NICK FRANKLIN RUMORS

Rays infielder drilled in head by bat (VIDEO)

A scary moment took place on Wednesday when Rays infielder Nick Franklin got hit in the head by a swinging bat while standing in the on-deck circle. Teammate Kevin Kiermaier was beginning to warm up, so he began swinging the bat around. Unfortunately, he had no idea that Franklin was near, and he hit the infielder in the head with his backswing. Franklin, somehow, remained in the...

Tampa Bay Rays: Hindsight on Forsythe

At second base, Forsythe has a career fielding percentage of .976 Logan Forsythe is doing it all for the Tampa Bay Rays (20-16) this year, and he is doing it from just about every position on the field. His offensive numbers are the highest they have ever been in his five-year career. It became clear that Forsythe was in the team’s future from his first year in Tampa; he played...

It’s Back To Square 1 For The Mariners At Shortstop

Struggling SS Equals Understatement How in the world did the Seattle Mariners wind up with this problem?  If you had asked me after spring training what the position to worry about on the Seattle Mariners roster I’m pretty sure I would not have said shortstop. Who would have? Less we forget that the M’s had an open competition at shortstop this spring between Nick Franklin...

He’s Back!  Nick Franklin Returns to the Mariners Lineup

Hart Sent to the DL, Franklin Called Up After coming up lame on Sunday while trying to steal second base, the Seattle Mariners‘ DH, Corey Hart, pulled a hamstring.  The news was not good when he was examined by team  medical director Edward Khalfayan. Hart has a grade-2 hamstring strain.  Grade 3 is considered the worst, so I suppose it’s not as bad as it could be.  Regardless...

The Seattle Mariners recall Nick Franklin

Switch-Hitting Franklin back with M’s This morning Nick Franklin tweeted that he was flying to Texas, presumably to join the Mariners as they face off with the Rangers again. And it couldn’t come at a better time for the Mariners who have been streaky on offense. Where will Franklin fit in? Brad Miller, the man that won the shortstop job over Franklin by hitting .410 in spring...

Will Mets Have Revived Interest In Nick Franklin?

The trade buzz on Nick Franklin is picking up again as both the Yankees and Tigers continue to get meager production from their shortstop position. And while there’s nothing to suggest that the Mets have any revived interest in the Mariners prospect, that could change if Ruben Tejada doesn’t start picking it up at the plate. Franklin, who just turned 23, is currently tearing...

Nick Franklin as a Shortstop

I don’t have much insight into the mind of the average baseball fan, but thanks to the chats that we host on this website, I’ve gotten some glimpses into the mind of the average FanGraphs reader. And, it seems to me, the average FanGraphs reader at present is wondering about two questions: (1) Why is […]

Speculation continues on Seattle Mariner’s Nick Franklin

Where could Franklin land and for who? Despite the fact that Seattle Mariner’s skipper Lloyd McClendon has publicly stated that the shortstop competition between Nick Franklin and Brad Miller is a wide open chase, and that GM Jack Zduriencik has also stated that the loser of the competition is headed to AAA, the most common thought on the street is that the M’s are trying to...
