Barberie attended Gahr High School in Cerritos, California, and played for the school's baseball team. He enrolled at the Cerritos College and transferred to the University of Southern California (USC) and played college baseball for the USC Trojans baseball team in the Pacific-10 Conference. In 1988, Barberie was named to the All-Pacific-10 Conference's first team.

Professional career

The Montreal Expos selected Barberie in the seventh round of the 1988 Major League Baseball (MLB) Draft. Barberie made his major league debut with the Expos on June 16, 1991. He had a .353 batting average in 136 at-bats for the Expos in the 1991 season. With Delino DeShields serving as the Expos' starting second baseman, the Expos played Barberie as their third baseman in 1992, as the Expos moved Tim Wallach to first base. He struggled in the 1992 season, was demoted to the minor leagues during the season, and finished with a .232 batting average for the Expos.

The Florida Marlins, an expansion team, selected Barberie from the Expos in the 1992 MLB expansion draft; he was the third player chosen by the Marlins. He was a member of the inaugural Marlins team that began play in Major League Baseball in 1993. He recorded the first hit in Marlins franchise history, a single off of Orel Hersheiser, on Opening Day. Barberie had a .277 batting average in the 1993 season. In May 1994, Barberie got chili pepper juice in his eye when putting in his contact lenses, was temporarily blinded, and missed that day's game as a result. Barberie led the National League in errors committed by a second baseman in 1994. Though he also had a .301 batting average, the Marlins acquired Quilvio Veras to replace Barberie as their second baseman after the 1994 season, and traded Barberie to the Baltimore Orioles for Jay Powell. He started at second base for the Orioles through June 4, but he struggled and was replaced as their starting second baseman with Manny Alexander.
