News: Barton has a legitimate chance of earning a roster spot with the Blue Jays out of camp, Sportsnet.ca reports.
Impact: A good defender at first base, Barton's presence on the roster would potentially lead to more time at DH for Edwin Encarnacion. This spring, Barton is competing for a roster spot with Justin Smoak and perhaps to a lesser extent Danny Valencia, but the right-handed hitting Valencia is viewed as a likely platoon option for the Jays against left-handed starters.
