Phillies' Maikel Franco gearing up to make run at opening day roster

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/4/15) In mid-January, Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. indicated "in a perfect world" prospect Maikel Franco would start the season at Triple-A.

Franco told MLB.com he is unsure about where he will open the season, but he is hoping to make a strong enough impression during spring training to break camp with the team.

"[The Phillies] have not said much to me about opening day or my status. I just have to show up and do what I have to do and let them make that decision," Franco said. "I hope everything works out for me, I stay healthy and give the best that I can.

"I know it's been a long season, but you have to work hard and prepare physically and mentally with spring training coming up soon. I'm trying to do the best work I can do to make sure everything turns out fine."

Phillies GM: 'In a perfect world,' Franco would begin season in minors

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/17/15) Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told the Philadelphia Inquirer on Friday that "in a perfect world," infielder Maikel Franco would begin the season in Lehigh Valley.

Amaro indicated that Franco will "be bounced around a little bit, and we'll see if he's ready to help us at the big-league level,"

"He may not be. I think in a perfect world he starts in Triple-A and continues to progress there and then we bring him when he's ready. But we'll see. Hopefully he creates some competition for (Cody) Asche and pushes him a little bit."

With an eye on the future, Philadelphia would get an extra year before Franco eventually hit free agency, if he spends the first month and a half of the season in the minors.

"This will be an interesting spring training for him," Amaro said. "He had a great year coming into last year's spring training, and I think he pressed a little bit. I think it was a new experience for him, to be in big-league camp, trying to hit a lot of home runs and trying to do a lot of things. But it will be interesting to see how he handles this experience. He's not a lock for our team, but he'll be competing."

Maikel Franco moved to No. 2 spot in order

by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/9/14) Phillies infielder Maikel Franco started his third game in a row Tuesday against the Pirates, and has been moved up to second in the lineup in the absence of Jimmy Rollins.

Franco has now started four of the last five games and five of seven since being recalled at the start of the month. He is 2 for 15 with two RBI so far. 

At-bats the key to Maikel Franco's value

by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/3/14) As I pointed out in my latest blog post profiling several of the more notable September callups, the biggest impediment to Maikel Franco's playing time is Cody Asche, who was back in the starting lineup Wednesday against right-hander Ervin Santana. Franco made his major-league debut against a left-hander Tuesday. Asche bats left-handed. Franco bats right-handed. We've seen this act before.

We've also seen enough of Asche by now to know he's not going to make a worthwhile Fantasy contribution down the stretch, whether he's starting against righties, lefties or both. Meanwhile, the upside for the 22-year-old Franco is enormous. If you can't tell from his Triple-A numbers, keep in mind they were skewed by a dreadful slump to begin the year. In his last 199 at-bats, he hit .357 with 11 home runs.

Those numbers are basically in line with what he did between high Class A and Double-A last season. And the most encouraging part is that, for all the power he offers, he has never struck out more than 81 times in a minor-league season.

If he can wrestle full-time at-bats away from Asche, he could make an impact at what's still considered to be a weak position. Keep an eye on the situation.

Phillies announce September roster moves

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/1/14) The Phillies announced their September callups on Monday.

Before announcing the moves, Philadelphia transferred pitcher Cliff Lee to the 60-day DL to create room on the 40-man roster. The team recalled infielder Cesar Hernandez, catcher Cameron Rupp and right-handed pitchers Luis Garcia and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Additionally, the team purchased the contracts of infielder Maikel Franco and outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr.. Right-hander Mike Adams was also activated off the disabled list.
