    The Giants were given quite a scare last night when right-hander Tim Lincecum was hit in the inside of his left knee by a line drive off the bat of Athletics first baseman Daric Barton in the fourth inning and had to be helped off the field. However, it appears that things could have been…

  10. Yoenis Cespedes gets no help in Oakland’s Game 1 loss

    Oct 5, 2013, 1:19 AM EST

    Division Series - Detroit Tigers v Oakland Athletics - Game One

    A triple and a two-run homer from Yoenis Cespedes simply wasn’t enough for the A’s Friday as the Tigers took Game 1 of the ALDS 3-2. Cespedes was responsible for two-thirds of Oakland’s hits in the game. The other was a little infield single from Brandon Moss in the seventh. Immediately after that was when…

  11. Tigers get to Bartolo Colon to take an early 3-0 lead

    Oct 4, 2013, 9:51 PM EST

    Bartolo Colon

    Athletics starter Bartolo Colon got off to a very shaky start to kick off Game 1 of the ALDS against the Tigers. Austin Jackson doubled to right to lead off the inning. Colon then hit Torii Hunter with a pitch, and followed it up with a first-pitch meatball to the hobbled Miguel Cabrera, who drove…

  13. 2013 MLB Draft: Round 6-10 notes – Braves GM picks his son

    Jun 7, 2013, 8:11 PM EST

    Kyle Wren, Brandon Hohl

    - One big thing to remember here: the new draft rules that kicked in last year really sucked the air out of these rounds. Instead of going for upside guys, a lot of teams are drafting college seniors in rounds 5-10 and then trying to sign them well under slot, freeing up money for more…

  14. Daric Barton passed through waivers unclaimed … again

    May 21, 2013, 2:46 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    For the second time in a month Daric Barton was placed on waivers by the A’s and passed through without being claimed by any of the other 29 teams. Our own Bill Baer wondered over the weekend if Barton could be a fit for the Mets or other teams getting little production from first base,…

  15. Is Daric Barton a fit for the Mets?

    May 18, 2013, 11:00 PM EST

    Ike Davis, Marvin Hudson

    The Athletics designated first baseman Daric Barton for assignment earlier today as the 27-year-old was carrying a sluggish .143 average through 23 plate appearances. On the other side of the country, the Mets have just about hit their tipping point with Ike Davis as D.J. Short pointed out earlier. Davis is hitting .156 with 46…

  16. No teams wanted Daric Barton, so he’ll stay with the A’s

    Apr 4, 2013, 2:48 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Once upon a time Daric Barton was a stud prospect who was swapped (with Dan Haren) for an in-his-prime Mark Mulder and not so long ago he led the league in walks as a 24-year-old, drawing 110 free passes on the way to hitting .273 with a .393 on-base percentage in 2010. And today he…

  17. Daric Barton, Athletics avoid arbitration with one-year deal

    Nov 30, 2012, 7:02 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that the Athletics and first baseman Daric Barton have avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $1.1 million contract. He could earn an additional $250,000 with incentives. Barton, 27, earned the same $1.1 million this past season while batting just .204/.338/.292 with one home run and a…

  18. Athletics activate Brandon McCarthy, demote Daric Barton to Triple-A

    Jun 2, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    brandon mccarthy

    The Athletics made a pair of roster moves this morning, activating right-hander Brandon McCarthy from the 15-day disabled list while demoting first baseman Daric Barton to Triple-A Sacramento. McCarthy hasn’t pitched since May 17 due to a strained right shoulder. The 28-year-old has battled shoulder problems at various points during his career, but he managed…

  19. Manny Ramirez will have to produce in minors before call-up

    May 24, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Manny Ramirez

    Manny Ramirez is eligible to return from his 50-game suspension on May 30, but manager Bob Melvin indicated yesterday that the A’s aren’t committed to adding him then unless he actually starts hitting in the minors first. Ramirez is currently on a 10-game rehab stint at Triple-A, but so far the 39-year-old hasn’t shown many…

  20. A’s activate Daric Barton from disabled list, designate Brandon Allen for assignment

    Apr 9, 2012, 5:05 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Brandon Allen went from Opening Day first baseman to designated for assignment in the span of four games, as the A’s dropped him from the 40-man roster today to make room for Daric Barton‘s return from the disabled list. Now that he’s recovered from September shoulder surgery Barton figures to be Oakland’s primary first baseman…

  21. A’s place first baseman Daric Barton on disabled list

    Apr 4, 2012, 3:49 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Daric Barton isn’t sufficiently recovered from September shoulder surgery, so he’ll begin the season on the disabled list while the A’s go with Brandon Allen and Kila Ka’aihue at first base. Barton was once firmly established as Oakland’s long-term first baseman and had an underrated, All-Star caliber season in 2010 with a .393 on-base percentage…

  22. Manny Ramirez, minor leaguer

    Mar 13, 2012, 10:47 AM EST

    Manny Ramirez

    Manny Ramirez‘s playing time in big-league camp will be limited going forward because the A’s need to give at-bats to players who aren’t suspended for the first 50 games of the season. Ramirez has just eight at-bats in major-league games so far and manager Bob Melvin told Jane Lee of MLB.com that most of his…

  23. Daric Barton gets cortisone shot in shoulder, unlikely to be ready for Opening Day

    Mar 5, 2012, 2:14 PM EST

    Baltimore Orioles v Oakland Athletics

    Oakland’s first base/corner outfield/designated hitter logjam won’t include Manny Ramirez for at least 50 games and may also be lessened by Daric Barton‘s shoulder problems. Barton, who underwent surgery to repair a partially torn labrum in September, received a second cortisone injection this morning and will be shut down for at least a few days.…

  24. What Manny Ramirez brings the A’s

    Here’s was Oakland’s projected lineup two weeks ago: 2B Jemile Weeks – S CF Coco Crisp – S LF Seth Smith – L C Kurt Suzuki – R RF Josh Reddick – L 3B Scott Sizemore – R DH Brandon Allen – L 1B Daric Barton – L SS Cliff Pennington – S And here’s…

  25. The Oakland A’s in 2014

    Feb 13, 2012, 6:32 PM EST

    Billy Beane

    Though they’ve since made moves geared more for the short-term in re-signing Coco Crisp and trading for Seth Smith, the A’s pretty much gave up on 2012 when they shipped out pitchers Gio Gonzalez, Trevor Cahill and Andrew Bailey for youngsters. That’s still true even after they anted up $36 million for Yoenis Cespedes. Their eyes are…
