Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Mariners | Nick Franklin working in OF

Seattle Mariners SS Nick Franklin played right field for a few innings Tuesday, March 25, and he said he's been working on the outfield for the last three or four days, doing drills with outfield coach Andy Van Slyke. "This is just me trying to be versatile and I'm trying to play the game," Franklin said. "Some way, some how I want to get on the field, whatever it takes." Franklin knows he's lost the shortstop job to SS Brad Miller at this point, although he hasn't officially been told that.

Fantasy Tip: Franklin's versatility could come in handy for the M's early in the season if Corey Hart (forearm) opens on the DL. However, Franklin is unlikely to spend much time out there, and if he's not playing every day, he's not worth much.
