  • Wander Franco Strikes Out Twice In Rehab Game

    Tampa Bay Rays shortstop Wander Franco (quadriceps) started at shortstop for Triple-A Durham on Wednesday and went 0-for-2 with two strikeouts. Franco is scheduled to play a few more minor league rehab games this week for Durham, so he didn't play the full game on Wednesday. If the 21-year-old can avoid setbacks this week, there's a chance that he could return from the injured list this weekend to face the Pittsburgh Pirates. Before is injury, Franco was hitting .270/.305/.421 with four home runs, 19 RBI, 27 runs scored and four stolen bases in 45 games as the team's everyday shortstop. He's a must-start fantasy asset once he returns to the majors. Taylor Walls has been filling in at the 6 regularly with Franco sidelined.
