Worth noting


• Former closer Frank Francisco (right elbow inflammation) will throw two innings in a Minor League rehab game either Wednesday or Thursday, then take a day off before attempting to pitch in back-to-back games. Not until he completes that progression will the Mets consider activating him.

• Mets manager Terry Collins said that left-hander Pedro Feliciano, who was sidelined last week with a bout of food poisoning, saw his velocity increase from the low- to mid-80s over the month of April. The Mets left Feliciano back in Florida when they broke camp last month, instructing him to work on increasing his arm strength.
