8/15/2014 6:01:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco isn't in the lineup Friday against the White Sox.
Insight: Francisco has two hits in his last 35 at-bats, a .057 average. He's going to play a lot less frequently now that Adam Lind and Edwin Encarnacion are both healthy.
 
7/27/2014 4:56:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco smacked his 16th homer of the season Sunday against the Yankees.
Insight: Francisco has done his damage in just 223 at-bats this season. The 27-year-old also has 96 strikeouts so he's hitting just .242.
 
7/26/2014 11:47:00 AM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco is not in the lineup Saturday against the Yankees.
Insight: Just a routine day off. Francisco's hot May (.284, 7 HR, 20 RBI, 1.013 OPS) is a distant memory, but he's been a respectable 3B fantasy option for most of the season.
 
Cold6/20/2014 4:22:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco is not in the lineup Friday against Cincinnati.
Insight: Francisco's hot May (.284, 7 HR, 20 RBI) is a memory as he's struggled mightily in June, batting just .156 with a .586 OPS. Don't be surprised if he sees more time on the bench.
 
Cold6/15/2014 12:10:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco is not in the lineup Sunday.
Insight: Francisco has struck out 14 times in 36 at-bats this month and batted .139 in that span. The team will start Brett Lawrie at third base and Steve Tolleson at second against the Orioles.
 
Hot6/5/2014 8:31:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI Thursday at Detroit.
Insight: Francisco has hit 10 jacks in just 123 at-bats and is slugging .593. The 26-year-old has always had plenty of power, but he hasn't been able to stay in the lineup because he strikes out so often and is terrible defensively. He's found a home as Toronto's starting third baseman against righties.
 
Hot6/1/2014 10:03:00 AM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco has only faced Royals starter Jeremy Guthrie six times, but he picked up three hits, all of which left the park.
Insight: Francisco is the latest player to go from replacement level to elite power hitter after putting on a Blue Jays uniform, following in the footsteps of Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion. In 109 at-bats, he's hit .275 with nine homers, 24 RBI, 22 runs and a .961 OPS.
 
5/31/2014 7:04:00 PM
Description: Jays third baseman Juan Francisco drove in four runs Saturday in a win over Kansas City.
Insight: Two of his three hits went for extra bases. Francisco (.275, 9 HR, 24 RBI) is on pace for 26 homers this season, which would be eight more than the career-high he set last year while playing for the Braves and Brewers.
 
5/27/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays third baseman Juan Francisco has nine home runs in 98 at-bats this season.
Insight: He homered Tuesday against the Rays and has a .981 OPS this season. Like teammate Adam Lind, he only plays against righties because he's terrible against southpaws.
 
4/19/2014 11:35:00 AM
Description: Just brought up Juan Francisco will start at DH for the Blue Jays on Saturday.
Insight: He'll take the spot of injured Adam Lind. Francisco batted .221 with 13 HR and 32 RBI in 240 at-bats with Milwaukee last season, but lost his job to Mark Reynolds and Lyle Overbay.
 
3/24/2014 3:54:00 PM
Description: First baseman Juan Francisco was released by the Milwaukee, reports Mike Vassallo of the Brewers.
Insight: Francisco jumped off to a quick start last April, batting .297 with four homers and 11 RBI, but could hit his weight the rest of the way. He finished at .227 with 18 HR and 48 RBI, but was beaten out this spring by Lyle Overbay and Mark Reynolds.
 
8/15/2013 9:33:00 AM
Description: Brewers 1B/3B Juan Francisco hit a pair of longballs and drove in four runs Wednesday at Texas.
Insight: In 56 games and 171 at-bats with the Brew Crew, Francisco has crushed 12 homers and is hitting .257 with an .865 OPS. He strikes out a ton -- 31.3 percent K rate with the Brewers, 33.5 percent for the season -- but he has balanced it out with a 10.3 percent walk rate with Milwaukee, compared to a 6.1 percent walk rate with the Braves. Overall, he's hitting .251 with 17 round-trippers, 45 RBI and a .796 OPS.
 
8/14/2013 10:12:00 AM
Description: Milwaukee corner infielder Juan Francisco is hitless in seven at-bats versus Texas starter Matt Garza with five strikeouts.
Insight: Francisco has shown off some power with 15 homers this season, but he obviously doesn't see the ball well against Garza and should be avoided.
 
6/27/2013 9:16:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee corner infielder Juan Francisco has recorded four hits in his last three games. Fortunately for fantasy owners, three of them have been home runs.
Insight: His batting average has actually fallen since coming to Milwaukee (.241 in 35 games with Atlanta, .196 in 19 games for the Brewers). At least Francisco is finally showing a little power. He'll try to extend his home run streak to four straight games Friday when the Brewers open their series with Pittsburgh.
 
6/3/2013 7:00:00 PM
Description: Monday the Braves dealt struggling third baseman Juan Francisco to the Brewers.
Insight: Milwaukee gave up minor league reliever Thomas Keeling to complete the trade. The Brewers already have Aramis Ramirez at third base so Francisco (.241, 5 HR, 16 RBI) won't see many at bats.
 
5/30/2013 3:27:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Juan Francisco has been designated for assignment.
Insight: Francisco was hitting .316 on April 24, but all the strikeouts caught up to him. He went 8-for-51 (.157) with one homer and 25 strikeouts over his last 19 games. Meanwhile, Chris Johnson is batting .346 this season.
 
5/8/2013 9:06:00 PM
Description: Braves third baseman Juan Francisco belted an eighth inning grand slam Wednesday in a victory over the Reds.
Insight: It was his only hit of the game. Francisco has amassed a .493 slugging percentage this season, which is the second-highest of his career.
 
5/5/2013 12:30:00 PM
Description: Atlanta third baseman Juan Francisco (ankle) is not ready to return to the lineup, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: Francisco is dealing with a mild right ankle sprain and is day-to-day. However, he felt better Sunday and could return to the lineup early this week.
 
5/4/2013 9:58:00 AM
Description: Atlanta third baseman Juan Francisco injured his ankle Friday against the Mets and is doubtful for Saturday's game.
Insight: It looked a lot worse than the diagnosis which is a mild sprain and day-to-day status. Chris Johnson should get most of the playing time (.352, 2 HR, 9 RBI, .874 OPS) and could be a solid fantasy option.
 
5/3/2013 9:22:00 PM
Description: Atlanta third baseman Juan Francisco injured his ankle Friday against the Mets. SOURCE: Adam Rubin, ESPN
Insight: Ramiro Pena has come on to take his place. Francisco swatted an RBI single before leaving the game.
