Closer Frank Francisco has a similar timetable for a return from a left oblique strain. Francisco threw off a mound Saturday in Port St. Lucie, Fla., for the first time since suffering the injury. He again is due to throw off a mound tomorrow, and could be in the same rehab game as Bay on Wednesday, according to Collins.
As for Andres Torres, who remains active despite missing the entire Cubs series with back discomfort, the center fielder is hoping to be available Friday in Atlanta for the second-half opener. Torres said he will remain in New York during the break and get treatment.
