The Rays have selected Franklin with the 90th overall pick in the first-year player draft.
A 6-foot-3 prep righty, Franklin has some work to do with his third pitch (a changeup) and his control, which is currently below average. He brings a solid low-90s fastball and a potentially plus curveball to the table, so if he can't hack it as a starter, he should have a future in the Rays' bullpen assuming his fastball plays up in shorter bursts.
