Barreto went 3-for-6 with five RBI from a double and three-run home run in Triple-A Nashville's 13-3 win over Fresno on Thursday. He also scored twice.

Barreto is now slashing .320/.369/.510 with six homers and 27 RBI over 37 games with the Sounds. The 21-year-old shorstop is one of several promising prospects simmering just below the big-league level for Oakland, although the team currently appears committed to having him continue to get regular reps in the minors despite Marcus Semien's extended absence with a wrist injury.
