Francisco headed to B-Mets

By Adam Rubin

Frank Francisco will continue his rehab assignment this weekend with Double-A Binghamton, pitching coach Dan Warthen said.

The Mets had mulled immediately bringing Francisco to the majors and placing Jeurys Familia (biceps tendinitis) on the disabled list. Terry Collins said Familia is unavailable Saturday and remains day-to-day.

Francisco's maximum 30-day rehab assignment expires Thursday, so Francisco should be activated in a matter of days.
