JEFF FRANCOEUR RUMORS

Padres designate Jeff Francoeur for assignment

The San Diego Padres have designated outfielder Jeff Francoeur for assignment. Francoeur’s three week stay with the Padres ends with a 2-for-24 line with seven strikeouts. With no one expected to make a claim on him Francoeur will either have the option of reporting to Triple-A El Paso or electing for free agency. The 30-year-old Francoeur has not contributed much since the 2011...

Meet the man behind the epic pranks on Jeff Francoeur

Jeff Francoeur's foray back into the minor leagues has produced two particularly hilarious moments this season. The first, when his El Paso Chihuahuas teammates convinced him that teammate Jorge Reyes was deaf (he's not) and the second, when he dared to use the coaches bathroom and his teammates retaliated by forcing him to find another way out of the room (he chose the ceiling...

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...

Jeff Francoeur doing it all for Triple-A team

Jeff Francoeur is proving to be a regular “Jack of All Trades” for the San Diego Padres Triple-A affiliate El Paso Chihuahuas. Not only is the outfielder the perfect prank victim, but with a Gold Glove and World Series experience, he’s also got some pretty solid Major League credentials.  Oh, yeah…he’s also proving to be a rally killer on the mound. Sunday night, “Frenchy”...

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...

Reactions To The Francoeur Signing

What do I think of the Giants signing Jeff Francoeur? I hope I’m wrong, but I don’t see it having a major impact.  I was wrong, after all, about Pat Burrell. Francoeur has had a lot of bad years and only one good one over the last half-decade or so.  He’s decent against left-handed pitching only.  He’s got mediocre defense.  I don’t see him catching the Giants magic...

THAT'S BALLSY

Jeff Francoeur hits third base coach in the crotch

Jeff Francoeur of the Kansas City Royals has a solid triple on Tuesday night, but it was the celebration after (if you can call it that) which made some headlines. Francoeur roped a triple in the sixth inning and as he slid safely into third he had quite the smile on his face. Initially one would think it was because of the three-bagger, but it was because he took the time to tap...

Francoeur steals fan's popcorn after chasing foul ball

Jeff Francoeur is probably best known for his free-swinging ways at the plate, but he seems equally agressive when it comes to snacks. Francoeur wandered over to the right field stands in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game in the hopes of making a play on a foul ball. He wasn't able to make the catch, but he did grab an opportunity to steal a quick bite to eat. "Frenchy...
