|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(7/27/14) Blue Jays designated hitter Juan Francisco hit his 16th home run Sunday against the Yankees.

(7/24/14) Blue Jays first baseman Juan Francisco narrowly missed hitting for the cycle in Thursday's 8-0 win over the Red Sox. He hit a two-run homer, a two-run single and a triple, finishing with four RBI and two runs scored.
Francisco only needed a double to complete the cycle. He's batting .242 with 15 homers and 39 RBI in 215 at-bats.
|Scuffling Juan Francisco not in Wednesday lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) Third baseman Juan Francisco will be riding the bench when the Blue Jays host Boston on Wednesday night. Munenori Kawasaki is set to start at that spot instead.
Francisco is hitless in four games since July 13, going 0 for 11 during that stretch.
|Juan Francisco smacks 14th home run Monday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(7/8/14) Blue Jays infielder Juan Francisco went 2 for 3 with a solo home run in his team's 5-2 loss to the Angels Monday.
Francisco gave his team a brief 2-1 lead with his fifth-inning home run before the Angels scored four runs in the bottom of the inning. The infielder has struggled to hit since a big May performance, and he is just 15 for 81 with five home runs since the beginning of June. Francisco has hit .237/.311/.521 with 14 home runs and 33 RBI in 190 at-bats.
|Juan Francisco nails 13th homer in defeat of Brewers |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/2/14) Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco has slowed down considerably since a tremendous roll in May, but he has clobbered occasional home runs. He blasted a two-run shot Wednesday afternoon in the fourth inning to help his team beat Milwaukee.
Francisco, who also walked, had had four home runs in the last four weeks. He now has 13 on the season.
|You can't say Juan Francisco didn't get his shot in 2013. He began the year as Atlanta's regular third baseman before the Braves realized they had a batting title contender in Chris Johnson. Fortunately, they found a taker for Francisco in the Brewers, who were all too eager to move him across the diamond with Corey Hart's prognosis growing bleaker and bleaker. Francisco was exactly as advertised, struggling to make contact in between long home runs. He had his place in Fantasy as a cheap source of power, but his particular skill set generally doesn't keep teams coming back for more. If the Brewers find themselves in another predicament at the corners, Francisco could get enough at-bats to factor in Fantasy. He might even get a look in NL-only Rotisserie drafts with so little power available in the late rounds. Most likely, though, he'll have a hard time repeating last year's numbers.
