A’s first baseman Daric Barton passed through waivers unclaimed after being designated for assignment and has decided to remain in the organization at Triple-A rather than become a free agent.
This is actually the third time Barton has gone unclaimed on waivers after being dropped from the A’s 40-man roster and it’ll be the eighth different season in which he’s spent at...
One of the Oakland A’s first baseman, Daric Barton, is not starting out the year well. With a .149 batting average and only seven hits in 47 at-bats, people are starting to wonder why the Athletics are keeping him in the lineup at all – especially when there are two other qualified first basemen in the dugout. However, since Brandon Moss and Alberto Callaspo have...

From 2005 to 2007, Barton was ranked in Baseball America’s Top 100 Prospects and was the Athletics #1 and #2 top prospect...
The Oakland Athletics hold the lead spot in the AL Wild Card race, but they are looking for a little more. Before Monday, the Athletics had only won one game out of the last five. Many think that since the Athletics did so well during the beginning and middle of the season, that this lull the Athletics’ are currently experience is a normal occurrence in the ups and...
