead of Riley Adams, who will catch for starting pitcher Paolo Espino on Sunday.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Resting for Game 1 of twin bill

    Barrera is out of the lineup for the first game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Mets.

    Barrera will be on the bench for the front end of the twin bill while Riley Adams catches for Washington, but the 26-year-old should start behind the plate for the second game. While the Nationals wait for veteran Alex Avila (calf) to come off the injured list, Barrera and Adams are likely to remain locked into a timeshare at catcher.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Sitting Tuesday

    Barrera is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Mets, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    Barrera has just one hit in his last 19 at-bats dating back to July 31. He'll sit for the second time in three games Tuesday as Riley Adams works behind the plate.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Not in Saturday's lineup

    Barrera isn't starting Saturday against Atlanta, Mark Zuckerman of MASNSports.com reports.

    Barrera went 0-for-6 with a run, an RBI, a walk and three strikeouts across the last two games. Riley Adams will start at catcher and bat eighth.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Takes seat Wednesday

    Barrera is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Phillies.

    After working behind the plate in both of the Nationals' last two games, Barrera will give way to Riley Adams, who was one of two catcher prospects Washington acquired prior to last week's trade deadline. Expect manager Dave Martinez to distribute the starts between Barrera and Adams relatively equitably, unless one of the two performs dramatically better than the other.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Barrera is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

    The 26-year-old started the past three games and will receive the day off Sunday. Barrera should continue to see regular starts down the stretch for Washington following the departure of Yan Gomes ahead of the trade deadline.

  • Nationals' Tres Barrera: Recalled as 27th man

    Barrera was recalled from Triple-A Rochester as the 27th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Phillies, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

    Barrera was sent down Wednesday, but he'll start behind the plate in the second game of Thursday's twin bill. The 26-year-old has hit .323 with a home run, two doubles, four runs and two RBI since the All-Star break.
