Mets' Jeurys Familia: Solid start to year continues
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia walked one and struck out one in 1.1 scoreless innings of relief during Tuesday's loss to the Nationals.

After Steven Matz was chased from the game early, the Mets' bullpen combined for five clean frames, with Familia doing his part. The 30-year-old has posted a 3.18 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 6:3 K:BB through 5.2 innings over six appearances so far, but the heavy workload has resulted in only one hold. Despite his solid results so far, Familia still appears to be behind the likes of Seth Lugo and Dellin Betances for high-leverage opportunities.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Hoping to rebound with new splitter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia has changed the grip on his split-finger fastball to make it function as more of an off-speed pitch, John Harper of SNY reports.

At the urging of new Mets pitching coach Jeremy Hefner, Familia widened his fingers when throwing the pitch to create more separation in velocity between it and his sinker. The right-hander also lost 30 pounds this offseason, resulting in cleaner and easier mechanics on the mound. The improvements resulted in a 1.80 ERA and 5:3 K:BB through five innings this spring before MLB was put on pause, and if Familia is able to return to form he could be a key part of the club's late-inning crew. His actual role once the regular season begins is unclear; however. Edwin Diaz remains the closer, and Seth Lugo, Justin Wilson and even potentially Dellin Betances -- who's still making his way back from a torn Achilles -- could all be ahead of Familia as setup options.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Heading into spring in better shape
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia dropped 30 pounds since the end of last season, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

Players reporting to camp in better shape is hardly uncommon news for this time of year and is rarely enough reason on its own to adjust a player's projection. For those looking for a reason to buy a bounceback from Familia after his 5.70 ERA last season, however, this is at least something to point to. The good version of Familia, who has saved 124 games in his career and owns a 3.16 ERA over eight seasons in the big leagues, could potentially push for a ninth-inning role if Edwin Diaz falters again, but his weight loss alone isn't enough reason to assume he'll be back to his previous form.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Grabs win in nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (3-1) picked up the win in the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Marlins, walking one and striking out one in a scoreless seventh inning.

The right-hander was in the right place at the right time, as the Mets erupted for three runs in the bottom of the frame to take a 5-4 lead they wouldn't relinquish. Familia has had a rough season but has been pitching a little better since coming off the IL in early July, posting a 4.00 ERA through nine innings -- albeit with a shaky 11:9 K:BB and 2.11 WHIP in nine innings.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Familia was sent to the shelf June 18 due to a Bennett lesion in his right shoulder, but he managed to make a rehab appearance Friday without issue and will return to the team in time for Tuesday's series opener. He'll aim to get back on track after posting a 7.81 ERA with a 28:21 K:BB over 27.2 innings so far this season, and he's expected to continue to see action in high-leverage scenarios, per Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) made a rehab appearance Friday and felt fine afterward, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Familia was sharp Friday, throwing just 13 pitches over 1.1 clean innings and punching out two batters, so the Mets are deciding if he needs any more time in the minors before coming off the injured list. One way or another, it's looking likely Familia will be back in the Mets' bullpen before the All-Star break.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Nearing rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) could begin a minor-league rehab assignment in the near future, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

Familia has been on the shelf since June 18 with a Bennet lesion in his right shoulder, but he's feeling better and nearing a return to game action. While the right-hander spent time on the injured list earlier in the season due to the same issue, he said he's not considering surgery at this point, per Anthony DiComo of

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Not scheduled for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) will not undergo an MRI, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports.

Familia spent time on the injured list earlier in the season due to the same issue (a Bennett lesion), so the Mets don't believe another MRI is necessary. The reliever will rest and do arm exercises until he's cleared to resume throwing.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Heading to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday with a Bennett lesion in his right shoulder, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.

It's not clear how much time Familia is expected to miss. The injury perhaps explains why he allowed seven runs while recording just four outs over his last two outings, though he's struggled all season, with his ERA sitting at 5.81 even before those two rough appearances.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Nabs seventh hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia struck out both batters he faced to record his seventh hold of the season in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

After Zack Wheeler ran out of gas in the eighth inning and put runners on first and second with one out in a 4-3 game, Familia came in and fanned Dawel Lugo and Nick Castellanos on nine pitches to end the threat. The right-hander's numbers on the year aren't pretty, largely as a result of a 6.5 BB/9, but since coming off the IL in mid-May he's been more effective with a 4.26 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 6:2 K:BB through 6.1 innings.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Tosses scoreless frame in IL return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) struck out one in a perfect eighth inning Wednesday in the Mets' 5-1 loss to the Nationals.

