Organization Prospect Rankings
Franco entered 2012 as a career .205 hitter in three years of Rookie ball, but took a big step forward and earned team MVP honors at Danville. He displayed a variety of above-average tools and overall ability that make him one of the more intriguing position players in the system. Franco has solid pop from both sides of the plate. He has good plate discipline for a young player and makes consistent contact with solid hand-eye coordination. His frame is strong and sturdy, and he projects to generate above-average power as his body matures and he gains more experience. He runs well but won't be a big basestealing threat. Franco has good hands and well above-average arm strength at third base. He finally should be ready to make the jump to full-season ball in 2013.
