Nick Franklin is expected to miss about two weeks with his quad strain, according to Brewers manager Craig Counsell.
Franklin had just two at-bats this season before injuring his quad. He'll likely be nothing more than a utility player absent a significant injury to a member of the Brewers infield, so don't worry about stashing him at this point in any type of league.
The Brewers placed Nick Franklin on the 10-day disabled list on Wednesday with a right quad strain. Tyler Saladino was recalled from Triple-A to take Franklin's place on the roster.
Franklin had just two at-bats in the Major Leagues this year before getting injured trying to beat out a double play. He'll look to make it back to the big club after his recovery, but he has no fantasy value anyway, so there's little reason to monitor his progress.
Brewers utility man Nick Franklin injured his quad attempting to beat out a double play on Tuesday and is "most likely" headed to the disabled list, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Franklin had just been promoted from Double-A earlier in the day.
Franklin is a utility man who is more valuable to an MLB team than he is to any fantasy owners, as he does not offer much in the form of offensive production.
Nick Franklin went 0-for-2 in his first major league game of the season Tuesday.
Franklin was promoted from Double-A to the majors on Tuesday. He replaces Eric Sogard and will presumably take his place as a backup middle infielder. Franklin does not offer any fantasy value.
Nick Frankling went 2-for-2 with a triple and a run scored in the Brewers' 9-2 win over the Rockies Saturday.
Franklin has hit well this spring, with a .375 average and a 1.054 OPS. Even with this performance it would be hard to see him making the team over Jonathan Villar, Eric Sogard, or Hernan Perez.
