Phillies 3B Maikel Franco goes yard on Saturday

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/23/15) Phillies rookie third baseman Maikel Franco launched his second home run of the season in the 8-1 win over the Nationals on Saturday. Franco's two-run bomb came off of Stephen Strasburg in the third inning, giving the Phillies an early 4-0 lead.

"I'm just trying to see a good pitch to hit," Franco said, per MLB.com. "He threw me a couple fastballs the first AB, and I was just ready for the fastball. He threw me one there, and I made good contact."

Franco, who also chipped in a single in four at-bats, is now hitting .286 through his first 35 at-bats this year. He has hit safely in all but three games so far. 

Phillies' Maikel Franco plates three runs in loss to Rockies

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/20/15) Phillies rookie third baseman Maikel Franco drove in a career-high three runs in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

Franco singled in a run in the third and singled in two more in eighth to tie the game before Nick Hundley launched a solo home run to give Colorado a 6-5 victory. Franco added a double and finished 3 for 4 with a run scored and three RBI. He is hitting .350 (7 for 20) with one home run, five RBI and a .381 on-base percentage this season.

"It's good to see what he's doing with the bat," manager Ryne Sandberg said, per Philly.com. "This was a big game for him. It's something he can feel comfortable with. He's a right-handed bat for us, so a needed guy in the lineup. So far, so good."

Phillies' Sandberg says rookie Franco needs to adjust to pitchers

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/19/15) Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg says rookie third baseman Maikel Franco will need to make adjustments at the plate as he moves along this season. Sandberg wants Franco to "think about average first, and power second", he told MLB Network Radio.

The young Franco has four hits in his first 16 at-bats this season, including a home run and a triple. He's also struck out three times and walked once since he was promoted.

He certainly had batting average as his priority at Triple-A this season, as he was hitting .355 in 33 games prior to his recent call-up.

Phillies' Maikel Franco blasts first major-league home run

by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/15) Phillies third baseman Maikel Franco went 2 for 4 at the plate in Philadelphia's 6-0 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Franco got things started in the sixth inning when he ripped a triple to deep center field, scoring a run, his first triple of the season. Then in the eighth, Franco blasted a Randall Delgado pitch over the left field wall for a solo home run, his first in his career.

Franco is now hitting .250 with two RBI in 12 at-bats this season.

"I see him settling in," manager Ryne Sandberg said to Philly.com. "It's great to see him swing the bat and connect. Maybe getting the home run out of the way might go a long way with him, not thinking about a home run but getting quality at-bats."

Phillies 3B Maikel Franco starts at third, bats fifth in season debut

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/15/15) Phillies rookie Maikel Franco is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks. The top prospect is batting fifth and playing third base in his season debut.

The Phillies are expecting big things from Franco as he looks to be a mainstay in the lineup for the next several years.
