Auburn pitcher Mason Barnett is expected to have a big 2021 college baseball season on The Plains.

D1 Baseball put out their 2022 Top 100 Draft Prospects and they ranked Barnett as the 36th best college baseball player entering the season.

I reached out to Lindsay Crosby who covers Auburn Baseball for NewsTalk WANI and the “Locked On Auburn” podcast for a scouting report.

Here’s what he said about the exciting pitcher.

Barnett is a 6-1, 205lb junior. The righthander features four pitches with two distinct breaking balls and a fastball that sits 92-94 and can reach 96. His 12-6 curveball is a plus pitch in the mid-70s that he uses to steal strikes early in the count, while his slider is a tight spinning breaker that he throws at 79-83 as a putaway pitch. His physical build is stout with a long arm action, but his occasional command issues and predominate fastball usage may relegate him to a reliever at the MLB level without further refinement.

Barnett is expected to be a key piece for Butch Thompson’s Auburn Tigers this season.
