RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
