08/23/2015 - College PREP - Farmingville (Long Island), NY Franklin is a 5'8/150 lbs 2018 that showed best with the glove at the hot corner in his first outing with Baseball Factory. Defensively, he was soft with the glove seeing it in and threw with a good arm stroke to his targets. He showed feel for double play feeds and with more arm strength will be able to make more plays. Offensively, he uses his lower half to deliver the barrel and was consistently level with his path. He had balance in his stance and as he continues to work he should focus on shortening his barrel delivery and enhancing his timing. All in all - Franklin is a young ball player with time on his side to improve throughout high school.
