Jeff Francoeur, Phillies mutually interested in return for 2016

When the Phillies signed Jeff Francoeur as a one-year, $950,000 non-roster contract invite in the offseason, he joined a team on the verge of a rebuild with hopes of revitalizing his career. Fast forward to September and he is on his way to doing that, proving to be a huge...

Jeff Francoeur makes one of the worst throws in history

In one play Sunday afternoon, Jeff Francoeur just about summed up the Philadelphia Phillies’ entire season. It’s been a rough season for the Phillies who are among baseball’s worst teams, and it must be even worse for a veteran like Francoeur, a once can’t-miss prospect who’s bounced around baseball looking for work. On Sunday, Francoeur’s season might have hit rock...

Phillies bullpen phone is left off hook during brutal game

It was a wild scene at Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Tuesday. After all, how often do you see a team mash 8 home runs AND witness an outfielder throw 43 pitches in the same game? But that’s exactly what went down during the Baltimore Orioles’ 19-3 throttling of the Philadelphia Phillies.

Jeff Francoeur threw *two* innings for the Phillies on Sunday

Just how bad are things going for the Philadelphia Phillies right now? During Tuesday’s 19-3 thrashing at the hands of the Baltimore Orioles, they brought Jeff Francoeur to the mound.

Jeff Francoeur is still a blast to watch

Jeff Francoeur is a bad baseball player on a bad baseball team. Now 31, the days of “The Natural” are long over. Francoeur has turned into a journeyman since the Braves dumped him onto the Mets in 2009 for Ryan Church, playing for the Mets, Rangers, Royals, Giants, Padres, and Phillies in the majors over the past six seasons. He hasn’t played in as many as 100 games with...

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur again victimized by brilliant prank

Back in April, the El Paso Chihuahuas pranked teammate Jeff Francoeur, convincing him that a teammate was deaf. In honor of Francoeur’s promotion to the major league today, Cody Decker of the Chihuahuas released another prank video, in which the team locks Francoeur in the bathroom. I won’t spoil the conclusion, but it’s pretty fantastic. Poor Jeff. Hopefully the Padres let...

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur victim of great prank by teammates

Clubhouse pranks are as much of a part of baseball as peanuts and Cracker Jack and as far as this one goes…it’s a winner. Late in Spring Training, veteran Jeff Francoeur was released by the Cleveland Indians and, just days later, signed by the San Diego Padres and assigned to the team’s Triple-A affiliate in El Paso.  Up until recently, the outfielder’s teammates had him...
