Anthony DiComo of MLB.com is reporting that the Mets have claimed Jacob Barnes off of waivers from the Angels.
The right-hander put up a 5.50 ERA during the 2020 season and owns a career ERA of 4.36 throughout the span of five seasons.
According to mlbtraderumors, the Mets have claimed right handed reliever Jacob Barnes from the Angels. Barnes had success with the Brewers from 2016-2018, but has struggled after leaving Milwaukee.
Overall in his career Barnes has pitched to a 4.36 ERA, but his FIP is a lot lower at 3.85.
In 18 innings this year, he struck out 24 and pitched to a 2.25 FIP, but his overall ERA wasn’t good at 5.50.
Barnes relies on his cut fastball as he used his cutter more than half of the time. He has a big arm as his 4 seamer reaches mid-high 90’s.
Lets hope Barnes can return to his Brewers days, were he collected an ERA+ over 100.
