Ben Francisco plugs another hole within the Phillies' 25-man roster by providing a legitimate right-handed bat off the bench. He'll also see occasional spot starts in all three outfield positions, although he's played mostly in left over the past few seasons. John Mayberry, Jr. will head back down to AAA Lehigh Valley to continue to work on his swing.
