Player Profile: Matt Barnes

I have one card of Matt Barnes, from 2011 Bowman Draft Picks and Prospects.

Playing career: The Red Sox first round draft pick in 2011, Matt Barnes made his pro debut in 2012, going 7-5 with a 2.85 ERA for Greenville and Salem.

Where he is now: In sixteen starts at AA Portland, he is 4-5 with a 5.32 ERA but has struck out 83 batters in 67.2 innings.

My memories: Only know him from his card.

Google Autocomplete results: He is third when you type Matt B, between Matt Bissonette, who participated in the mission to kill Osama Bin Laden and wrote a book about it, and Matt Bomer Gay, an actor. There are no references to the baseball player on the first page of results; most refer to an NBA player.
Coming up next: The next profile will be Richard Barnes.
