Francoeur went 2-for-5 with a homer and three RBI in the Phillies' win over the Dodgers on Tuesday night.

Since mid-June, all but one of his six starts have come against left-handed starting pitcher. Given that the Phillies are rebuilding at the present time, the desire to get Francoeur involved on a more regular basis is limited, which will likely continue to hold him to the small side of a platoon with Domonic Brown.

Interim manager Pete Mackanin said Francoeur's playing time will continue to be limited as the Phillies look to get their younger guys more playing time, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Francoeur got just his third start in the last 17 games on Saturday. He went 1-for-3 with a walk and a run scored.

Francoeur went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Francoeur has seen his playing time dip recently, with Sunday's start marking just his second in the span of seven games. He was right back on the bench for Game 2 in favor of Domonic Brown, who should be viewed as the primary option in right field for Philadelphia.

Francoeur is not in the lineup Sunday against the Giants, Ryan Miller of NJ.com reports.

Francoeur has made four straight starts in right field, but will sit Sunday afternoon, as manager Ryne Sandberg will use an outfield composed of Cody Asche, Odubel Herrera and Ben Revere. The 31-year-old took Madison Bumgarner deep for a grand slam in Saturday's contest, so he'll get a well-deserved day off.

Francoeur went 2-for-4 Saturday with his fourth home run of the season, a grand slam off Madison Bumgarner.

His .252/.282/.415 slash line in 123 at-bats may not seem like much, but it's actually Francoeur's best major league performance since 2011. With Domonic Brown apparently not close to being called back up, the veteran outfielder should continue to see at least semi-regular playing time.

Francoeur went 0-for-4 in Friday's loss to the Giants.

Francoeur started three straight games in right field and went 3-for-13. He has been splitting time with Ben Revere since the Phillies released Grady Sizemore. That arrangement should continue in the short term, but the Phillies are likely to bring back Domonic Brown at some point to give him regular playing time in right which could cut into Francoeur's at-bats over the rest of the season.
