FRI, JANUARY 12, 2018 - Franco agreed to a one-year, $2.95 million deal with the Phillies on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. This is Franco's first offseason as an arbitration-eligible player. He is coming off a pretty brutal season (.230/.281/.409) where he finished with a negative-0.5 fWAR. Franco should still serve as the Phillies' everyday third baseman in the early going, but he could start to lose out on at-bats if he doesn't show significant improvement in April and May.
