Trouble for Francisco in first rehab outing
NEW YORK -- Frank Francisco made his first rehab appearance on Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton, but he could not escape his only inning.

The closer, on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left oblique, pitched two-thirds of an inning and allowed two runs on three hits and a walk. He gave up a leadoff double, then retired the next two batters before surrendering a single and a double. He walked the next batter and exited with the bases loaded.

He threw 24 pitches, 14 for strikes.

The right-hander threw a 40-pitch bullpen session on Monday but experienced discomfort in his knee afterward, and required an injection.

He has a 4.97 ERA in 31 games, and has converted 18 of his 21 save opportunities.
