Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia to get the day off Saturday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) Mets relief pitcher Jeurys Familia will be given the day off for Saturday's matchup against the Marlins after pitching in five straight games, manager Terry Collins said per ESPN.com.

"We have a game Sunday and then another off day," Collins said. "This will get them refreshed a little."

If the team needs a closer for Saturday, Jerry Blevins will fill in, Collins said.

Familia has picked up five saves this season in 6 2/3 innings of work with nine strikeouts and one walk.

"We didn't see any of the sink [in spring training] that Familia has now," Collins said. "Now the games count, and we're seeing the same stuff we saw last season. When his ball sinks, you see guys swing over the top of it. If it's sinking, it's hard to hit."


Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins out for Tuesday's game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/14/2015) Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Phillies, according to NJ.com.

Blevins has appeared in three of New York's last four games and has three holds so far this season with a 0.00 ERA and four strikeouts. Jeurys Familia will be available out the bullpen.

The Mets are currently the favorites (-220) over the Phillies Tuesday.


Mets' Jerry Blevins to also see time as closer this season


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Mets reliever Jerry Blevins will also see some time as the team's closer with Jenrry Mejia heading to the disabled list, reports MLB.com.

While manager Terry Collins indicated Jeurys Familia will see the bulk of the work, Blevins will close in matchup situations if left-handed hitters are expected in the ninth.

"We'll piece it together," Collins said. "It depends on what the situations are going to be. If Jeurys shows us he can get lefties out, in some certain situations he'll be the guy. But we're very fortunate to have three lefties down there. If there's a case where we just think our best option is going to be a lefty, we'll go there. But right now, Jeurys is going to close."


Mets' Buddy Carlyle picks up first career save in Opening Day win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) With Jenrry Mejia sidelined due to an elbow injury, Mets relievers Jerry Blevins and Buddy Carlyle pitched the ninth inning of Monday's 3-1 win against the Nationals.

The left-hander Blevins kicked off the ninth inning against Bryce Harper, who bats left-handed. Harper lined out to right. 

Carlyle then replaced Blevins, and finished off the win by getting Ryan Zimmerman and Wilson Ramos to ground out. It was his first career save.

After Monday's win, manager Terry Collins indicated Jeurys Familia would likely be the closer if Mejia goes on the disabled list. Bobby Parnell, who is expected to compete for the closer's role once healthy, is on the disabled list to begin the season.

We have a chance to shock some people in the East. We've got such high talent. I'd put this rotation against anybody's, and this experience."

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
