The offseason shouldn't be a problem either since they should lose at least a few spots if not several.

No reason to rush him, imo. Asche is here and holding down 3B quite well for now. And it's not like Franco has no rough edges; he could probably benefit from some time in AAA.
Franco got time at 1B at the end of the season, but I wouldn't hold him up because of a lesser prospect is blocking him. Even if he doesn't play any games, working out with the team would be better then sitting at home watching tv imo.
