Houston Astros OF Brandon Barnes, who was called up by the parent club in August, plans to play for about a month with Caracas of the Venezuelan Winter League immediately after the end of the season. Barnes played in Australia last winter. "There's great competition out there, and it will help me to go and play," Barnes said. "I'll keep refining my approach at the plate and just learn new things as I go along."
