Nick Franklin shipped to Durham after deadline trade
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Rays have assigned newly acquired infielder Nick Franklin to Triple-A Durham, according to the Tampa Tribune on Thursday. Franklin was included in the deal that sent David Price to Detroit just before the trade deadline. He had only nine homers in 279 at-bats at Triple-A Tacoma.

Mariners acquire Austin Jackson; Rays get Nick Franklin in three-team deal
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Mariners butted their way into the David Price sweepstakes and came away with outfielder Austin Jackson from the Tigers, in exchange for infielder Nick Franklin, who was then sent to the Rays.

Jackson is hitting .270/.330/.397 in 370 at-bats for the Tigers, who removed him from Thursday's game just before the trade was announced.

Franklin has struggled in his second major-league season, though he also hasn't had many chances prior to this. He has yet to homer in 52 at-bats, and has just nine in 279 at-bats at Triple-A Tacoma.

Report: Athletics targeting Nick Franklin
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Athletics have made Mariners shortstop Nick Franklin a "top target" for acquisition, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. Franklin is batting .300 with nine homers and 42 RBI in 63 games at Triple-A Tacoma.

"The question will be whether Seattle - currently in a playoff spot - would want to strengthen a division rival, and whether the A's, fresh off trading top prospects Addison Russell and Billy McKinney, would have enough in the cupboard to land him," the paper said.

Fantasy Analysis | 1400620998
Nick Franklin has chance to make good impression
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Corey Hart's hamstring injury and consequent trip to the DL gives Nick Franklin something he hasn't had all season: an opportunity.

Even though he was one of the most impactful rookies in Fantasy last season, hitting 20 doubles and 12 home runs with six stolen bases in 369 at-bats, the Robinson Cano signing has confined Franklin to Triple-A Tacoma, where he's hit .376 with seven home runs in and six stolen bases in 109 at-bats.

He did have one brief stint in the majors earlier this season when the Mariners thought they could fit him in the lineup with Logan Morrison sidelined by a hamstring injury, but doing so would have required Hart to play the outfield, which they determined he wasn't ready to do. Now that Hart himself is down, freeing up the DH spot, Franklin should get his at-bats.

And if he makes the most of them and Brad Miller continues to struggle, the Mariners could keep Franklin around to play shortstop when Hart returns in 4-6 weeks.
