Wander Franco comes from a baseball family, but it has sometimes been confusing identifying him, relative to his two brothers, also named Wander Franco.
However, Tampa Bay Rays fans surely know which Wander Franco will be the next star in their future. Wander Samuel Franco is currently the No. 1 rated prospect in baseball after playing only two seasons in the Rays organization. The 19-year-old shortstop may be only a couple of seasons away from getting his chance in the big leagues.
Wander’s brother, Wander Javier Franco, is a seven-year veteran of the minors, last playing for the San Francisco Giants organization in 2018 and playing in the independent leagues last season.
Their other brother, Wander Alexander Franco, is currently in the Giants minor-league system, after beginning his career with the Houston Astros organization.
The family ties for the three brothers doesn’t end there. They are the nephews of former major league brothers Willy and Erick Aybar.
