Maikel Franco moved to No. 2 spot in order
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Phillies infielder Maikel Franco started his third game in a row Tuesday against the Pirates, and has been moved up to second in the lineup in the absence of Jimmy Rollins.

Franco has now started four of the last five games and five of seven since being recalled at the start of the month. He is 2 for 15 with two RBI so far.

Fantasy Analysis | 1409802683
At-bats the key to Maikel Franco's value
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

As I pointed out in my latest blog post profiling several of the more notable September callups, the biggest impediment to Maikel Franco's playing time is Cody Asche, who was back in the starting lineup Wednesday against right-hander Ervin Santana. Franco made his major-league debut against a left-hander Tuesday. Asche bats left-handed. Franco bats right-handed. We've seen this act before.

We've also seen enough of Asche by now to know he's not going to make a worthwhile Fantasy contribution down the stretch, whether he's starting against righties, lefties or both. Meanwhile, the upside for the 22-year-old Franco is enormous. If you can't tell from his Triple-A numbers, keep in mind they were skewed by a dreadful slump to begin the year. In his last 199 at-bats, he hit .357 with 11 home runs.

Those numbers are basically in line with what he did between high Class A and Double-A last season. And the most encouraging part is that, for all the power he offers, he has never struck out more than 81 times in a minor-league season.

If he can wrestle full-time at-bats away from Asche, he could make an impact at what's still considered to be a weak position. Keep an eye on the situation.

Phillies announce September roster moves
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

The Phillies announced their September callups on Monday.

Before announcing the moves, Philadelphia transferred pitcher Cliff Lee to the 60-day DL to create room on the 40-man roster. The team recalled infielder Cesar Hernandez, catcher Cameron Rupp and right-handed pitchers Luis Garcia and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez from Triple-A Lehigh Valley. Additionally, the team purchased the contracts of infielder Maikel Franco and outfielder Tony Gwynn Jr.. Right-hander Mike Adams was also activated off the disabled list.

Maikel Franco possible September call-up for Phillies
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Phillies are open to promoting third baseman Maikel Franco from Triple-A Lehigh Valley in September, per MLB.com.

Franco has been tearing it up at that level after a slow start with a .338 average, 11 doubles, five home runs and 28 RBI in 33 games since June.

He will certainly not be the only minor leaguer getting a look down the stretch for a team that has fallen out of contention. "We'll probably have about five or six guys," said general manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. "I'm not really sure how many, but we're kicking some names around."
