JEURYS FAMILIA RUMORS

Mets Infield Defense Has Become A Major Liability

Generally speaking, the closer a game is to little league level, the harder it is to watch. You remember those days growing up and playing baseball all spring, summer and fall long. There were those games each and every season when things just got away. They almost always involved a play in which someone turned a single into a run after several throwing errors. Yesterdays game against...

Featured Post: The Emergence of Jeurys Familia

In his first full season in the big leagues, Jeurys Familia has been outstanding to say the least. The 24 year old has established himself as a key component to the success of the Mets bullpen this season and is being thrown into the conversation of being the closer of the future for the Amazin’s. In 61 appearances so far in 2014, Familia has pitched to a 1.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and...

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...

Scouts Are Raving About Jeurys Familia

Jeurys Familia hasn’t thrown a lot this winter, but when he has, he’s been lights out, missing a ton of bats and flashing the mid-to-upper-90s velocity that has scouts raving, writes Baseball Prospectus. You can’t put a lot of stock in winter league performances, but you can put a ton of stock in young pitchers returning from injury and regaining velocity and missing bats...

HYPE files: Jeurys Familia

Why the hype? Jeurys Familia, SP: Before the season started, Familia was considered one of the top three prospects in the Mets minor league systems. Coming into the season, some people ranked him higher than Matt Harvey and/or Zack Wheeler. As the season comes to an end, he has become a polarizing prospect. With a 96 MPH fastball and a biting slider, no one can argue his stuff...

Jeurys Familia may prove to be a second-half star

Readers of my Met’s Minors column may have grown accustomed to me ignoring players who might be struggling in a given week.  For this reason you have heard a lot about: Matt Harvey, Wilmer Flores, Zack Wheeler, Travis Taijeron and Aderlin Rodriguez, but less about others.  Well I tend to go by the doctrine of, “If I don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything...

Top 10 Mets Prospects of 2012: #3 Jeurys Familia

3. Jeurys Familia, Pitcher, Bats: R, Throws: R, Age: 22, ETA: 2012 It is only a matter of time before Jeurys Familia finds a home on the Mets 25-man roster. The 22-year old right-handed starter is arguably the hardest thrower the Mets have stashed in the farm system.  His fastball has been clocked in as fast as 97 mph. Now that the team has inked Jon Niese to a five-year deal, they’ll...
