Drafted in the supplemental 1st round (45th overall) by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2012 (signed for $1,000,000)
Barnes has a chance to go in the first round and probably won't last past the sandwich round, which would make him the second-highest draft pick in Texas Tech history behind Doug Harris (fifth overall, 1989). Barnes' plus righthanded power and the possibility that he could stick in center field make him attractive. He packs a lot of strength into his 6-foot-1, 219-pound frame and offers a lot of bat speed. He's willing to take walks when pitchers don't challenge him, though he may not hit for a high average because his swing can get rotational and he's a dead-pull hitter. Barnes has plus straight-line speed (6.6-6.7 seconds in the 60-yard dash) but it doesn't always play that way. He does have 50 steals in 56 career attempts. If Barnes has to move to corner--likely left field because he has a below-average arm--he has enough power to profile there.
