Brief Summary: Jeurys Familia’s First MLB Start
What Happened Last Night
Last night, Mets right-hander and noted prospect Jeurys Familia made his first major-league start (after seven relief appearances) — and did so in front of the excellent and straight-on Marlins center-field camera.
Familia’s Line
Here was Familia’s line from the same start (box): 4.0 IP, 17 TBF, 3 K, 6 BB, 3 GB on 8 batted-balls (37.5% GB), 7.94 xFIP.
Jeurys Familia’s Best Fastball
This is what Jeurys Familia’s best fastball looks like (to Carlos Lee in the second):

Jeurys Familia’s Best Slider
This is what Jeurys Familia’s best slider looks like (to Giancarlo Stanton in the third):

Jeurys Familia’s Other Pitches
Unfortunately, this is what most of Jeurys Familia’s other pitches looked like on Monday:


Today’s Notable Games
New York NL at Miami | 19:10 ET ***MLB.TV Free Game***
America’s most tender lover R.A. Dickey (222.2 IP, 84 xFIP-, 4.7 WAR) makes his final start of the season.
Readers’ Preferred Broadcast: New York Television (although, it might not feature Miami’s straight-on center-fielder camera).
Texas at Oakland | 22:05 ET
In Woody Allen’s 1975 comedy Love and Death, the Russian general gathers his soldiers and delivers a speech very much like this: “Men… Next week, we leave for the front. The object will be to kill as many Frenchmen as possible. Naturally, they are going to try and kill as many Russians as possible. If we kill more Frenchmen, we win. If they kill more Russians, they win.”
Readers’ Preferred Broadcast: Texas Radio.
Today’s Complete Schedule
Here’s the complete schedule for all of today’s games, with our very proprietary watchability (NERD) scores for each one. Pitching probables and game times aggregated from MLB.com and RotoWire. The average NERD Game Score for today is 3.1.
Note: the following Game Scores include the poorly conceived playoff-odds adjustment discussed in a recent edition of Daily Notes. Also note: the following table is entirely sortable.
