News: Franklin has been recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports. Impact: With Brad Miller and Robinson Cano expected to man the middle infield for the Mariners, Franklin could see outfield duty as a means of getting his bat in the lineup. The struggling Michael Saunders would seem to be the most likely candidate to lose out on at-bats if Franklin does in fact transition to an outfield role. If not, Franklin will just be on hand as an overqualified infield reserve.(RotoWire, )

News: Franklin has opened the season on a tear at Triple-A Tacoma with a 9-for-19 mark (.474) including three homers and seven RBI through five games. Impact: The Mariners don't have a place for him to play, so Franklin is currently stuck waiting for a trade or an injury to pave his path back to the big leagues. Of his five games played at Tacoma, Franklin has played three at second base and two at shortstop thus far.(RotoWire, )
