    • Athletics' Franklin Barreto: Hitting leadoff Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barreto will hit leadoff in Tuesday's game against the Tigers. Barreto has not started a game since Sept. 9, but he will be in there Tuesday and will occupy the top spot in the batting order with Marcus Semien coming off the bench. While Barreto will hit first Tuesday, he figures be challenged by Tigers starter and lefty Chad Bell, as he is just 1-for-15 with a 2:11 BB:K against southpaws this season.

    • Athletics' Franklin Barreto: Hitting second Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barreto will start at second base and bat second Sunday against the Mariners. The rookie will enter the lineup in place of Jed Lowrie, who receives a breather after starting 15 of the Athletics' last 16 contests. A likely long-term heir to a full-time role in the middle infield, Barreto may have to settle for sporadic at-bats in the final month of the season with both Lowrie and Marcus Semien seemingly in line to retain starting roles for the big club heading into 2018, assuming the Athletics exercise Lowrie's affordable $6 million club option this offseason.

    • Athletics' Franklin Barreto: Returns to big club
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barreto was recalled from Triple-A Nashville on Friday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports. Barreto homered in his big-league debut in July, but he didn't do much else of note during his first stint in the majors. The 21-year-old put together a strong season with Nashville and really came on strong in August (.349/.393/.550), but he may only see occasional starts in the middle infield over the rest of the season with Marcus Semien and Jed Lowrie holding down regular roles.

    • Barreto is 14-for-26 with two home runs over his last six games with Triple-A Nashville. Per Sounds play-by-play announcer Jeff Hem, the 21-year-old has hit both of his homers in the first inning of back-to-back games. Barreto returned to Nashville on July 8 after slashing .190/.261/.381 over 46 plate appearances across 11 games with the Athletics. He's enjoyed much more success against Triple-A pitching this season, slashing .284/.333/.448 with 15 doubles, five triples, 12 homers and 39 RBI over 89 games.

    • Athletics' Franklin Barreto: Sent down to Triple-A
      By RotoWire Staff

      Barreto was optioned to Triple-A Nasville on Saturday. The need for Barreto has become minimal since Marcus Semien returned from the disabled list earlier this week, so the team will send him down to get more regular playing time. Recognized as one of the top prospects in the Oakland system, the 21-year-old hit just .190 over 42 big league at-bats, but received some valuable experience and could certainly return for a late-season stint. He heads back to Triple-A for now, where he was slashing .281/.326/.428 with 32 RBI before being called up.
