Rays' Nick Franklin bringing versatile glove to infield
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Rays infielder Nick Franklin is already contributing in just his second day back with the team after a stint on the disabled list, according to MLB.com.

"We had a great conversation today," said manager Kevin Cash. "Nick's been very in tune to what's going on here. Followed us a lot [while he was on the DL]. He's excited to join us. He's going to definitely have a valuable role for us."

Cash will rotate Franklin into the starting lineup to get him acclimated.

"We will definitely get him some starts simply because we've asked a lot of Logan [Forsythe] and Cabby [Asdrubal Cabrera] early on this year," Cash said. "So we want to keep them fresh. We'll work him in probably a couple of times a week. Factoring in on how some of the other guys are doing."

Rays' Nick Franklin collects two hits in debut Sunday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rays second baseman Nick Franklin went 2 for 5 with a double and two runs scored in his season debut on Sunday as his team rolled over the Twins, 11-3.

Franklin is getting a late start to the season after suffering an oblique injury.

"I’m excited to play," Franklin said, per the Tampa Tribune. "When I found out what the MRI showed (after the injury), I prepared myself. It’s been a month and a half — plenty of season left."

Manager Kevin Cash said that Franklin's versatility and switch-hitting ability will be important, but that infielder Logan Forsythe has earned a big role with the team.

"Nick can play second base or shortstop and give some guys an extra day of rest," Cash said. "Logan’s been outstanding, but at the same time, we have to be smart about the workload of some of these guys. Logan’s a big part of what we’re doing."
