Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a roster crunch more than anything else. It's also a surprise, because Franklin had a robust .313 batting average and .458 slugging percentage. Don't be surprised if Franklin is called back up sooner rather than later, but in the meantime he plays every day in the minors. Stash Franklin away in your leagues.
