Another promising third base prospect in Philadelphia, Dominican Maikel Franco has accelerated his course to the big leagues thanks to a blistering 2013 season with AA .339/.363/.563 line at AA Reading followed up on a spring .299/.349/.576 at A-level Clearwater. The young slugger crushed a combined 31 homers in 541 at-bats. If he stays this hot, he'll be in Philly this year, though his prime is another couple of years away. With the Phillies looking a few years away from contention, the organization may take the conservative road with Franco in order to hold down his substantial future costs.

News and Notes

Maikel Franco may be on his way to Citizens Bank Park a little sooner than expected, due to the recent injury to Phillies' third baseman Cody Asche. While he stumbled out of the gate this season, Franco has hit .301 and racked up an .871 OPS in the month of May. He's one of the most interesting power threats in the high minors.
