JEURYS FAMILIA RUMORS

Why Mets' Jeurys Familia views rocky World Series as a 'positive' experience

Familia was presented with a Thurman Munson Award on Tuesday night NEW YORK -- For nearly all of last season, Jeurys Familia was the most reliable piece of the Mets bullpen. Despite being thrust into the closer role for the first time in his career, Familia evolved into a dominant late-inning force, converting 43 saves while posting a 1.85...

The One Mets Pitcher Who Should Receive an Extension

Last year, the Mets were carried by their pitching. It helped them sustain an anemic offense until the Mets got healthy and made some key trades. It helped carry them to the World Series.

What Will Familia Do For An Encore This Season

With Antonio Bastardo already in camp, the New York Mets bullpen will start to take form. There’s a battle for the last spot, depending on whether Sean Gilmartin, Rafael Montero or Logan Verrett can fill the sixth starter role. Bastardo believes he’ll be the answer in the 8th inning, although Addison Reed will likely have something to say about that. There’s also some concern...

Mets Notes: Cespedes Has Physical, Robles’ Appeal, Familia and Walker Headed For Hearings

Jeurys Familia in Context Is Unfair

The Mets closer has a new pitch, and it is fantastic. A 95 mph split-finger fastball is already superlative by name, but when you drill down into the arsenal of Jeurys Familia, it starts to look unique… and unfair. But first we must appreciate the pitch in all its GIF glory. Nasty. I wanted to put this pitch, and Familia’s arsenal, in context, but it’s difficult with relievers...

Jeurys Familia faces uphill battle for Opening Day roster spot

The good news is that Jeurys Familia has not pitched in the first three exhibition games of the year and is therefore not among the nine pitchers in camp with an ERA of 9.00 or above. The bad news is, well, just about everything else. Familia has gone from hot-shot pitching prospect to potential future closer to staring at another season in the minors and being bypassed by others...
