Phillies' Maikel Franco: Plates three runners to top Braves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco went 2-for-5 with three RBI during Saturday's win over Atlanta.

Now up to 16 RBI, Franco is driving in runs in bunches and getting the most out of his unsustainably low .182/.257/.348 slash line. He's striking out less (13.5 percent), walking more (9.5 percent) and sports a .167 BABIP, so expect some positive regression to kick in sooner rather than later. Franco's current 33.3 hard-hit percentage is also a career-high mark. This is the time to buy in all fantasy settings.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Blasts third home run
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk during Thursday's win over the Mets.

Franco entered Thursday's contest with a .148/.217/.278 slash line through the first 14 games of 2017, so fantasy owners are hoping the home run proves to be a slump-busting blast. Still, despite sporting an anchor of a batting average, six of Franco's 10 hits have gone for extra bases and he's up to 12 RBI for the campaign. The 24-year-old third baseman is probably still a year away from putting it all together, but he's also likely to have a number of torrid stretches this summer.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Hitless in last 21 at-bats
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts in a 5-4 loss to the Mets on Wednesday.

Franco is now hitless in his last 21 at-bats and is slashing just .148/.217/.278 through his first 14 games of 2017. He has shown an improved eye at the plate thus far and has cut down a tad on strikeout rate from last season, so it should be just a matter of time until he starts getting some hits to fall.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Bashes grand slam in losing cause
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco went 2-for-4 with a grand slam in Wednesday's 5-4 loss to the Mets.

The homer electrified Citizens Bank Park, as it turned a 5-0 laugher into a tight ballgame, but Franco's heroics went unaccompanied. Following a quiet start, he's now notched homers in back-to-back games, and his RBI total is up to eight already. This should be a growth season for the 24-year-old third baseman; last year's 25 homers and 88 RBI were just the tip of the iceberg.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Socks first homer of 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco went 1-for-4 with his first homer of the season against the Mets on Tuesday.

Franco's long ball was one of the few bright spots for the Phillies in a 14-4 whipping, and it accounted for the only run production they managed against a dominant Matt Harvey. While he's off to a slow start in the power department and is hitting only .207, Franco has posted a rock-solid 4:5 BB:K, so there's no reason to worry about him.
