Frank Francisco Suffers Another Setback In Hs Rehab

An article by posted on July 29, 2012

Frank Francisco has suffered another setback in his rehab from his strained oblique, Terry Collins told reporters after last night’s 6-3 loss to the Diamondbacks,

Lynn Worthy of the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin reported that the Mets closer had “soreness on his left side.”

Francisco was supposed to pitch in his third rehab game for the B-Mets before getting an appearance with Triple-A Buffalo followed by a potential return to the Mets on Monday or Tuesday. Those plans appear to be in jeopardy now, although Francisco said he hopes to pitch for the B-Mets on Sunday.

This is the second for Francisco since he was placed on the disabled list in late June. He has allowed two runs on four hits in 1 2/3 innings in two rehab appearances with Binghamton.
