Description: The Mariners have sent middle infielder Nick Franklin back to Triple-A.
Insight: Franklin earned the promotion by swinging a red-hot stick at Triple-A, but he went 4-for-31 with 15 Ks after the callup. Mariners shortstops have hit .174 this season, easily the worst average in baseball.
 
5/8/2014 2:40:00 PM
Description: Nick Franklin has batted .369 with six homers and a 1.079 OPS in 21 games for Triple-A Tacoma this season.
Insight: Brad Miller won the starting shortstop job with a hot spring but has hit .178 with 31 strikeouts and a .534 OPS in 29 games this season. Franklin, a former first-round pick, started off well as a rookie last year but struggled in his last couple of months. We may see Franklin get a shot at the starting job if Miller doesn't turn things around soon.
 
4/16/2014 11:54:00 AM
Description: The Mariners have called up SS Nick Franklin from Triple-A Tacoma. Franklin went 17-for-43 (.395) with four homers in his first 11 games at Triple-A to earn a callup.
Insight: Brad Miller, who won the shortstop job with a hot spring, hit two homers in the second game of the year but has batted .214 with a 19/1 K/BB in 56 at-bats this season. Franklin is a former first-round pick and top prospect who started off with a .277 average and 10 HRs in his first 52 games last year but hit .167 with two homers in his final 50. He could see some outfield duty with Logan Morrison (hamstring) out, according to Jon Heyman of cbssports.com.
 
Cold8/29/2013 9:36:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin is 0-for-16 with eight K over his last five games.
Insight: Franklin is a pitiful 8-for-79 (.101) with 31 strikeouts over his last 20 games. The rookie's average has dropped from .276 to .227 in that span.
 
8/21/2013 9:22:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin left Tuesday's game with a laceration that could end up costing him up to a week of games, according to beat writer Shannon Drayer.
Insight: Franklin has been starting everyday at second base, batting .240 with 11 HR and 38 RBI in 68 games. Brendan Ryan came in to play shortstop and moved Brad Miller to second which won't help fantasy owners.
 
Cold8/13/2013 10:38:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin went 0-for-5 with two K Tuesday against the Rays and is just 3-for-41 (.073) with 15 K over his last nine games.
Insight: Franklin showed strong plate discipline early after being called up, but his strikeouts have been piling up as of late and his average is down to .242 after Tuesday's game.
 
7/28/2013 9:53:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin cracked a couple of home runs Sunday against Minnesota.
Insight: The rookie drove in four runs. His strikeouts have been piling up -- he has fanned 31 times in 83 at-bats this month -- but he's hitting .277 with 10 longballs and 32 RBI in 51 games.
 
7/26/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Seattle second baseman Nick Franklin belted a three-run homer Thursday against the Twins.
Insight: The rookie has been solid in his first 49 major league games, hitting .265 with eight homers, 27 RBI, five steals and a .792 OPS.
 
7/21/2013 6:35:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Nick Franklin snapped out of a 4-for-26 (.154) slump Sunday with two hits, a homer and four RBI in six at-bats.
Insight: The rookie is hitting .268 with seven homers and 24 RBI this season. He had a 13/11 K/BB after his first 23 games, but he has struck out 29 times with just five walks over his last 22.
 
7/12/2013 9:38:00 AM
Description: Seattle second baseman Nick Franklin left Wednesday night's game in the seventh inning after aggravating a right knee injury and was held out of Thursday's contest.
Insight: With the All-Star break only a few days away, the Mariners might play it safe and give Franklin the rest of the week off to heal up. He's hitting .275 with six homers, 19 RBI and five steals in 40 games this season. He's played at a fantasy-worthy level in his first big league experience.

Description: Seattle second baseman Nick Franklin left Wednesday night's game in the seventh inning after aggravating a knee injury. SOURCE: Greg Johns, MLB.com
Insight: He probably won't be on the field for Thursday's series finale against Boston. With the All-Star break only a few days away, the Mariners might play it safe and give Franklin the rest of the week off to heal up. He's hitting .275 with six homers and 19 RBI in 40 games this season.
 
7/7/2013 6:37:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin, who missed Saturday's game after fouling a ball off his knee, returned to the lineup Sunday and went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday against the Reds.
Insight: The rookie infielder has performed well this season, hitting .287 with six homers in 37 games.
 
7/1/2013 12:58:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin (neck) returned to the lineup Sunday and went 1-for-5 with two RBI.
Insight: Franklin sat out Saturday with a minor neck strain. The rookie is hitting .295 with four homers and an .845 OPS in 112 at-bats this season.
 
6/29/2013 6:17:00 PM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin is not in the lineup Saturday due to neck stiffness, according to Greg Johns of mlb.com.
Insight: Franklin is still available off the bench, so the injury doesn't appear to be serious. He could be back in the lineup as soon as Sunday, though with Seattle off Monday the Mariners might choose to keep him out Sunday to get him three consecutive days off.
 
6/18/2013 9:48:00 AM
Description: Mariners second baseman Nick Franklin hit a two-run homer Monday against the Angels.
Insight: Franklin is hitting .299 with three bombs, six RBI, two steals and a .904 OPS in his first 20 games in the majors. The former first-rounder should be added in most leagues.
 
5/30/2013 6:51:00 PM
Description: Seattle second baseman Nick Franklin blasted two homers Thursday against the Padres.
Insight: Franklin was called up from Triple-A earlier in the week. Obviously if Franklin continues to hit like this, he'll be able to stick around a while longer.
 
5/27/2013 2:35:00 PM
Description: The Mariners have purchased the contract of shortstop prospect Nick Franklin.
Insight: The Mariners need production from the shortstop position with Brendan Ryan batting just .211 with a .542 OPS. Seattle figures to give Franklin a chance to play after batting .324 with a .912 OPS at Triple-A.
 
5/27/2013 11:00:00 AM
Description: Mariners shortstop prospect Nick Franklin is going to get the call up, according to Ryan Divish of the Tacoma News Tribune.
Insight: The Mariners need production from the shortstop position with Brendan Ryan batting just .211 with a .542 OPS. Seattle figures to give Franklin a chance to play after batting .324 with a .912 OPS at Triple-A.
 
5/16/2013 2:41:00 PM
Description: Mariners shortstop prospect Nick Franklin is hitting .339 with four homers and a 16/24 K/BB in 30 games with Triple-A Tacoma this season. He ranks as MLB.com's No. 44 overall prospect.
Insight: Seattle Mariners' shortstops have combined to hit .121 with 34 strikeouts and a .318 OPS this season, so Franklin should be on the way up soon.
 
6/7/2012 4:38:00 PM
Description: Mariners middle infield prospect Nick Franklin is batting .351 with two doubles, two triple and two homers for Double-A Jackson. Franklin is hitting .337 with 16 doubles, four triples four homers and seven steals in 48 games this season.
Insight: Franklin is ranked No. 48 on MLB.com's list of top 100 prospects. He led the Southern League in hitting and slugging while ranking third in OBP through Sunday. The shortstop was a first-round pick in 2009, and though he's yet to prove himself at the Triple-A level, Seattle may be quick to elevate him through its system due to its 26th-ranked batting average, 28th-ranked OBP and 25th-ranked slugging percentage. Plus, the Mariners aren't exactly set at shortstop with Brendan Ryan (.164/.265/.252) getting regular at-bats there.
