Franklin Barreto doubles three times

Franklin Barreto went 3-for-5 with three doubles, two runs, and one RBI Sunday against the Brewers.

Fantasy Impact

Barreto is hitting .333 with a .965 OPS this spring and is making his case for the A’s second base position. At 24, Barreto still has a shot to regain his power stroke and he also offers stolen base potential. Barreto is worth keeping an eye on if he wins the job, he could provide sneaky value from a middle infield spot.

Franklin Barreto triples Monday night

Franklin Barreto started at second base Monday night against the Cubs going 1-for-2 with a triple, two runs scored, and a walk.

Fantasy Impact

Barreto displayed his power potential in the minors in 2018, but his power numbers were down across the board last year, mostly due to a 58 percent ground ball rate. Barreto is still just 24 so time is on his side for improvement, and there is potential for double digit homers and stolen bases if he can improve his contact percentage and fly ball rate. The A’s have plenty of second base options, keeping Barreto as more of a wait and see player this spring.

Franklin Barreto crushes three-run homer

Franklin Barreto was 1-for-3 with a three-run homer and a walk in Saturday's 13-2 win over the White Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Heading into this game, Barreto was 2-for-23 with 10 strikeouts since getting called up. He has been getting the bulk of the starts at second base, and is slashing .115/.148/.385 with two homers and four RBI in 27 plate appearances for the Athletics this season.

Franklin Barreto smashes first homer of the season

Franklin Barreto went 1-for-3 with a solo homer in Friday's 5-2 victory over the Mariners.

Fantasy Impact

Since being called up from Triple-A, Barreto has gone 2-for-16 in four games. He has also scored three runs in that span, but is currently in a platoon with Jurickson Profar. Barreto is worth monitoring in deep leagues as long he continues to receive the bulk of the playing time at second base over Profar.

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.
