    Phillies OF Jeff Francoeur open to returning to team next season

    Phillies outfielder Jeff Francoeur said there is a mutual interest in him returning to the Phillies next season, CSN Philadelphia reports. Francoeur has revived his career this season with a strong showing as a part-time player. He has hit .257/.287/.427 with 12 home runs while also providing a young Phillies team with veteran leadership. The Phils will likely hire a new GM in the next month, so a final decision about Francoeur and any potential return will have to wait until that process is complete.

    OF Jeff Francoeur connects for grand slam in Phillies loss

    Veteran outfielder Jeff Francoeur had an up and down day in Saturday's 7-5 loss by the Phillies, hitting a fourth-inning grand slam off the Giants' Madison Bumgarner but also committing a key throwing error. With the Phillies down by six runs, Francoeur utilized some of his veteran savvy to take one of the NL's toughest pitchers deep for his fourth homer of the season. "It was the same pitch he got me out on the first AB, so I tried to kind of get ready a little quicker and stay a little taller," Francoeur said. "I've been kind of diving out over the plate. It was a good pitch to go on and obviously it was at a good time for us." Francoeur is now hitting .252 on the season, with 18 RBIs.
