Armed With New Lethal Splitter, Familia Notches 35th Save

Jeurys Familia earned his 35th save of the season in yesterday’s 5-4 win over the Red Sox. Despite allowing the first two runners to reach base, Familia looked extremely impressive as he escaped the jam in dominant fashion. He overpowered Alejandro De Aza and Travis Shaw for the first two outs of the inning, and […]

Gut Reaction: Mets 5, Red Sox 4 (8/30/15)

Our long national nightmare is over as the Mets broke a two-game losing streak with a 5-4 nail-biting win over the Red Sox Sunday afternoon. Jeurys Familia came on in the ninth with a one-run lead and promptly gave up two hits. But he earned his 35th save of the season, with two strikeouts bookending a fielder’s choice. Tyler Clippard played a big role, pitching out of a jam in...

Familia Earns 34th Save, Adds New Filthy Splitter To Arsenal

Last night in a 6-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies, Terry Collins asked his closer Jeurys Familia to get four outs for his ball club. Familia did exactly that, and the Mets perserved in a much needed victory to remain 5 1/2 games up on the Washington Nationals. Familia came on in the bottom of […]

New York Mets: Providing your daily heart attack since 1962

The New York Mets were up 5-1 heading into the ninth inning last night against the Baltimore Orioles. DeGrom pitched another gem and then had to rely on a shaky bullpen to finish the job. Tyler Clippard, after a solid eighth inning, puts two on base in the ninth and then Terry Collins brings in Jeurys Familia for what is now officially a save opportunity. It’s almost as if Terry...

Gut Reaction: Mets 3 Dodgers 2 (10) (7/26/15)

Jeurys Familia blew his second save in a week. The Mets didn’t hit all that much against Zack Grienke. In fact, they had no extra-base hit at all, technically. And they won, anyway. Juan Uribe blasted a ball off the wall in the bottom of the 10th, scoring Curtis Granderson, who had led off with a double. Uribe was credited with a single, but under any other circumstances, that...

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...
