Franklin Barreto likely to begin season in minors

Julian McWilliams reports Franklin Barreto will likely begin the season in Triple-A.

Fantasy Impact

Barreto was expected to make the Opening Day roster following Matt Olson's hand injury, but Oakland's recent acquisition of Kendrys Morales spoils that plan. The 23-year-old somewhat disappointed in the majors last season, but he was once considered a top prospect and is still young enough to turn things around. Barreto is a decent stash in dynasty leagues.

Franklin Barreto homers on Wednesday

Franklin Barreto went 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Fantasy Impact

Barreto has been back and forth between the majors and Triple-A this season, so it's doubtful that many fantasy owners have been relying on him. Still, he has the tools to succeed in the majors, so if he maintains consistent playing time, he could be an asset in deeper leagues.

Franklin Barreto optioned to Triple-A Nashville Tuesday

The Oakland Athletics on Tuesday reinstated Matt Chapman from the disabled list and optioned Franklin Barreto to Triple-A Nashville, Kyle Glaser of Baseball America reports.

Fantasy Impact

With no spot in the lineup available for regular at-bats, the Athletics are opting to send Barreto down to the minors where he has a clear path to playing time. The 22-year-old was batting .212 with three home runs through 52 at-bats with Oakland.

Franklin Barreto with two more homers

Fantasy Impact

It's been quite the three-game stretch for Barreto, who has hit three homers with nine RBIs over the span. That represents all of his homers and RBIs on the season. He's now sporting a triple slash of .185/.214/.519 over his first 27 at-bats of the season with the A's.

Franklin Barreto hits first homer

Franklin Barreto went 2-for-5 with a homer, three RBIs, and two runs scored Wednesday against the Padres.

Fantasy Impact

It was a nice day for Barreto, but it's been the exception rather than the rule this season. He's struggled overall to the tune of a .516 OPS. Despite being an exciting prospect, he's hard to trust for fantasy purposes at this point.
