2-4 with his 4th HR yesterday now sitting at .265/.323/.458 --  meanwhile Franco is slashing .159/.196/.243 in his last 30 games with 3 HR and 1 multi-hit game.
It's still early in AAA for him. Under 100 ABs. They may want to make sure he is okay there before they bring him up and ruin the good feelings by overwhelming him with MLB pitching.

Behind CJ Abrams and Luis Garcia, this is a very sad system in the IF. Jake Alu has played some 2B. Not certain he needs to play every day as a college draftee who is 25. He could come up next year as a backup infielder who gets a run if Kieboom isn't ready.
