Nick Franklin believes he will become the Rays' starting shortstop, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times writes.
The Rays can go one of several ways with their middle infield. One would involve using Asdrubal Cabrera at second base and Franklin at short, and another could reverse the positions. The Rays could also give some of Franklin's playing time to Tim Beckham (at shortstop) and/or Logan Forsythe (at second base). Franklin joined the club at the trade deadline last season in the three-way David Price trade. He has a career .647 OPS with 13 home runs and 51 RBI in 412 plate appearances. Those in deep mixed leagues and AL-only leagues will want to monitor how this situation plays out over the course of the spring. Mar 3 - 8:38 AM
