"I'm excited," Franco said. "I don't know if I'll play, but I'm ready. I feel nothing [in the wrist] right now. I'm happy to be back."
Franco has been in Clearwater, Fla., rehabbing from the injury. He played in a handful of games over the past week at Carpenter Complex. The Phillies believe there is no risk to Franco's wrist if he plays this weekend.
