According to Tim Williams of Pirates Prospects, Barrett Barnes is going to be activated off the disabled list, and will be joining the Indianapolis Indians on Sunday.
Barnes was the Pirates first round compensation pick in the 2012 MLB Draft out of Texas Tech. The 25-year-old outfielder had his best season last year with the Altoona Curve, where he batted .306 and posted an OPS of .853 in 124 games.
Injuries have played a significant role for Barnes during his minor league career. He was going to begin this season with Indianapolis, but a hamstring injury midway through Spring Training set him back. Barnes is currently the 30th ranked prospect in the Pirates system according to MLB Pipeline.
