Wander Franco will only be 22 years old when the first pitch of the MLB season is thrown. This is important to remember coming off a disappointing 2022 campaign in which he only played 83 games due to hamstring and hamate bone injuries. When he is healthy, Franco offers all the potential in the world, and if he can get 600 plate appearances in 2023, he could be a league winner with his current ADP of 92. He doesn't strike out, will always hit for average, is a smart baserunner, and has fantastic raw power. With only 153 MLB games under his belt, he has yet to show all he is capable of, and it is worth it to chase his upside.

Wander Franco falls double shy of cycle in Boston

Wander Franco went 3-for-4 with a single, triple, and solo homer against the Red Sox on Monday. Tampa Bay ultimately fell to Boston by a score of 4-3.

Fantasy Impact

Franco is slashing a whopping .358/.426/.566 with six RBI, seven walks, four strikeouts, and three stolen bases over the course of his last 15 games. He has been one of the hottest performers in fantasy baseball as of late and should have a major impact for the Rays throughout their postseason run.
