Former Phillies slugger Maikel Franco is close to one-year deal with Royals

The Royals have yet to announce a signing but are closing in on an agreement. According to MLB.com’s Jesse Sanchez, Franco would earn $2.95 million plus up to another $1.05 million in performance bonuses.

The 6-foot-1, 215-pound Franco, a native of the Dominican Republic, has spent his entire career with the Phillies. Last season, he batted .234 with a .297 OBP to go with 17 home runs, 56 RBIs and a .409 slugging percentage.

For his major-league career, Franco has a slash line of .249/.302/.431 with 102 home runs and 343 RBIs in 656 games. He posted 20-homer seasons in three consecutive seasons from 2016-18. In 2018, he was the only player in the majors with 20 home runs or more and 62 or fewer strikeouts.
