Player Notes
Maikel Franco went 2-for-5 with an RBI double and a two-run home run in Sunday's 11-5 win over the Cubs.

Advice: Franco's been dealing with a bit of a sore right elbow of late, but he looked no worse for the wear on Sunday. The young third baseman cranked a two-run homer off Cubs starter Jason Hammel in the first inning, then added an RBI double in the sixth to finish with three RBI on the day. The homer was his 11th of the season and he's currently slashing a rock-solid .285/.343/.496 over 246 at-bats. While we could see many of his teammates changing uniforms by the trade deadline, Franco can safely keep his dry cleaner's card, as it would be a surprise if the Phillies shipped off one of their most promising prospects.

Maikel Franco is nursing a sore right elbow.

Advice: It explains why he was double-switched out of Monday's game in the ninth inning. Franco doesn't think he'll have to miss much, if any time, but he'll be checked out on Tuesday just in case. He went 2-for-4 with an RBI single before exiting Monday.
