Barnes didn't allow a run until his fifth start with the Greenville Drive, a total of 26 2/3 scoreless innings before that run came. In 26 2/3 innings, the righty has a 2-0 record, 0.34 ERA and 43 K's. He was simply overwhelming to hitters at the Single-A level.
According to Alex Speier of weei.com, Barnes will now be faced with a challenge as he has been promoted to the High-A Salem Red Sox of the Carolina League. Look to see how he progresses at the High-A level, it could tell us a lot about his future arrival in the big leagues.