The Mets brought Familia back from the 10-day injured list ahead of Tuesday's series opener, but he wasn't summoned from the bullpen until a low-leverage opportunity surfaced Wednesday. Familia skirted any trouble in his first appearance back from the IL, but he may need to string together a few quality showings in a row before the Mets reinstall him as the top setup man for closer Edwin Diaz.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Will be activated Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mets plan to activate Familia (shoulder) ahead of Tuesday's series opener against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

New York was planning to reinstate Familia on Sunday, but that was scrapped after the Mets' game against the Marlins was postponed due to inclement weather. Familia thus shouldn't face any restrictions while picking up a couple extra days of rest before returning to the big leagues, though Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports notes that the right-hander won't immediately reclaim his normal setup role.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Expects to return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) said he expects the Mets to activate him from the injured list prior to Sunday's game, Anthony DiComo of reports.

After spending a week or so rehabbing in Port St. Lucie, Familia is now back in New York and said that he's feeling "back to normal." It sounds like Familia will return after missing just one more than the minimum 10 days required by his IL stint, but it would not be a surprise if the Mets eased him back in with a couple lower-leverage appearances before returning Familia to setup duty.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Heads to Florida to rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (shoulder) traveled to Port. St. Lucie to rehab, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

Familia landed on the injured list earlier in the week with a sore shoulder, but the fact that he's already ready to begin rehabbing suggests his stay on the shelf may not be an extended one. The veteran reliever will be eligible to return May 11, and the hope is that he'll be ready to return at that time or shortly after.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Lands on injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday with a sore shoulder, Justin Toscano of The Bergen Record reports.

Familia has allowed four runs over his last three appearances, potentially due to his shoulder issues. An MRI taken Wednesday revealed a Bennett lesion (an issue similar to a bone spur), Anthony DiComo of reports. He received an injection Wednesday and will be out for at least 10 days; according to Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo! Sports, the Mets hope Familia will be ready to return when first eligible. Ryan O'Rourke's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Falters in save chance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia blew the save in Tuesday's win over the Reds by allowing two runs on four hits over 1.2 innings. He struck out three and walked one.

Familia was called upon for the six-out save with Edwin Diaz receiving the night off, but he was unable to maintain the 3-1 lead. Familia now owns a 6.28 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 15:13 K:BB through 14.1 innings this season.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: To handle closing duties Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

If the situation arises, Familia will be used as the closer Tuesday night against the Reds, Anthony DiComo of reports.

Edwin Diaz will be rested after pitching in three straight games, so the Mets will turn to Familia in a save situation. Skipper Mickey Callaway also noted that Familia could toss multiple innings, if necessary.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia gave up a run on two hits and a walk over an inning of relief in Sunday's loss to Atlanta.

The right-hander now carries a rough 5.87 ERA and 1.83 WHIP through 7.2 innings, and he's earned them -- Familia has walked a batter in five straight appearances, and been tagged for runs in three of his last four outings. He does have two wins and two holds, but the Mets need Familia to regain his form and solidify the set-up crew -- the team currently sits 27th in bullpen ERA, even with Edwin Diaz doing his thing in the ninth inning.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Notches win in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia (1-0) picked up the win Monday, striking out one in a perfect eighth inning as the Mets downed the Marlins 7-3.

The right-hander entered the game with the score knotted at 3-3, but a big top of the ninth -- highlighted by Pete Alonso's first big-league homer -- put Familia in the win column. He's looking good so far as Edwin Diaz's main setup man, collecting a hold as well in three appearances with a 0.00 ERA and 3:1 K:BB.

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Looking strong this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Familia tossed a perfect inning of relief while striking out one in Thursday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals.

The right-hander now boasts an impressive 7:1 K:BB through five spring innings. Familia will open the campaign as the Mets' primary eighth-inning man in front of Edwin Diaz, and he's capable of providing plenty of strikeouts and racking up 20-plus holds in that role while seeing the occasional save chance on days Diaz is unavailable.
