    • Franklin was optioned to Triple-A Durham on Monday. Franklin was optioned in order to make room on the 25-man roster for Steve Pearce, who will be activated on Tuesday. Over 47 at-bats, Franklin has slashed .298/.365/.426 in the majors. The second baseman could be called up later on again if needed.

    • Franklin went 3-for-4 with two RBI in Tuesday's 13-5 loss to the Angels. The 25-year-old has now hit safely in five of his last seven games, with a pair of three-hit efforts over that span. Franklin has provided some badly-needed offense to a Rays lineup that is often starved for scoring, tallying 11 RBI, including five in one game, over just 30 at-bats. Following Tuesday's output, he's now slashing .300/.382/.467 with a pair of doubles and a homer as well.

    • Rays' Nick Franklin: Out of lineup Thursday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franklin is out of the lineup for Thursday's contest with Detroit, Roger Mooney of TBOblogs.com reports. Franklin will get a day off in favor Corey Dickerson who gets the nod in left field. Franklin has performed well since his recall on June 21, collecting four hits over 16 at-bats including a 3-for-5, 5-RBI game Monday. With lefty Drew Smyly on the mound for the Tigers on Friday, Franklin could return to the lineup after just one game off.

    • Rays' Nick Franklin: Recalled from Durham
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franklin was recalled from Triple-A Durham on Tuesday, MLB.com's Bill Chastain reports. Franklin spent five days with the Rays earlier this month, but he's otherwise been at Triple-A Durham all season, posting a .247/.316/.388 slash line in 247 plate appearances. According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, the Rays want some added infield depth so that Taylor Motter can spend more time in the outfield. Franklin is unlikely to get more than a start or two per week.
