MLB Network breaks down Maikel Franco's swing

3

Maikel Franco is pretty unbelievable. This is something we all know. He's off to a great start this season and certainly looks to be the real deal. Well, Carlos Pena, MLB Network Analyst, agrees, breaking down Franco's swing, saying "He’s well beyond his years, as far as wisdom is concerned, with the bat. I mean, look at how he understands timing, separates early, gets ready to fire earlier than most, and all of a sudden he stays behind the ball, goes the other way, pulls them. He’s got a slightly open stance. He reminds me of a young Mariano Duncan. It’s pretty good, except that I believe that Maikel Franco’s actually going to be better than Duncan." Amen, Carlos.
