Phillies' Maikel Franco: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco is back in the lineup, playing third base and batting third, against Minnesota on Tuesday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Franco is returning to a cleanup role after sliding down to sixth in the order his last two starts. The demotion in the lineup was likely due to Franco's plate struggles as he's 0-for-16 in his last five games with six strikeouts. Back in the three hole, the 23-year-old has a chance to reverse his slump and secure his spot in the order.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Batting sixth Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Franco will slide down to sixth in the order for Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks, Stephen Gross of the Morning Call reports.

Manager Pete Mackanin discussed dropping Franco down in the lineup after Friday's game, as he is struggling mightily in the past few weeks. Earlier this week, Franco missed time due to a minor knee sprain, but he seemed to be fine Thursday and Friday. Andres Blanco will bat third against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, followed by Ryan Howard and Jimmy Paredes.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Will hit lower in batting order Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Manager Pete Mackanin said he will probably drop Franco in the batting order Saturday to take some pressure off him, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Franco went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts Friday. He has struggled this month, hitting .222 with three home runs, 14 strikeouts and three walks in 45 at-bats.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Likely to rejoin lineup Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Pete Mackanin indicated after Wednesday's game that he believes Franco (knee) will start at third base Thursday against the Blue Jays, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Franco has rested each of the previous three games due to a minor knee sprain, but it appears Mackanin is convinced the issue is nearly behind him. If the 23-year-old indeed returns to the field Thursday, Andres Blanco will likely return to the bench after filling in for him over the past few days.

Phillies' Maikel Franco: Remains out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franco (knee) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Blue Jays.

Wednesday marks Franco's third consecutive absence from the lineup due to a mild knee strain. Andres Blanco will get another start at the hot corner with Franco sidelined again. Franco will have a chance to rejoin the lineup Thursday, but there's no word yet on how close his knee is to being ready for game action.
