Player Notes
Nick Franklin, making his Rays debut, went 2-for-4 with a double and an RBI single in Tuesday's win against the Yankees.

Advice: The Rays acquired Franklin from the Mariners at the trade deadline in the three-way trade that sent David Price to Detroit. He debuted in style, doubling and scoring in the sixth to break a 1-1, then singling in a run in the seventh as part of a four-run frame. Franklin posted a meager .363 OPS in 52 plate appearances with the Mariners this season, but the Rays are banking on bigger and better things in 2015.

Rays recalled INF Nick Franklin from Triple-A Durham.

Advice: Franklin is starting at second base and batting fifth in his Rays debut on Tuesday night against the Yankees. The 23-year-old hit .272/.366/.412 with 11 home runs and 11 stolen bases in 102 games this season between Triple-A Tacoma and Triple-A Durham. He was acquired from the Mariners in the David Price tride and is probably Tampa Bay's second baseman of the future.

Bob Sutton of the Burlington Times-News reports that the Rays will recall Nick Franklin.

Advice: Triple-A Durham finished their International League playoff run Saturday, so Franklin will now get a chance with the big club. The Rays will finish a series in Toronto on Sunday, so Franklin seems likely to join the club on Monday in Tampa. Acquired from the Mariners in the three-team deal in July, Franklin has hit .272/.366/.412 with 11 homers and 11 steals at the Triple-A level this season and should see pretty regular playing time down the stretch. He's worth owning in deeper leagues.
