Rays' Nick Franklin: Starting as DH against Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Franklin (hamstring) will serve as the designated hitter and bat sixth Saturday against the Red Sox, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

As of Tuesday, Franklin was said to be eyeing a return during the final weekend of the regular season, but evidently he's progressed quicker than expected. Franklin has hit .295/.363/.508 against right-handed pitching this season and was playing regularly between shortstop, second base, left field and first base before going down with the hamstring injury.

Rays' Nick Franklin: Hopes to return for final weekend
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Franklin (hamstring) hopes to return for the final weekend of the season, Roger Mooney of the Tamp Bay Times reports.

He has a moderate hamstring strain that could keep him out for the remainder of the season, but he's hoping to get back out for the final series in Texas to end on a healthy note. Franklin hit .280/.343/.465 with six home runs and six steals in 174 plate appearances this year, marking easily his most productive season to date at the plate. However, he grades out as a below-average defender and started games at left field (17), first base (nine), second base (eight), right field (six), shortstop (four) and DH (two), so it's possible he may enter 2017 as nothing more than a part-time utility player.

Rays' Nick Franklin: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (hamstring) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, Steve Carney of 620 WDAE reports.

He underwent an MRI on Monday, the results of which have not yet been made public. This will be the fourth game in a row that Franklin will miss with the hamstring strain. Mikie Mahtook will start in right field and bat sixth Tuesday.

Rays' Nick Franklin: Scheduled for MRI on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Franklin (hamstring) is scheduled for an MRI on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The utility man has been sidelined since straining his hamstring Thursday. The exam will likely give Franklin a realistic picture of whether he'll be able to return at some point before the conclusion of the regular season in less than two weeks. The 25-year-old has slashed a solid .280/.343/.465 for the Rays in 2016, while playing five different positions and also logging time at DH.

Rays' Nick Franklin: Hopes to play again this season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (hamstring) said Friday that he hopes to return this season, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The fact that Franklin said he "hopes" to return this year implies there's a chance he does not. Franklin suffered a strained hamstring during Thursday's game, which is the type of injury that might threaten to push him to the DL without expanded rosters. He said the hamstring was more sore than he expected Friday morning.
