RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Franco moved past Jesse Biddle to become the Phillies' top prospect after his breakout 2013 season. He hit .320 with 36 doubles, 31 home runs and 103 RBI in 134 games with High-A Clearwater and Double-A Reading, and led all minor leaguers with 308 total bases. The Phillies believe he can stick at third base, but they also had him take some reps at first base late last season as they look to increase his versatility a bit. Franco will get an invitation to spring training, and has an outside chance at winning the starting job. The Phillies are more likely to open the year with Cody Asche at third, but Franco could get a shot later in the season if Asche fails to produce.

2013

After a rough start to last season, Franco really turned things on after the All-Star break and finished the year hitting .280/.336/.439 with 32 doubles and 14 home runs for Low-A Lakewood. The power numbers are impressive, especially for someone that played the majority of last season as a 19-year-old in Low-A ball. Franco has one of the highest ceilings in the Phillies' farm system, but is still at least two to three years away from the majors.

2012

Franco signed with the Phillies in 2010 as an amateur free agent out of the Dominican Republic. He struggled in rookie ball during the 2010 season but had a bit of a break out last season at Short Season Williamsport where he hit .287/.367/.411 with two home runs in 202 at-bats. Franco also saw some limited action for Low-A Lakewood, but struggled there. Scouts say Franco has a high ceiling and his solid eye at the plate in Williamsport (25 walks/30 strikeouts) is a positive sign, but he'll need to show more power in the future to maintain his prospect status.
