A first rounder from just three seasons back, Daric Barton, 20, has already reached triple-A Sac. He's almost Billy Beane's idol going .316 / .439 / .491 in AA last year, and though his power is not as impressive, Barton displays excellent discipline and pure hitting capabilities. The first baseman had 32 walks to 26 K in the minors this year and a .389 OBP, but faced a huge setback for two months.

Barton, considered the best first base prospect in baseball and the best spect in the A's system, is out 6-to-8 weeks with a fractured bone in his left arm. Despite his impressive offensive production, defense hasn't been that impressive. His BA in May was also sub-.200. This will certainly hinder his development and probably keep Dan Johnson at first.

I drafted him as one of my minor leaguers in my dynasty league a few years back since I thought I could play him at catcher when he comes up. I'm probably going to trade him though since I really don't need him now that he plays 1st(already got Tex and Helton).

BTW he was involved in the Mulder trade wasn't he?

The guy's been one of the better players recently. If you don't have him in a keeper, first kick yourself in the face, then pick him up.
