SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Rockies outfielder Brandon Barnes left the club on Monday to be with his wife, Shawn, for the birth of the couple's second child.

Tatum May Barnes, who checked in at 7-pounds, 3-ounces, was born at 5:43 p.m. MT. The couple also has another daughter, Kenadie.

Barnes, 27, obtained from the Astros in an offseason trade, is batting .340 with a .365 on-base percentage, one home run, three doubles and three RBIs this spring. Barnes and non-roster outfielder Tim Wheeler were named on Sunday as co-winners of the Abby Greer Award for Spring Training excellence.
