3B - BAL - IL10
The Baltimore Orioles placed third baseman Maikel Franco (ankle) on the 10-day injured list with a right ankle sprain. Wednesday
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.
Orioles INF Maikel Franco was sent for X-rays on his ankle late on Wednesday night.
Franco injured himself on the final play of the game. Baltimore should update his status sometime on Thursday.
Maikel Franco went 1-for-3 with two RBIs, one run scored, one strikeout, and one home run.
Franco broke up the Astros combined no-hitter with his two-run eighth-inning home run. He's been useful in June, slashing .254/.277/.508 in 65 plate appearances.
Maikel Franco went 1-4 with one home run, one run scored, one RBI, and one strikeout.
Franco had an abysmal May slashing .157/.187/.275 in 107 plate appearances, but he's been much better in June (.280/.280/.540 in 50 PA). He's got the ability to be a useful fantasy player for stretches, but his season-long numbers will be ugly.
