Maikel Franco hits first home run of the season on Sunday

Maikel Franco went 2-4 with a three-run home run, and a single as the Orioles fell to the Red Sox, 14-9. He had one run scored, four RBIs, and one walk.

Fantasy Impact

Franco is off to a slow start this season after signing with the Orioles in March. However, he's done a good job of limiting strikeouts and drawing walks. He hit two hard-hit balls on Sunday.

Maikel Franco knocks in two runs on Saturday

Maikel Franco got the scoring started with a two-run single in the top of the fourth inning on Saturday. It was a ground ball, up the middle, just out of the reach of a diving Marwin Gonzalez. He also struck out in the contest.

Fantasy Impact

Franco's single had an exit velocity of 96.9 MPH and was his only hard-hit ball of the contest. He was a late addition to the Orioles roster in Spring Training but won the starting job at third base. Fantasy managers can leave him on the Waiver Wire until he moves up in the line-up.

Maikel Franco has a 'good chance' at making Opening Day roster

Orioles manager Brandon Hyde says Maikel Franco has a "good chance" at making the team's Opening Day roster.

Fantasy Impact

Franco could wind up as Baltimore's starting third baseman after signing with the team in mid-March. He can mostly be ignored for fantasy purposes outside the deepest of leagues.

Maikel Franco and Orioles reportedly finalizing a deal

The Orioles and Maikel Franco have reportedly finalized a deal.

Maikel Franco close to a deal with the Orioles

Maikel Franco and the Baltimore Orioles are moving close to a deal.

Fantasy Impact

The Braves and Mets were also rumored to be in the mix for Franco, but it sounds like the third baseman could be taking his talents to Baltimore. If he does sign with the Orioles, Franco would likely be the favorite to earn the starting job at 3B. Rio Ruiz and Yolmer Sanchez would be Franco's main competition for playing time.
