Franco Back In Lineup After Missing Monday
The Rays will have shortstop Wander Franco back in the lineup Tuesday night after he was scratched just before first pitch Monday with left quad tightness.
Franco had said after Monday’s loss that he was ready to pinch-hit in the ninth if needed, and manager Kevin Cash said he would have used Franco as a pinch-hitter if they had brought the tyinf run to the plate.
