Frank Francisco Will Remain The Mets Closer

Frank Francisco will remain the New York Mets closer, Terry Collins told ESPN New York.

"I just told him yesterday was one of those days, that he's still the closer here and to be ready to pitch when we get him back out there," Collins said. "... I just went to him this morning and said, 'You've got to hang in there.' He's disappointed. He's mad at me because I took him out, which is the common thing that happens. And I certainly don't blame him. If I was in his shoes, I'd be mad too."

Through seven games this season, Francisco has three saves, but has also posted an 8.53 ERA with three walks. This is the 32-year-old’s first season in New York.

Last season Francisco posted 17 saves in 54 appearances for the Toronto Blue Jays, while posting a 3.55 ERA and 53 strikeouts in 50.2 innings of work.
