The right-hand-hitting Francouer, who was in Wednesday's starting lineup facing right-hander Mike Leake, is 4 of 18 with one RBI and one stolen base since joining the Giants.

"It’s not a platoon. Frenchy is going to play (Sunday) against (Hiroki) Kuroda," Yost told the Kansas City Star. "Whoever starts is the starter. It changes day to day for no reason other than that this guy is hot or because of the matchup."


Jeff Francoeur putting hits together


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(5/5/2013) Royals outfielder Jeff Francoeur hit safely for the sixth time in the last seven games Sunday against the White Sox. He went 1 for 5 with a run scored in the 6-5 win.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Jeff Francoeur's numbers don't add up


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2013) You take a look at Royals outfielder Jeff Francoeur's slash line (.238/.273/.381/.654) through 11 games and it looks eerily simiar to his 2012 numbers (.235/.287/.378/.665). That would lead you to believe we should expect another down year from the 29-year-old slugger, but I'm not totally convinced.

I feel Francoeur is just off to a slow start. Some numbers that intrigue me, per FanGraphs.com, is Francoeur is making just 70.9 percent contact with pitches inside the strike zone and 66.3 percent contact rate, which has led to a career-high 19.6 percent swinging strike rate. Francoeur's career strike zone contact rate is 85 percent, contact rate is 78.9 percent and swinging strike rate is 12.4 percent.

You can definitely see he is way off his norms and to me that signals Francoeur is due for a positive market correction, which makes for a good buy-low candidate. Now, he's still going to hurt Fantasy owners because of his strikeout rate, but if you are scouring the waiver wire for outfield help, then Francoeur could be a promising candidate.
