A versatile catcher who has played third base and even second base as a fill-in, Barrera is best when he's working behind the plate. While Barrera's fringy hit tool will likely keep him from ever projecting as a regular, his improved defense gives him a chance at a backup profile. Barrera has improved his receiving and blocking as a junior, and he was throwing out runners at a 60 percent clip even though his long arm action limits his average arm. As a hitter, Barrera has shown flashes of power--he hit three home runs in a four-game stretch in late March--but there is a lot of swing and miss that comes with his fringe-average power potential. As an experienced college catcher with defensive skills Barrera can expect to hear someone call his name in the top 10 rounds.
