|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/29/13) Mets pitcher Frank Francisco, who saved 23 games for the team in 2012, pitched a scoreless ninth inning in Sunday's finale to pick up his first save of 2013 in his team's 3-2 win over the Brewers.
Francisco pitched 6 1/3 innings in eight appearances since joining the team in early September. He finishes with a 4.26 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB ratio.

|Frank Francisco likely still out |

(9/18/13) Mets reliever Frank Francisco was not sporting a bandage Wednesday, but is still not ready to pitch. According to MLB.com, Francisco is still a few days from returning, as he recovers from a line drive taken off his pitching hand Saturday.
|Frank Francisco out several days with hand injury |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/15/13) Mets manager Terry Collins revealed Sunday that pitcher Frank Francisco will miss "three to four days" after being hit on the hand by a line drive in Saturday's game, the Star-Ledger reports.
Francisco said that the pain has subsided Sunday, only bothering him when he uses the injured hand. On Saturday, he thought that the hand was "broken for sure."
Francisco has made just four appearances, giving up three earned runs in 2 2/3 innings while striking out two and walking two.
|The Mets expected to have Frank Francisco back in the closer's role for a second straight season in 2013, but those plans got scraped early when Francisco had trouble recovering from offseason elbow surgery. Francisco got close to coming off the disabled list in mid-May, but he suffered a setback and it would take a few more months before the veteran right-hander made it back onto a major-league mound. When he finally pitched in September, Francisco didn't regain the closer's role and mostly pitched in losing efforts. Though, he did record a save in his final appearance. Francisco was 1-0 with a 4.26 ERA and 1.11 WHIP in eight relief outings. Injuries and control issues throughout Francisco's career have kept him from reaching his full potential. He's not on track to be a closer at the outset of the 2014 season and might not even be in a setup role, so you can probably leave Francisco on waivers until he becomes relevant again in Fantasy leagues.
