One thing I do know is that since the DeBoer/Spott regime took over, the policy has always been to be open with players at the exit meetings. And I'm fairly certain Francisco was amongst a few players who were told in May that they likely weren't in the plans.

There was simply no way you can bring back a soft, unproductive 19 year old. There are already 16-year-olds capable of bringing a lot more to the table. But I suspect he's just the first of a couple who know their days in blue are history.
