Franco continues to shine in Reading

Maikel Franco continues to show everyone why he's considered the Phillies top position player prospect.

It's been a little more than a month since the 20-year-old third base prospect was promoted to double-A Reading.

Entering this week, Franco was hitting .382 and had struck out only 12 times in 136 plate appearances.

On Friday, Franco had three hits, including two home runs and five RBIs in the Fightin Phils win over New Britain.
