Maikel Franco went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple and a solo home run as the Phillies took down the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Advice: Franco extended the Phillies' lead to 3-0 with a sixth-inning triple and later came around to score. He socked his first big league home run in the eighth off of Randall Delgado. Franco made his major league debut in September last year but went homerless in 58 plate appearances. The Phillies appear ready to give Franco considerable time to prove himself at third base, which makes him relevant in mixed leagues.

Tue, May 19 Rotoworld
Phillies recalled 3B Maikel Franco from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Advice: The Phils sent Cody Asche down earlier this week as he transitions from third base to left field, which has paved the way for Franco to take over as the team's everyday third baseman. The 22-year-old earned the promotion after batting .355/.384/.539 with four homers and 24 RBI over 151 plate appearances for Lehigh Valley. It remains to be seen how ready Franco is to contribute at the major league level, but his upside certainly makes him a worthy flier.
