|Maikel Franco close to Double-A promotion|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(6/16/13) Phillies third base prospect Maikel Franco had quite the first half for Class A Clearwater. He hit .296 with a .568 slugging percentage, .912 OPS, 15 home runs, 23 doubles and 49 RBI in the pitcher-friendly Florida State League.
His strong first half likely means he will be on the move to Double-A Reading shortly, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. Franco entered the season as the Phillies' 11th-best prospect, according to MLB.com.
"We'll have some things like that going on," director of player development Joe Jordan said when asked about Franco's potential promotion to Reading.
