Maikel Franco inks minor league deal with the Braves

Third baseman Maikel Franco signed a minor league deal with the Braves, David O'Brien of The Athletic reports.

Fantasy Impact

Franco was originally rostered by the Orioles this season, where he slashed just .210/.253/.355 with 11 home runs before getting released at the deadline. Franco, with his mulit-positional versatility in both corner infield spots, will likely serve as a backup for both Austin Riley and Freddie Freeman for the remainder of the season. As such, absent an injury to a player ahead of him, this transaction has very little fantasy impact.

The Baltimore Orioles placed third baseman Maikel Franco (ankle) on the 10-day injured list with a right ankle sprain. Wednesday

Fantasy Impact

Franco missed the last four games after suffering an ankle injury last Wednesday. He will be eligible to come off the injured list after the All-Star break. The 26-year-old is slashing .221/.265/.376 across 309 plate appearances in 2021. Fantasy managers should continue to stash Franco in deep-league formats if they can. Kelvin Gutierrez was recalled from Triple-A Norfolk in a corresponding move.
