Player Notes
Nick Franklin (oblique) was able to handle straight-on grounders on Tuesday.

Advice: Franklin's left oblique is progressing well enough that he's able to take the field for some activity, but he's still bound for the DL. There's no concrete timetable for the infielder as of yet. Logan Forsythe is likely to start at second in Franklin's absence, with Alexi Casilla, Tim Beckham and Jake Elmore also options depending on the situation.

Rays manager Kevin Cash confirmed Tuesday that Nick Franklin (oblique) will not be ready for Opening Day.

Advice: Franklin suffered the injury during Monday's Grapefruit League game. Logan Forsythe is now likely to begin the season as the starting second baseman while Alexi Casilla, Tim Beckham, and Jake Elmore could also be in the mix for at-bats.

Nick Franklin has been diagnosed with a left oblique strain.

Advice: Oblique strains usually take at least two weeks to heal and Opening Day is exactly two weeks away, so Franklin figures to begin the year on the disabled list. He'll be the Rays starting second baseman when he returns to good health and should have some AL-only fantasy value. Asdrubal Cabrera has been named the starting shortstop.

Nick Franklin tweaked a muscle in his left side.

Advice: That's all the Rays are saying for now; more details should come out after Monday's Grapefruit League game. If it's an oblique strain, Franklin would likely have to open the regular season with a 15-day disabled list stint. He's been trying to lock down Tampa Bay's starting second base gig.
