    • Phillies' Maikel Franco: Cleared to return
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franco (groin) will start at third base and bat seventh Thursday against the Dodgers, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Though a groin issue was cited as the reason behind Franco's absence from the lineup the past two days, Lauber notes that the 26-year-old's failure to run out a grounder in Monday's series opener likely contributed to him being benched Tuesday. The slick conditions Wednesday may have prompted the Phillies to give Franco an additional day off, but he was still summoned from the bench as a pinch hitter in the 7-2 loss. After checking out fine, he'll reclaim his usual post at third base as the Phillies wrap up their homestand.

    • Phillies' Maikel Franco: Still sitting Wednesday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franco (groin) remains out of action Wednesday against the Dodgers. Scott Lauber of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Franco's off day Tuesday was as much about his failure to run out a groundball in Monday's contest as it was about the groin injury he suffered in that game, though the two are likely linked, as the injury was supposedly the reason for his lack of hustle. Regardless of the exact reasoning, Franco remains on the bench for Wednesday's contest, with Brad Miller again starting at third base.

    • Phillies' Maikel Franco: Blasts 13th homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Franco went 3-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-5 loss to the Mets. With Scott Kingery needed in the outfield, Franco has started 11 of the last 12 games and found his stroke again in the process, slashing .366/.422/.683 with four homers and nine RBI over that stretch. The 26-year-old is now up to 13 home runs and 41 RBI through 81 games on the year, but his .714 OPS remains disappointing.
