Ryan Franklin's dominance increase probably came as the result of a cut fastball, which may or may not be his slider. Increase in grounders produced BABIP, strand rate and homer ratios that might be illusions; history doesn't support the late bloomer's growth. Helping him is the lack of alternatives (save maybe Jason Motte), so he'll probably keep the gig for the majority of the year, at least. He presents risk as a midrange stopper; don't go overboard.
