    • Franklin cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake on Monday. No club wanted to take on Franklin's salary, so he'll serve as infield and outfield depth at the club's top minors level. He's mustered a .179/.269/.293 line with two home runs over 119 major-league plate appearances for the Halos and the Brewers.

    • Angels' Nick Franklin: Designated for assignment
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franklin was designated for assignment by the Angels on Saturday, Pedro Moura of the Los Angeles Times reports. This marks Franklin's second DFA in just over a month and third since April 1. The 26-year-old has hit .214/.285/.360 in parts of five seasons in the majors and he's limited defensively, realistically capable of helping out only at second base and the outfield corners. He will be subjected to waivers once again.

    • Franklin is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Indians. With Franklin sitting for the second straight game against a right-handed starting pitching, it seems rather apparent that he's been supplanted by Kaleb Cowart as the top option at the keystone. Cowart, who has slashed .311/.383/.482 this season at Triple-A Salt Lake, rewarded the Angels with a 2-for-4 showing at the plate Tuesday, so he should continue to play regularly against both both right- and left-handed starters until his production craters.

    • Angels' Nick Franklin: Hits bench Tuesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franklin is not in the lineup Tuesday against the Indians. Franklin has resided on the large side of a platoon at second base with Cliff Pennington, but now that Kaleb Cowart is in the big leagues again, there is a chance that Cowart could log most of the starts at the keystone while sending the current platoon mates to the bench. That's how it will be Tuesday, anyway -- Cowart is manning second base and batting ninth in his first game back up.

    • Franklin is not in the lineup Saturday against the Red Sox. This marks the second lefty in a row that Franklin will not face, which makes it seem like he and fellow switch-hitter Cliff Pennington are in a full-blown platoon at second base. Although Franklin has the fortune of being on the larger side of the timeshare, his uninspiring batting line on the season makes him a rather unattractive asset in most fantasy formats.
