“At times, when I was pitching well, obviously you feel good about yourself,” Barreda said. “But I knew that with one outing, I could be the guy who was gone, who was no longer in the organization because that’s how baseball is. I’m realistic. I was realistic with what I was. I was an older guy, so I knew I had to perform day-in and day-out. and go about things the right way, day-by-day. As days passed by, it felt further. Even this month, when this one started, seeing guys get called up I was like, ‘Dang, that’s awesome. But when is that going to be me? Is that ever going to be me?’ I’m not going to lie, I was losing hope, especially this last week.”
