The Philadelphia Phillies need Ben Francisco to step up

With Shane Victorino on the D.L., the Phillies are likely going to turn to 29-year old righty swinging Ben Francisco in CF until he’s ready to return to action. Francisco has played in 71 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 46 for 199 (.231 avg, .712 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 6 homers, 31 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies really need Francisco to step up both offensively and defensively as Victorino is the only outfielder on the team having a good year.
