20-year old righty swinging 3B Maikel Franco came into this season as the Phillies’ #8 prospect in Baseball America and he’s showing why so far in the minors in 2013.  He has played in 70 games in A+AA-ball so far this year and he is 90 for 285 (.316 avg, .967 OPS) with 46 runs scored, 18 homers and 57 RBIs.  Franco has now played in 324 games in his first four years in the minors and he is 340 of 1,249 (.272 avg, .774 OPS) with 164 runs scored, 37 homers, 214 RBIs and 3 stolen bases.  The Phillies are likely going to put Franco on the fast track to the majors now….if he can handle it.
