Franco Feels Better, DL Seems Unlikely

Maikel FrancoMaikel Franco had a cock-up splint on his left wrist this morning at Chase Field, but do not be alarmed.

It is a precaution.

Franco got hit on his wrist with a pitch in last night’s 13-1 loss to the D-Backs. He collapsed to the turf behind home plate and he had to be helped off the field. Fortunately for Franco, x-rays were negative and he only suffered a bruise. He said he is day-to-day, saying nobody has mentioned anything about going to the disabled list.

“It’s bothering me a little bit, but I’m fine,” Franco said.

Franco wore the split essentially to prevent him from sleeping on it wrong or having somebody grab his wrist by mistake.

“It’s better than yesterday,” Franco said. “Yesterday I was in a lot of pain. But when I woke up I moved it and it was better.”

Franco is hitting .277 (82-for-296) with 22 doubles, one triple, 13 home runs, 48 RBIs and an .830 OPS in 77 games.
