Barrera had his contract selected from Double-A Harrisburg by the Nationals on Sunday, Dan Kolko of MASN Sports reports.
The 24-year-old will provide some additional catching depth after Kurt Suzuki (elbow) got hurt Saturday. Barrera had a .249/.323/.381 slash line with eight home runs in 101 games at Double-A.
