Phillies don't appear to be in rush to promote Maikel Franco

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/24/15) Phillies third base prospect Maikel Franco is certainly on the radar for a promotion to the majors, as he has begun the season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley with a .355/.403/.565/.968 slash line through 14 games.

However, it doesn't appear the Phillies are in a rush to promote the 22-year-old infielder, per MLB.com.

"We'll see," Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg said Friday, when asked if he could see Franco sooner rather than later. "There hasn't been much talk about him."

Phillies' Maikel Franco working on plate patience

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/15) Phillies third-base prospect Maikel Franco is working to contain his energy at the plate and become a more patient hitter, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

"You have to be aggressive. But you have to take your pitches and get that one, good pitch to hit," Franco said. "And that's what I do. When I go out there, I try to relax and everything will happen."

Director of player development Joe Jordan said after watching the prospect this week that Franco has to become more patient at the plate.

"He's still a 22-year-old hitter," Jordan said. "At times, he gets excited still. But that's all stuff that's going to change with experience and maturity."

While Franco struggled to put up stats early last season, his aggressiveness has paid off this April. He has hit .385/.442/.667 with one home run, seven RBI and four walks in 39 at-bats with Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Cody Asche wrapping up Phillies' third base job

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) Barring any unforseen circumstances, Cody Asche will win the Phillies' third base job. 

The Phillies sent Maikel Franco to their minor league camp on Friday, eliminating Asche's competition for the starting job.

Asche made a statement of his own later in the day, hitting a home run for the second straight game.

"I think he's one of our more solid hitters as we speak," manager Ryne Sandberg said, per MLB.com's Adam Berry.

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro: Maikel Franco's time is going to come

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) The Phillies optioned prospect Maikel Franco to the minors Friday after he struggled during his stint in major-league camp. Franco hit just .200 (6 for 30) with one RBI, four strikeouts and no extra-base hits.

Franco entered camp with the opportunity to push third baseman Cody Asche for a job on the major-league roster, per MLB.com.

"Maikel's time's going to come," general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said. "I know he's upset, because I know that he probably wanted to write a different script for himself, but the fact of the matter is just like any other young player who we feel is going to impact the major leagues, his time will come when it's time for him to come.

"I think there was probably some element of him trying to do a little too much, like he did last spring. But he doesn't need to impress us. He just needs to go play."

Franco will play at first and third base for Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

"When he gets a chance to be back in the big leagues, play a few games and have some success, it'll carry," Amaro said. "It's just a matter of him getting the opportunity, and he'll get the opportunity, because he's going to create it for himself."

Franco's hopes of making Phillies' roster end, sent to minors camp

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/20/15) The Phillies announced Friday they reassigned third baseman Maikel Franco, pitcher Nefi Ogando and pitcher Joely Rodriguez to minor-league camp.
