The barrel is a perfect extension of the lead forearm. The forearm and barrel are aligned.

Compared to the infamous position showed many times of the lead forearm at extension and the barrel is 90 degrees to the forearm.

I’ll post some pics
I'll save you the trouble... 😉

As we have learned from our resident physics prof, in a multi-hinge pendulum, the velocity of the rod (bat) is greatest when it gets to alignment with the arm (lead forearm). We also see this alignment happen (or very close to it) at contact with most top hitters. It has become a check-point I look for. Hitters who are not getting to alignment are often late with their barrel acceleration.
