Athletics prospect Jeremy Barfield has continued this offseason to make the transition to pitching.
The 25-year-old outfielder, and son of former major leaguer Jesse Barfield, began the transition halfway through the 2013 season. He worked in the instructional league then pitched a handful of games in the Dominican Winter League, and is now working at the team's facility in Arizona. The A's are hoping that the hard-throwing lefty can replicate the successful transition that Sean Doolittle has made, now one of the premiere relievers in the league. Sat, Nov 23, 2013 09:11:00 AM

2008 eighth-round pick Jeremy Barfield hit three homers Tuesday for low Single-A Kane County.

Barfield, another one of Jesse's sons, was originally drafted by the Mets in the ninth round in 2006. He didn't sign then, opting for a junior college instead. Now an A's prospect, he's hitting .359/.419/.667 with four homers in 11 games in the Midwest League. Previously something of a prospect as a pitcher, he has a very good arm in right field, and he doesn't lack for power potential. Making contact consistently is likely to be a problem for him as he climbs the ladder.
