Rays reactivate Franco before series against the Yankees

NEW YORK (AP) — Shortstop Wander Franco came off the 10-day disabled list after missing two months with the Tampa Bay Rays because of a hamate problem in his right hand that required surgery.

The 21-year-old Dominican was second in the batting order in Friday night’s game, first of the series against the American League East-leading New York Yankees.

On the first pitch he faced, Franco hit a double and sent the ball into a hole in right-center field.
