Barnes becomes the third West Virginia player to be honored by the league this season. Stetson Allie was twice named Player-of-the-Week while Orlando Castro was also selected as the Pitcher-of-the-Week once. Both Allie and Castro were promoted during the league's All-Star break and are now playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates High-A affiliate in Bradenton.
Jamestown 1B Danny Collins was named player of the week in the short-season Single-A New York-Penn League.
Recently drafted hitters sometimes need time to adjust to the wooden bats of pro ball. That doesn't seem to be an issue for Collins, the Pirates' 13th-round pick earlier this month. The 22-year-old first baseman went deep in his debut June 17 before homering in three straight games between Thursday and Saturday. Collins has scored in each of his seven games as a pro, leading the Jammers to an early 5-2 record.
