Injury Timeline Revealed For Rays Phenom

He's been battling quad and hamstring issues for several weeks now, and missed a couple of games earlier in the season. Now Tampa Bay Rays' phenom shortstop Wander Franco has been placed on the 10-day IL, and will miss some time.

According to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times, Franco is expected to miss about two weeks with the quad strain. But manager Kevin Cash is trying to play down the severity, saying he's "not overly concerned. Each player responds a little differently to how they (do) treatment and rest. Hopefully, Wander can turn it around pretty quick and start feeling better."

The 21-year-old felt “a little tug” in his right quad while turning first base on Monday night, and the Rays said, enough is enough, let's try to get this thing right. 

Taylor Walls will mainly fill in at shortstop in Franco's absence.
