Nick Franklin. coming up with Seattle

Postby SpecialFNK » Mon May 27, 2013 10:53 am

Mariners prospect Nick Franklin is coming.

Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune reports that the Mariners are calling up infield prospect Nick Franklin.
Franklin has hit .324/.440/.472 with four home runs and seven stolen bases in 39 games this season at the Triple-A level and is worth grabbing immediately in standard mixed fantasy leagues. The Mariners wouldn't promote the 22-year-old to sit on the bench. He should get regular playing time, whether that's at second base or shortstop.

EDIT: maybe should be noted that his numbers this season were from the PCL.
minor league numbers. ... s-Franklin

Moving to 2nd will be permanent since they few Brad Miller as the SS of the future. Hopefully he'll play enough at SS this year to keep the eligibility though.
