Francisco throws rehab; Millwood "realistic" for Monday
Frank Francisco threw one inning with Double-A Frisco on a medical rehabilitation assignment on Friday in San Antonio.
He needed 24 pitches in his one inning of work. Francisco had a strikeout and a hit allowed.
He was placed on the disabled list retroactive to July 10 with walking pneumonia. Francisco will be re-evaluated after this outing to see if he’s ready to be activated.
Millwood took Friday off in his recovery from a strained left gluteus muscle, which he says is feeling all right. He will not make his start on Sunday but says it’s “realistic” he’ll go Monday.
His baseball-related activities on Saturday will be dictated by how he feels when he comes to the ballpark.
Scott Feldman will make Sunday’s start on short rest after his abbreviated outing on Wednesday.
