Franklin Barreto Having A Strong Spring

Oakland Athletics second baseman Franklin Barreto is off to a strong start this spring as he competes for the starting second base job. Barreto has 11 hits and nine RBI in 14 games this spring leading to a cool 1.075 OPS. Obviously the sample size is small, but Barreto has upside based on his 19 homers and 15 stolen bases in Triple-A last year. Jorge Mateo is having a solid spring as well, and whoever wins the job will have late-round flier appeal in category-based fantasy leagues. Both players should be owned in dynasty leagues, and are names to monitor this spring for redraft leagues.

Franklin Barreto Will Make Wild-Card Roster

Oakland Athletics second basemanFranklin Barreto will make the wild-card roster for Wednesday's game against the Rays, according to a source. Barreto will be an option off the bench as a pinch-runner like he was in last year's wild-card game. The 23-year-old Venezuelan had just 57 at-bats with the A's this year and hit .138/.263/.401 with two homers, six runs and five stolen bases. He did steal one base as well. Barreto is unlikely to get any starts in the postseason if the A's advance past Tampa Bay, and if he does, he won't be much of a DFS option.

Franklin Barreto Getting His Opportunity

The Oakland Athletics called up infielder Franklin Barreto from the minors in order to give him a real opportunity for regular playing time at second base. The 23-year-old will be the everyday second baseman if he shows that he can produce at the plate. If he struggles, he'll be sent back to the minors. This is of course bad news for Jurickson Profar, who has been a disappointment in his first year in Oakland and as a former top prospect. Barreto has four hits in 29 at-bats (.138) with two home runs and four RBI in nine games with the A's this season. He's worth a roster spot in AL-only leagues while he's getting the opportunity to play regularly.
