CHICAGO (AP) The Oakland Athletics have promoted infielder Franklin Barreto from Triple-A Nashville and placed infielder Chad Pinder on the 10-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

The 21-year-old Barreto is considered the top prospect in Oakland's farm system. He hit .281 with eight home runs and 32 RBIs in 68 games with Nashville.

Barreto was acquired in the Josh Donaldson trade from Toronto after the 2014 season.
