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.

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.
Apr 8 - 10:20 PM

Phillies purchased the contract of OF Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Frenchy had just two hits in 28 plate appearances last season with the Padres but could see a good amount of playing time in Philly versus left-handers. He turned 31 in January.
Apr 5 - 2:09 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 0-for-3 on Thursday and is hitting .214/.214/.286 in 28 at-bats.

Francoeur dealt with oblique soreness earlier in camp, but he couldn't afford to take time off and still have any chance of making the Phillies. It looks like he's going to get cut regardless.
Mar 26 - 5:23 PM

Jeff Francouer was scratched Saturday with left oblique soreness.

Francoeur was in the Phillies' lineup but he was a late scratch with what he called mild soreness. The veteran said he felt a tweak during batting practice and opted to play it safe. Francoeur is day-to-day and should be back in the lineup soon.
Mar 14 - 7:49 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 2-for-4 with a stolen base Thursday versus the Tigers.

Francoeur is 5-for-18 as he attempts to win a spot on the Phillies as a part-time outfielder. He remains a long shot, what with the team probably keeping Rule 5 pick Odubel Herrera and out-of-options utilityman Cesar Hernandez.
Mar 12 - 4:57 PM

Phillies signed OF Jeff Francoeur to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

The tour goes on. Francoeur had just two hits in 28 plate appearances this past season with the Padres, spending the large bulk of the year in Triple-A. He's doubtful to make a meaningful impact in Philly.

Padres sent OF Jeff Francoeur outright to Triple-A El Paso.

Francoeur was designated for assignment after recording two hits in 24 at-bats with the Padres. He'll remain as organizational depth for the club.
Wed, Aug 13, 2014 07:25:00 PM

Padres designated OF Jeff Francoeur for assignment.

Francoeur went 2-for-24 (.083) with seven strikeouts in his three-week stay with the Padres. The veteran outfielder seems likely to pass through waivers unclaimed and will then have the option of heading back to Triple-A El Paso or electing to become a free agent.
Mon, Aug 11, 2014 02:53:00 PM

Jeff Francoeur went 1-for-3 with an RBI and a walk as the Padres' right fielder in his debut Wednesday.

Francoeur has a history of getting off to hot starts with his new teams, though that never materialized in his last major league stint with the Giants last year. We'll see what happens this time around. He's worth owning in NL-only leagues with Cameron Maybin out.
Thu, Jul 24, 2014 01:14:00 AM

Padres purchased the contract of OF Jeff Francoeur from Triple-A El Paso.

Francoeur has batted .294 with 15 homers and a .790 OPS at El Paso this season and has also done some pitching, posting a 4.26 ERA and 4/3 K/BB ratio over 6 1/3 relief innings. It would be fun to see him get some work on the mound with San Diego, but most -- if not all -- of Frenchy's playing time figures to come as an outfielder. He can be ignored in fantasy leagues. The Padres have yet to announce a corresponding move.
