RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Matt Franco.

2004

Signed a one-year deal to play in Japan in 2004, where he'll be reunited with former Mets manager Bobby Valentine.

2003

After spending a full year back in the minors in 2001, Franco had an unlikely career year last season. He became part of the left-handed platoon at 1B. Franco has always had good place discipline but last year's power was a surprise. If the Braves don't bring in a big name to play first base, he could get playing time there again.
