Rays INF Nick Franklin optioned to Triple-A on Thursday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

The Rays have optioned infielder Nick Franklin to Triple-A Durham, the team announced on Thursday. Franklin has struggled since returning from the disabled list in mid-May, batting a lowly .139 through his first 28 games of the season.

"Nick's oblique injury in spring training interrupted his preparation for the season, and when he returned, our team's injuries forced him to learn a new position on the fly,'' Rays baseball operations VP Erik Neander said, per the Tampa Bay Times. "He's young and talented and a big part of our future. Our goal is to make sure he is able to continue developing and get back on track, and we believe consistent playing time is the best way to achieve that."

His demotion clears a spot on the 25-man roster for Mark Krauss, who was acquired in a trade on Thursday.
