San Diego Padres: position battle: shortstop

Clint Barmes Let me preface this article by saying the Padres don’t have a shortstop. Oh, they have Alexi Amarista and Clint Barmes and another body or two, but they don’t have a starting quality shortstop they can play everyday. It’s not just the 40-man roster that’s barren with middle-infield depth. There’s nobody in AAA or AA ready to make the jump sometime midseason...

Polanco down, Tabata up, Nix gone, Barmes back

The headline covers the Bucs’ notable roster moves on Monday: Gregory Polanco to Indianapolis, Jose Tabata back up from Indy, Jayson Nix designated for assignment, and Clint Barmes activated off the DL. Polanco going to the minors is a bit of a shock – especially if you’d have told me this would be happening a couple months ago – but it does make some sense. The rookie has...

Mercer and Barmes: Defensive Difference in Pittsburgh

Jordy Mercer is the new starting shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Clint Barmes is now a moving part, an accomplished glove man on call at multiple infield positions. The shift will have an impact on both sides of the ball. From an offensive standpoint, the changing of the guard makes perfect sense. The 35-year-old Barmes […]

Pirates reach 1-year deals with Edinson Volquez, Clint Barmes

The Pittsburgh Pirates have signed right-hander pitcher Edinson Volquez and infielder Clint Barmes to one-year deals. The team made the announcement on Friday.

Barmes is back

To the surprise of nobody (but to the chagrin of many), the Pirates have re-signed shortstop Clint Barmes to a one year deal worth $2 million. Barmes will probably be taking a reduced role behind Jordy Mercer as a backup, late inning defensive replacement, and occasional starter. He made $10.5M over the last two years, so this is a pretty significant pay cut for him….but I think...
