MINOR-LEAGUER OF THE WEEK: When field coordinator Tim Naehring watches Juan Francisco play, he thinks of Edwin Encarnacion.
"He's very similar to Eddie at that age," Naehring said. "They've got the same kind of talent and athletic ability. Eddie runs a little better, but I think Juan may develop more power."
Francisco, like Encarnacion a third baseman, is playing at Dayton. He was hitting .375 with a homer and four RBI after five games. Francisco combined to hit .289 with three home runs, 17 doubles and 32 RBI in 54 games for the Gulf Coast Reds and Billings.
