Drafted in the 4th round (136th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2019 (signed for $1,000,000)
A 6-foot-1, 185-pound outfielder committed to Oregon, Barber has exciting pop in his lefthanded bat and impressed scouts with his bat speed and running ability last summer at the Area Code Games. Some scouts thought he had one of the quickest bats of the event, which is saying something considering the amount of talent there annually. Barber shows above-average raw power in batting practice, though it’s mostly to the pull-side during games. This spring, Barber has more than handled himself with the bat, including a three-homer performance in his first game of the season—though Barber does face lower-level high school competition. Defensively, while Barber is a plus runner now, some scouts believe he will wind up in a corner in the future.
