Mets News: Familia to start rehab stint, Francisco's status unclear


Mets News:


Reliever Jeurys Familia, who landed on the disabled list May 12 with biceps tendinitis, is due to begin a rehab assignment Saturday with Class A St. Lucie, Terry Collins said.

Collins said Familia is expected to also pitch with Triple-A Las Vegas before begin activated from the disabled list.

Frank Francisco, on the other hand, continues his exceedingly long rehab from December surgery to remove a bone spur from his right elbow. Collins described Francisco as status quo -- meaning no one in the organization can venture a guess as to when the ex-closer will declare himself healthy enough to resume pitching.

Francisco last pitched in a Florida State League game on May 8. He was examined five days later by team doctors, who found a mild strain of the flexor pronator. He was advised not to throw for 72 hours, then attempt to resume throwing.
