Drafted in the 14th round (423rd overall) by the Chicago White Sox in 2013
Barnette was a ninth-round pick of the Red Sox in 2010 but opted to attend Charlotte and has put together a solid career. He has a strong frame at 6-foot-3, 210 pounds and is a good athlete. He doesn't have explosive stuff but gets outs with a sinker/slider combination and strike-throwing savvy. He can get up to 93 mph with his fastball, though he usually pitches with average velocity that plays up because of his sink. His slider is a solid pitch that sits in the low 80s. He has shown a curveball, but scouts don't think it will be a factor, and his changeup is fair. Opinions vary about whether he'll be a starter or reliever, but most see him as a solid arm that fits around the 10th round.
