Francoeur was traded to the Marlins on Wednesday, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.
The Marlins were looking to add a right-handed hitting outfielder to the roster. He will likely play most often in right field. The 32-year-old is slashing .249/.290/.381 on the season.
Francoeur went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer Sunday against the Phillies.
Francoeur's seventh blast of the year came in the seventh inning, providing the only runs the Braves would score in a 2-1 victory. He's now homered in two of his last three contests, and he's slashing .250/.289/.394 on the season.
Francoeur is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Phillies.
Francoeur will be out for the second straight day as Jace Peterson gets the nod in left. The 32-year-old has only managed to collect two multi-hit games since June 5, and is struggling to the tune of .182/.206/.303 with one home run and four RBI during his last 10 games.
Francoeur is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Phillies.
Francoeur will get the night off in favor of Chase d'Arnaud. The veteran outfielder is now hitting just .182/.206/.303 with one home run, four RBI and 16 strikeouts in 33 at-bats since the All-Star break.
Francoeur is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds, according to Kevin McAlpin of the Braves' Radio Network.
Francoeur started the last three games in left field, but he owns just a .552 OPS against right-handers this year, so he will be held out Wednesday with quality righty Anthony DeSclafani on the mound for the Reds. Chase d'Arnaud will get the start in left field Wednesday afternoon.
Francoeur is out of the lineup Saturday against the Rockies.
The veteran outfielder is almost exactly in line with his career .261/.304/.417 slash line this season, except the power is a little down (.396 SLG). He has been the team's typical left fielder of late, but will make way for Jace Peterson on Saturday.
Francoeur is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians.
Francouer will take a seat while Emilio Bonificio starts in left field and bats eighth against right-handed starter Corey Kluber. Expect Francouer to get back in the starting lineup when a left-handed pitcher takes the mound.
Francoeur is not in the lineup Tuesday against San Diego.
Francoeur will take a seat with right-hander Colin Rea on the mound in favor of Mallex Smith, who will play left field and bat ninth in the lineup. The 32-year-old Francoeur has played well thus far into the season, hitting .286 with 16 RBI in 126 at-bats. He will likely be back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game.
Francoeur is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Giants, according to Kevin McAlpin of The Braves Radio Network.
After starting the last four games, Francoeur will move to the bench Monday with the Braves loading up on left-handed hitters against Giants starter Jeff Samardzija. Mallex Start will man left field for the Braves on Monday afternoon.
Francoeur went 4-for-5 with an RBI in Friday's 4-2 victory over the Marlins.
The veteran has been churning out the multi-hit efforts lately, with Friday's effort marking the third time in the last four starts that he's managed at least a pair of hits. Francoeur continues to parlay his positional versatility in the outfield to a decent amount of playing time, and is slashing a respectable .284/.315/.392 over 102 at-bats this season.
Francoeur went 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Monday's loss to the Pirates.
Francoeur has now hit safely in five straight games, but has exactly one hit in each of those contests. The veteran surprised many with 13 home runs a season ago, but the power hasn't manifested itself yet in 2016, as Francoeur has just three extra-base hits.
Francoeur got the start in left field Sunday and went 2-for-5 with a double and two RBI in an extra-inning loss to the Diamondbacks.
He's still looking for his first home run of the season, and Francoeur's .255/.300/.291 slash line is tough to find an active roster spot for even in deep NL-only formats. The Braves continue to shake up their lineup looking for an offensive spark, but the veteran is unlikely to regain a regular starting role any time soon.
Francoeur is not in the lineup Friday against the Diamondbacks.
Francoeur has only garnered one hit since April 27 after batting .324 to that point. Because of this, he's been getting more days off recently, with Friday being no different. Adonis Garcia will slide into left field to replace him, with Reid Brignac taking over at third base.
Francoeur is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Mets.
The Braves will move Adonis Garcia to left field and insert Reid Brignac at third base. Francoeur is just 1-for-12 over the past three games, so a day off could help him get back on track.
Francoeur is not in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.
Francoeur had made five straight starts in left field, but was just 4-for-20 at the dish over that span, bringing his season average down to .261 after a relatively warm start. He's also 1-for-6 in his career against Sunday's starter, John Lackey, so the timing seemed right for a regular maintenance day.
Francoeur has gone 7-for-14 (.500) with three RBI and two runs over his last six games.
He is only starting regularly against left-handed pitchers, but when Francoeur does start, he's batting either fifth or sixth. The Braves might be forced into plugging him into the lineup more often if the offense doesn't improve. Atlanta is 29th in runs scored.
Francoeur went 2-for-3 with two RBI and two runs against the Dodgers Tuesday, recording his first multi-hit game for Atlanta since the day before he was traded in 2009, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
He hit three doubles at Coors Field on July 9, 2009, but was dealt to the Mets the next day. Francoeur played pretty well in New York to end that season, and then hit .285 with 20 homers with Kansas City in 2011, but for the most part, his best years have been with Atlanta. He is hitting .200 with two RBI and three runs in 15 at-bats this season.
Francoeur is not in the lineup for Friday's matchup with the Marlins.
Francoeur was replaced by Kelly Johnson in left field for this game. It was thought that Francoeur would see a majority of the time in left field after Hector Olivera was placed on administrative leave, but it appears he and Johnson are in somewhat of a platoon situation. It will need to be monitored going forward.
Francoeur is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Nationals.
It was speculated that Francoeur might get more playing time after Hector Olivera was placed on administrative leave, but he will not get the opportunity to start Wednesday. Instead, Kelly Johnson will get the starting nod in left field and will bat fifth.
Francoeur could be in line for additional playing time in left field with Hector Olivera placed on administrative leave Wednesday.
Olivera will be away from the team indefinitely as the commissioner's office investigates his alleged involvement in a domestic dispute. Kelly Johnson, a lefty batter, could see the lion's share of the starts in Olivera's absence, but Francoeur and Drew Stubbs figure to be in the mix as well. It's possible the team may opt to keep Johnson in a utility role.
