Mets | Frank Francisco to begin rehab assignment

New York Mets RP Frank Francisco (elbow) will start a rehab assignment with Single-A St. Lucie Tuesday, April 16, according to a team source.

Fantasy Tip: The oft-injured Francisco has become a forgotten man in New York thanks to his most recent injury. His recovery process has been very slow, and the team has no reason to rush him now that they have placed Bobby Parnell in the closer's role. Francisco has a long road back before he's pitching in meaningful innings in relief. There is no guarantee he'll even have a chance to reclaim the closer's job, either.
