  • Franco went 2-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and an RBI on Wednesday against the Marlins. Franco did most of his damage in the opening frame, smacking an RBI double and coming around to score. It marked his first multi-hit effort since May 9, during which time he hit just .051 with one RBI and three runs scored in 11 starts. Overall, Franco has maintained a .267/.294/.422 line across 170 plate appearances.

  • Franco went 0-for-4 Tuesday against the Marlins. Franco was in the lineup after missing two games due to a quadriceps injury. He was hitless and grounded out in all four of his plate appearances. More concerning is the fact that Franco is still dealing with discomfort and essentially remains day-to-day, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

  • Franco is still considered somewhat day-to-day with a quadriceps issue despite the fact the he's in the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Franco is in the lineup Tuesday after missing the last two games, but it sounds as though the Rays expect to keep managing the issue going forward. Expect a few more off days for the young shortstop than normal over the next week or so, but a trip to the injured list seems unlikely given that Franco was cleared to start Tuesday's contest.

  • Franco (quadriceps) will bat second and play shortstop Tuesday against the Marlins, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Franco hurt his right quadriceps Friday against the Orioles and didn't start Saturday or Sunday, though he did appear off the bench in the series finale. He's ready to be a full participant following Monday's scheduled off day and will look to dig himself out of a slump which has seen him go 2-for-35 at the plate over his last 10 games.

  • Franco (quadriceps) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Baltimore, Neil Solondz of the Rays Radio Network reports. The 21-year-old suffered the quad injury during Friday's contest and will be out of the starting nine for the second consecutive game. Franco will now have Monday's scheduled off day to aid in his recovery, and he's hopeful to be ready to go for Tuesday's series opener against the Marlins, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times. Taylor Walls will receive another start at shortstop Sunday while Isaac Paredes starts at third base.
