Austin Barnes is a natural middle infielder who converted to catching two years ago and shows good athleticism behind the plate. He's undersized at 5-foot-9 and 174 pounds, and scouts have doubts about his bat. His uncle is Mike Gallego, who played in the big leagues for 13 years and is now the third-base coach for Oakland.
