Biography

Biography

Clint Harold Barmes is a shortstop in Major League Baseball who has played for the Colorado Rockies since 2003. He bats and throws right handed.

From 2003-04, Barmes posted a .292 batting average with two home runs and 12 RBI in 32 games played. In 2005 in 81 games Clint hit .289, 10 home runs, and 46 RBI.

2005 season

  • June 8 - Barmes suffered an injury that sidelined him until September after breaking his left collarbone in a fall while carrying a large slab of meat given to him as a gift by Todd Helton up the stairs in his apartment building in June 5. (Barmes initially told the team and the press that he got hurt carrying groceries, but later admitted that this was not the truth. He claimed that he was trying to prevent Helton from being embarrassed.) Barmes, who was leading National League rookies in most offensive categories, underwent surgery on June 7. He was hitting around .400 and led the major leagues in batting average for the first six weeks of the season. After a mild slump, he was still leading NL rookies in hitting (.329), runs (40), hits (74), doubles (16), home runs (8) and RBI (34) up until the time of his injury. His Rookie of the Year candidacy, however, was ruined by his freak injury, which he called "the craziest thing that's happened to me, by far." However, Barmes still finished eighth in the National League Rookie of the Year voting for the season.

2006 season

Barmes entered the 2006 season with high expectations. Many predicted a repeat of the beginning of the '05 season for Barmes in '06. Although Barmes set career highs in a number of offensive categories, his '06 season was widely considered a disappointment. He managed a subpar .220 batting average (the lowest of any starter in baseball) with only 7 home runs and a .264 on base percentage.

2007 season

As Spring Training prior to the 2007 season began, Barmes was informed that recently drafted prospect Troy Tulowitzki would be competing with him for the starting role in '07. After a Spring performance that mirrored his unimpressive '06 season, Tulowitzki was awarded the starting shortstop position with the Rockies. Subsequently, Barmes began the season with the Rockies Triple-A affiliate, the Colorado Springs Sky Sox. After an injury to starting second baseman Kazuo Matsui, Barmes was recalled to the Major League roster on April 15. After wearing jersey number 12 throughout his tenure in the Majors, Barmes switched to number 21 for the '07 season after veteran Steve Finley chose number 12 for the season.

Not long after being recalled, Barmes was sent down to Triple-A on May 1.
