Maikel Franco possible September call-up for Phillies
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/11/14) The Phillies are open to promoting third baseman Maikel Franco from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in September, per MLB.com.

Franco has been tearing it up at that level after a slow start with a .338 average, 11 doubles, five home runs and 28 RBI in 33 games since June.

He will certainly not be the only minor leaguer getting a look down the stretch for a team that has fallen out of contention. "We'll probably have about five or six guys," said general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. "I'm not really sure how many, but we're kicking some names around."

Maikel Franco unlikely to be recalled in August
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/6/14) Phillies third base prospect Maikel Franco is unlikely to join the big-league team before rosters expand in September, MLB.com reports.

"He's putting together some at-bats and some weeks of good contact and some better at-bats," manager Ryne Sandberg said. "Definitely steps in the right direction. If the case would be for him to come here, the best scenario would be with a lot of confidence and with positive results."

Franco got out to a slow start this season, but he has three home runs while hitting .325/.357/.600 over his last 10 games.

Maikel Franco 'isn't pushing' Cody Asche off third base just yet
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/20/14) The Phillies feel third baseman Cody Asche could make the switch to another position once prospect Maikel Franco is ready to take over at the hot corner. However, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said the team isn't at that crossroad yet since they don't see Franco as being ready for the majors, per The Philadelphia Inquirer.

"He could," Amaro Jr. said of a position switch for Asche. "He's athletic enough. But there is not anyone pushing him right now. Maikel isn't pushing him."

Maikel Franco starting to hit - could promotion be coming?
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/30/14) The Phillies have stressed that they won't promote third baseman Maikel Franco until he starts hitting at Triple-A Lehigh. Perhaps that time has come.

Franco owns a .238 batting average that is 101 points under what he achieved at the Double-A level a year ago. But he has five hits in his last 16 at-bats for a .313 mark. He also doubled and tripled in his last game.

The Phillies can use a productive third baseman with Cody Asche on the disabled list. There has also been speculation Franco could be promoted and platoon at first base with Ryan Howard.

Ranking the most stashable prospects
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/28/14) With word that Maikel Franco could in fact replace the injured Cody Asche if he gets hot enough at Triple-A Lehigh Valley during the time Asche is sidelined (for more, check out the latest Prospects Report), the Phillies third baseman has officially become one of the most stashable prospects in Fantasy. Of course, by now, that list has become so long that you may need help prioritizing. So here you go.

Gregory Polanco is still No. 1. He's way too good for Triple-A, and even if the Pirates are waiting because of Super 2 concerns, he may be only three weeks away. Oscar Taveras may be only one week away if you buy that the Cardinals plan to promote him for their stretch of seven games in AL parks at the beginning of June. He may not be as prepared for the big leagues as Polanco, but he has arguably more upside.

Jon Singleton is still "on deck" for the Astros and crushing it at Triple-A Oklahoma City. The comes Franco. Andrew Heaney, the top pitcher of choice, edges out Joc Pederson, who seems like a long shot for a promotion even with Carl Crawford's ankle injury.

Boom! End of list. Now, go make us proud.
