NEW YORK (AP) - Scott Barry, completing just his second season as a full-time major league umpire, has been selected to work the AL division series between Detroit and Oakland.
The 36-year-old was the lone umpire with no previous postseason experience announced Friday among the 24 for the division series. He was a minor league ump from 2000-10 and started as a big league fill-in in 2005.
Barry will be in right field for Saturday's opener, which means under the normal rotation he will not work behind the plate in the best-of-five series.
Dana DeMuth heads that crew, with Gerry Davis, Brian Gorman and Joe West crew chiefs for the other series.
