Francisco rehab assignment delayed

By Adam Rubin

Frank Francisco, who was due to begin a rehab assignment Tuesday with the Brooklyn Cyclones, will wait a little longer before working back from a strained left oblique in the minors.

Francisco experienced right-knee discomfort Monday, a day after throwing a 40-pitch bullpen session at Citi Field. The team announced he received an anti-inflammatory injection.
