Player Notes
One of the last official additions to the Diamondbacks’ Opening Day roster, Barrett brings with him a large local fan base. Drafted out of ASU as a junior, he was the AZ High School Player of the Year in 2009, when he set all sorts of state records at Desert Ridge H.S. (Mesa), including homers (19) and RBIs (65). Drafted by the Blue Jays that year, he opted instead to go to ASU. Working out of the bullpen in the minors for the Diamondbacks, he collected 29 saves and combined for a 1.21 ERA between Visalia (High A) and Mobile in 2013 (his first full season) and then earned Southern League All-Star honors in 2014 with 12 saves and a 2.39 ERA at Mobile, which earned him a late-season promotion to Reno.
