Player Notes
Maikel Franco felt lingering discomfort in his left wrist Wednesday while trying to take batting practice.

Advice: Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com says the Phillies are going to back off Franco, which could very well mean that the 23-year-old third baseman is done for the season. He got hit on the left wrist by a pitch on August 11 against the Diamondbacks and hasn't played since. Franco is sitting on an .830 OPS, 13 home runs, and 48 RBI.

Maikel Franco (wrist) will take batting practice on Wednesday.

Advice: The feeling at the time when Franco was placed on the disabled list with a fractured left wrist was that there was a good chance his season would be over. However, it's now looking very likely that he'll be back at some point in September. "Once he does that -- getting a few at-bats and taking some batting practice -- I might run him right in there if he's 100 percent," Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said.

Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin said there is a "good chance" Maikel Franco (wrist) returns before the end of the season.

Advice: Just Tuesday Mackanin expressed optimism that Franco will be back sometime this year, but now he's moved on to handicapping the likelihood. Franco has been out since August 11 with a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist. Even if he does return, the probability is in question enough that it probably won't be for any meaningful length of time. He should be fine for the start of the 2016 season, though.

Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin is optimistic that Maikel Franco (wrist) will be able to play again this season.

Advice: Franco has been sidelined since August 11 with a non-displaced fracture in his left wrist. He's currently wearing a brace on the wrist, but Mackanin said last week that the break is not as bad as originally thought. "I’m optimistic that he might be able to come back," said Mackanin. "I’m not sure the medical people are going to allow us to use him unless he’s 100 percent. If he’s 100 percent, I’d like his bat back in the lineup and I’d like his glove back in the lineup." The Phillies have nothing to play for right now, so there's no reason to rush him back into action. While the door hasn't been officially closed on his season, fantasy owners shouldn't count on him.
