RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Wayne Franklin.

2006

Journeyman Franklin got a shot in the Yankees bullpen due to all their pitching injuries in 2005, but he didn't do much with the opportunity. It would be a surprise to see him contribute much in 2006.

2005

Though he started the season well out of the bullpen, Franklin struggled for much of 2004 with an ERA of more than 5.00. He had one good start, but failed to make any contribution from the bullpen. The Giants have no plans to start him this season, so unless his situation changes, he's a middle reliever with little value.

2004

Franklin had a very up-and-down season but in the end was a little worse than mediocre. The Brewers had very few options for starting pitchers in 2003 and that allowed Franklin to stay in the rotation the entire season. He will get another opportunity to be part of the rotation in 2004 but unless he pitches better he will probably not last the season.

2003

Franklin was acquired by trade late in the 2002 season and was given four starts in September to see what he could do. He made the most of his time by posting a 2.63 ERA in 24 innings. The Brewers will give him a chance to make the rotation this spring. He projects as a long-reliever and spot-starter.
