ESPN's Jerry Crasnick reports that Jeff Francoeur was claimed on revocable waivers but then pulled back by the Phillies.
Francoeur could have been a decent bench add for a contender, as he's had a solid season with a .271/.298/.474 batting line and 12 homers. It's hard to imagine why the Phillies wouldn't just let Francoeur go or possibly get a low-level prospect in return for him. Aug 24 - 5:49 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 1-for-3 with home run and two RBI, helping the Phillies top the Blue Jays 7-4 on Wednesday.

Francoeur started the scoring with a sacrifice fly in the first inning against Mark Buehrle. He then took the lefty deep for a solo home run in the third to extend the Phillies' lead to 4-0. Francoeur has homered in back-to-back games as he continues to impress in a comeback season. He's hitting .279/.304/.492 with 12 home runs and 38 RBI on the year.

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-3 with a solo home run, but the Phillies fell to the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Francoeur tied the game at 1-1 with a solo home run to center field off of R.A. Dickey in the second inning. The outfielder has been a surprise, carrying a productive .278/.305/.481 batting line along with 11 home runs and 36 RBI. Despite playing part-time for the Phillies, he has likely played himself into a major league contract for the 2016 season. The only question is with whom he'll play.
Aug 18 - 10:31 PM

Jeff Francoeur slugged a two-run home run late, but the Phillies ultimately came up short versus the Dodgers on Wednesday.

Francoeur's two-run home run off of Jim Johnson in the eighth inning reduced the Phillies' deficit to 4-3, but they couldn't muster any more offense. The outfielder, who plays only semi-regularly, has hit safely in his last six ballgames, currently riding a productive .276/.305/.481 batting line with 10 home runs and 35 RBI.
Aug 5 - 10:55 PM

Jeff Francoeur once again played the role of hero on Friday, delivering a two-run homer in the 10th inning propelling the Phillies to a 5-3 victory over the Cubs.

Francoeur victimized Rafael Soriano for the game-winning blast. He also doubled in the contest, finishing the afternoon 2-for-5 with a pair of RBI. He's now slashing .265/.298/.469 with nine homers and 33 RBI in limited action this season and could be garnering some interest on the trade front for team's interested in upgrading their outfield depth.
Jul 24 - 7:48 PM

Jeff Francoeur swatted a walk-off two-run home run in the bottom of the ninth, helping the Phillies steal a win from the Marlins on Sunday.

The Phillies entered the inning trailing 7-6, but Francoeur -- who has shown a penchant for timely hitting this year -- changed that with one swing. He had entered the game in the seventh inning as a defensive replacement and finished 2-for-2. The outfielder now has a .257/.288/.449 triple-slash line with eight home runs and 31 RBI in 198 plate appearances.
Jul 19 - 5:07 PM

Jeff Francoeur smacked a pinch-hit three-run homer in Friday's 6-3 win over the Marlins.

The Phillies scored the go-ahead run on an error by Cole Gillespie in the bottom of the eighth before Francoeur added some insurance. The 31-year-old is batting just .249/.281/.427 across 70 games this season, but he has been productive against left-handers. He could be flipped to a contender this summer.
Jul 17 - 9:40 PM

Fox Sports' Jon Morosi reports the Pirates have interest in trading for Jeff Francoeur.

Francoeur has hit pretty well against right-handers this year, batting .274 with a .491 slugging percentage. He'd give Pittsburgh some outfield depth and probably wouldn't cost that much. The 31-year-old is in the last year of his contract so he'd only be a rental for the Pirates.
Jul 11 - 9:50 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-5 with a two-run double and a solo home run as the Phillies beat the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Francoeur added insurance as his two-run double made it 3-0 in the third inning, and he'd later come around to score. He homered off of Juan Nicasio in the seventh to make it a 7-2 game. The veteran has lived up to expectations, providing some power every now and then but not much else. Francoeur owns a .259/.292/.431 triple-slash line with six home runs and 26 RBI.
Jul 8 - 12:58 AM

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-4 with an RBI single and a solo home run as the Phillies dropped Sunday's contest to the Nationals.

Francoeur got the Phillies on the board in the second inning with a solo home run off of Stephen Strasburg. He reduced the Phillies' deficit to 3-2 in the sixth inning with an RBI single. The 31-year-old did make a costly defensive misplay in the fifth inning, which led to a Nationals run. Francoeur is batting .259/.292/.424 with five home runs and 23 RBI this year.
Jun 28 - 4:30 PM

Jeff Francoeur slugged a grand slam Saturday in the Phillies' loss to the Giants.

It was an improbable four-run blast in the bottom of the fourth inning off ace Madison Bumgarner. But the Giants had already jumped out to a six-run lead at that point and then tacked on an insurance run in the top of the seventh before winning 7-5. Francoeur is batting .252/.282/.415 with four homers and 18 RBI in 45 games this season.
Jun 6 - 6:30 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 4-for-5 with an RBI double and an RBI triple to help the Phillies earn a win over the Braves on Monday.

Francoeur started the scoring in the first inning with an RBI double, then came around to score later on Carlos Ruiz's two-run single. He added an RBI triple in the ninth inning to provide some insurance. Prior to the outburst, Francoeur had been held hitless in 18 plate appearances in his previous six games. He's batting a paltry .214/.267/.386 with two home runs and six RBI, but he should continue to see regular playing time in right field until Domonic Brown is deemed ready to return to the majors.
May 4 - 10:38 PM

Jeff Francoeur finished 0-for-3 with a strikeout in the Phillies' loss to the Cardinals on Thursday.

Francoeur went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts on Wednesday night and finished the Phillies' four-game set in St. Louis at 0-for-13. The 31-year-old outfielder slugged two home runs in his first seven games this season, but he's now batting just .172/.232/.313.
Apr 30 - 4:41 PM

Jeff Francoeur is batting cleanup for the Phillies on Wednesday night versus the Mets.

Tough times in Philly. Francoeur has slugged two home runs in seven games this season, but the 31-year-old outfielder is a .222/.269/.352 hitter over his last 907 plate appearances at the major league level.
Apr 15 - 4:32 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-4 and hit a three-run homer off Rick Porcello in Wednesday's defeat of the Red Sox.

Francoeur can be labeled a feel-good story, but it should be remembered that he hit .227/.227/.295 with 11 strikeouts and no homers in 44 at-bats to make the Phillies this spring. He got a hold of one tonight, and it was an impressive shot in poor conditions for hitting, but it was also a very bad offspeed pitch that deserved to be hammered. What we're trying to say is that one probably shouldn't rush to pick up Francoeur in fantasy leagues.
