We all watched the events of yesterday unfold, with the trade for Nick Franklin, all (read: mainly just me) wondering if it might pose the end of the Espinosa era. Well, today has come, and sadly that is not the case. According to Mike DiGiovanna, Jefry Marte has been optioned back to Triple-A to make room for Franklin. Here is tonight’s lineup, with Franklin at first.

Bud Norris is also expected to have been activated, with Brooks Pounders likely going back down. Trent Rush confirms.
