Frank Francisco to come off DL, rejoin Mets on Friday

Out since late June with an oblique injury, Frank Francisco has completed his minor-league rehab assignment and will come off the disabled list tomorrow.

Bobby Parnell hasn’t exactly been unhittable lately as the fill-in closer and Francisco threw shutout ball in each of his last four rehab outings, so he may reclaim ninth-inning duties pretty quickly.

Of course, Francisco had a 4.97 ERA and allowed 47 baserunners in 29 innings before the DL stint, so it would also be tough to blame manager Terry Collins for easing him back into high-leverage situations.

    One of many Mets that will clear waivers. Here’s hoping FF throws a few good innings in August so we could get something for him.

    I’m thinking a package of some bubble-gum and toilet paper gets it done.
