Mets | Frank Francisco not being named closer

New York Mets general manager Sandy Alderson did not name RP Frank Francisco (elbow) the closer Monday, Feb. 4, but Alderson said Francisco is having a normal recovery after having surgery in December to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. Francisco is not expected to be limited in spring training. "I think a lot will depend on what we see over the course of February and into March," Alderson said. "I think that's something that will be determined in the course of spring training. Health is an issue. Performance is an issue." RP Bobby Parnell is likely the primary alternative to Francisco, with RP Brandon Lyon in the background.
