Chart Party: Jeff Francoeur, my favorite worst baseball player

Jeff Francoeur’s start was historically great, and the rest of his career has been historically not. But through it all, he remains. He is my favorite baseball player.

Jeff Francoeur is Still Employed by a Major League Team

From Frenchy’s perspective, it’s just about a best-case scenario: You’ve gone from a hopeless, helpless last-place team to one in the thick of a wild card chase; you’ve been traded not only within your division, but you’re staying in the same time zone and avoiding major travel disruptions. It’s easy to see why he’s excited.

But what’s in it for the Marlins?

Marlins acquire Jeff Francoeur from Braves in 3-way deal

Delta has non-stop flights to Miami daily!

The Marlins have acquired outfielder Jeff Francoeur in a three-way deal with the Braves and Rangers, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post. The deal will send shortstop Dylan Moore (from Texas) and catcher/first baseman Matt Foley (from Marlins) to the Braves and three international bonus slots (two from Miami and one from Atlanta) to the Rangers.

Francoeur, 32, recently cleared revocable trade waivers, making him eligible to be traded to any team. Miami has been looking for outfield help in the wake of Giancarlo Stanton’s potentially season-ending injury, and was linked to Carlos Gomez before Gomez signed with the Rangers.

Francoeur has hit .249/.290/.381 with seven home runs in 99 games with the Braves this season after signing a minor-league deal to return to Atlanta in late February

Braves keeping Francoeur, will add him to roster

Though Francoeur proved productive through his first two Major League seasons, he began to decline and was traded to the Mets during the 2009 season. He has since played for the Rangers, Royals, Giants, Padres and Phillies.

But now, Francoeur is truly coming home to strengthen the Braves’ bench with his right-handed power potential. He can capably handle both corner outfield spots and he has acquainted himself with center field over the past few weeks.

And there was much rejoicing at BTF!!!
