Daniel Barone was drafted by the Florida Marlins in the 11th round of the 2004 amateur draft out of Sonoma State University.
Barone was in the game for six seasons, and put up generally league average numbers at a starter in the minors.
He was called up to the Marlins on August 10, 2007, to become the fifth starting pitcher in the Florida Marlins rotation, filling the empty spot after Florida sent Byung-Hyun Kim to the Arizona Diamondbacks on waivers. He went to the bullpen when the Diamondbacks released Kim and the Marlins picked him back up. Barone became a free agent at the end of the season.
On June 25, 2009, Barone signed a minor league contract with the Oakland Athletics. He pitched to a 2-8 record with a 6.55 ERA in 17 games that year between two teams in the A’s minor league system and retired after the season.
