JEURYS FAMILIA RUMORS

Familia Replacing Mejia As The Mets Closer?

Mike Vorkunov of NJ.com ponders if the Mets should just go with Jeurys Familia as the team’s closer next season. He argues that as as impressive as Jenrry Mejia was last season in his first stint as closer, Familia was far more consistent than him. “While Mejia’s saves could sometimes feel like he was walking a tight-rope (A 1.50 WHIP in save situations), Familia was more stable...

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 games so far in 2014, Familia has pitched to a 1.93 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and .208...

Familia Quickly Closing In On Closer Role

It seems like eons since the Mets were back in Spring Training given all the ups and downs we’ve endured during the first two months of the regular season. One of the players I was very excited about for the upcoming 2014 season, was starter-turned-reliever, Jeurys Familia. The hard-throwing 24-year old came into camp fresh off a dominating performance in Winter Ball that had more...

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...

Familia Activated From Disabled List

The Mets announced that RHP Jeurys Familia will rejoin the team in time for their doubleheader today against the Marlins. After undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs in his elbow last June, Familia has worked hard to get himself back to the big-league team. Going forward, Familia has put himself in line for a significant role in our 2014 bullpen. During his string of rehab games...

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...
