Tucker Barnhart Cincinnati Reds Career
Barnhart was named to the Reds’ Opening Day roster as a backup to Brayan Pea after Devin Mesoraco went on the disabled list to start the season.
Barnhart debuted in the majors against the St. Louis Cardinals on April 3rd. He went 0-for-4 with one strikeout in his first start at catcher (with Homer Bailey as the opening pitcher).
Barnhart earned his first big-league hit two days later, a single off Dillon Gee of the New York Mets; he went 2-for-4 for the game.
When Mesoraco was activated on April 7, Barnhart was optioned to the Louisville Bats of the Class AAA International League.
He was eventually recalled by the Reds, and on May 1, he hit his first major league home run, a single shot off Milwaukee Brewers’ Marco Estrada in the fifth inning.
On May 18, he was optioned back to Louisville. The Reds recalled Barnhart on July 6, with Pea on the paternity list and having to play more first base due to injuries. On July 11, Barnhart was optioned back to Louisville.
Barnhart started 67 games at catcher for the Reds in 2015 and 108 games in 2016 due to injuries to Mesoraco.
Barnhart signed a four-year, $16 million contract deal with the Reds on September 22, 2017, which included a $7.5 million club option for the 2022 season.
He was the best catcher in the National League in terms of wins above replacement and caught stealing percentage.
He also has the most runners caught stealing in the major leagues (32). He received his first Gold Glove Award after the 2017 season.
He was placed on the disabled list in June 2019 after suffering a moderate abdominal and oblique strain. He switched from switch hitting to left-handed hitting in late August 2019.
