(5/18/2015) Mets closer Jeurys Familia allowed a run in the ninth inning to tie the game and earned his first blown save of the year in New York's 2-1 win over the Cardinals in 14 innings on Monday.

Familia allowed back-to-back hits with one out to put runners on first and third. Then, after a battle with Jason Heyward, Familia surrendered a sacrifice fly to bring home the game-tying run. It was Familia's first blown save of the season.

"Every time I go to pitch, I try to do my job, do the best I can," Familia said, per The New York Times. "It doesn't matter who's pitching. I tried to throw strikes and finish the game. They made adjustments."

Familia moved his ERA to 1.86 in 19 1/3 innings of work.

Seizing the opportunity, Mets P Jeurys Familia is thriving as closer


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/5/2015) Among all of the early surprises in baseball this season, Jeurys Familia is certainly near the top of the list. Familia has become the closer for the Mets, due in-large to a bulk of injuries, and a suspension to Jenrry Mejia. But these circumstances have allowed Familia to shine, and shine he has.

“Every bullpen pitcher has that kind of moment where you have step up and learn from the bad moments you had, the bad games you had,” said Familia, per the Wall Street Journal. “That’s what I did.”

Through his first 13 appearances in 2015, the 25-year-old right-hander has a 1.35 ERA and has recorded 10 saves, which is currently the most in the National League. He has also struck out an impressive 10.8 batters per nine innings. So, what's the secret behind this new-found success? That would be his improved slider, according to Mets backup catcher Anthony Recker.

“When we tried to use it as a strike [last season], it was hit or miss,” Recker said, whereas this season, “It’s been devastating.”

"I just went out there and tried to do my job, threw my fastball and my breaking ball over the plate, and made the hitter make contact," Familia said, via ESPN.com. "... I felt like always. If I pitch the seventh, the eighth inning or the ninth inning, I always go out there and do my job."


Jenrry Mejia may not get Mets' closer job back upon return


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) While Jenrry Mejia is on the Mets disabled list with an elbow injury, Jeurys Familia is filling in as closer.

However, when Mejia returns to the team, he may not get his old job back right away.

That's a tough one because I don't know exactly the extent of how long it's going to take Jenrry to get back," manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "Maybe when he first gets back maybe we get his feet wet a little bit to make sure he's OK and if Jeurys is throwing the ball good we'll leave him there right now."


Terry Collins confirms Jeurys Familia will close for the Mets


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/8/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins confirmed Wednesday Jeurys Familia will serve as the team's closer heading forward, but could use lefties in situational matchups as well, reports MLB.com.

Familia was expected to fill into the role with Jenrry Mejia heading to the disabled list. Familia posted a 5.59 ERA with eight strikeouts and four walks in 11 appearances this spring.

"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."

Collins wants to see how well Familia can handle the role.

"He's made huge advancements," Collins said. "Last year in the second half of the season, I thought his confidence just soared each and every time he went out there. He throws so hard, he's got to command that big sinker that he's got and he started doing that. That, and the fact that he threw his breaking ball for strikes, he became tough to hit. We all thought down the line, if something ever happened, he's got closer kind of stuff. We'll see how he does."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2015) The Mets will place pitcher Jenrry Mejia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 5, and recall pitcher Erik Goeddel, the team announced Tuesday.

Goeddel surrendered two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings in his major-league debut last season. He posted a 5.37 ERA and 64:30 K:BB ratio in 63 2/3 Triple-A innings last season.
