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.

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.
