Familia Out With Tightness In Left Groin

As if an awful 2-1 loss to the Atlanta Braves on Friday night wasn’t enough, we may be without the team’s most valuable player for at least the next two games and maybe more. In the bottom of the eighth inning Jeurys Familia was brought in with the bases loaded to try and stop the bleeding after the Braves scored two runs to take the lead. Like the warrior that he is, Familia...

Closer Report, Week 11 – Save La Familia

You ever look at a pitcher and just realize that he's running out of gas much sooner than you expected him too?  Well, that's what I am noticing from the Mets closer of the moment, Jeurys Familia.  He is pitching like his best friend died or his pet rock was used in a terrarium for a science fair project.  I am not liking the trend of the K's disappearing, hell he went four appearances...

Bobby Parnell Could Close For A Few Days

Closer Jeurys Familia is awaiting the birth of a new child. Once he lands on the paternity list, which could come as early as this weekend, former Mets closer Bobby Parnell could close for a day or two in Familia’s absence. Parnell recently rejoined the team on Wednesday after missing all of 2014 with Tommy John surgery. “I think this is an ideal situation to put Bobby in a...

Is Jeurys Familia The Mets MVP?

Last night, Jeurys Familia showed why he’s the closer of the future for the Mets. He entered the game with one out in the eighth and finished off a five-out save. It marked Familia’s third straight outing of more than one inning and his fourth this season. Familia’s numbers this season are absolutely incredible. The 25 year-old has a 1.35 ERA in 26.2 innings over 25 games,...

The sheer dominance of Jeurys Familia

Jeurys Familia was thrust into the closer’s role this season after showing some improvements the year before. Bobby Parnell, last year’s presumed closer went down in his first game, received Tommy John surgery for his trouble and is still on his way back to pitching in the majors. The man who took over the ninth inning for the vast proportion of 2014, Jenrry Mejia, is out until...

Reacting to Familia saving over Parnell

Earlier this week, New York Mets manager Terry Collins announced that Jeurys Familia will continue to hold the closer’s role for the first few weeks of Bobby Parnell’s return from TJ Surgery. This means that Familia will be holding the closer’s job well into the beginning of the season, and may hold onto it for a long while after that. Both of these two have had success...

Jeurys Familia needs to rely on control, deception

The New York Mets’ bullpen will play host to a myriad of superb closer candidates this spring – perhaps none more so than Jeurys Familia. Familia, 25, has the opportunity to step into a closing role this spring while incumbent Bobby Parnell works his way back from Tommy John surgery. The dynamic pitcher’s emergence in 2014 can be attributed to a devastating mix of a 96.2 mph...

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...
