Mets Injury Update: Jason Bay, Frank Francisco To Begin Rehab Assignments Wednesday

New York Mets outfielder Jason Bay and closer Frank Francisco will begin their rehab assignments with Class-A St. Lucie on Wednesday, according to a report (via ESPN New York). Bay has only played 22 games due to injury this season and hit .187 with four home runs, six RBI and seven walks. Francisco is recovering from an left oblique strain.

Bay has been on the disabled list since sustaining his second concussion in the past three seasons on June 15. After playing for St. Lucie, Bay will move up to Triple-A Buffalo before being activated by the Mets. Bay is expected to return for New York after the MLB All-Star break against the Washington Nationals on July 17.

Francisco threw off a mound on Saturday and is slated to throw off a mound again on Monday. His timetable for return is considered to be on the same track as Bay. Francisco is 1-3 on the season with a 4.97 ERA. He has 18 saves in 21 opportunities this season.
