by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) New Mets closer Jeurys Familia has three saves in the last three nights, but he won't be getting a fourth Wednesday against Philadelphia. Mets manager Terry Collins has made him unavailable.

It remains to be seen who fills that role if a need arises. Carlos Torres and Jerry Blevins are two possibilities.

Mets pitcher Jerry Blevins out for Tuesday's game


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Mets P Jeurys Familia gets first save of season


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Mets reliever Jeurys Familia earned his first save of the 2015 season in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Braves. 

Familia recorded the last two outs in the ninth inning. He struck out Jonny Gomes and got Phil Gosselin to fly out to center. Through the first week of the season, Familia has a 3.38 ERA. 

"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."


Mets place Jenrry Mejia on DL, recall Erik Goeddel


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.

An MRI revealed Tuesday that Mejia has avoided structural damage in his elbow, but he'll rest after receiving a cortisone shot for the inflammation. Jeurys Familia will fill in as the team's closer while Mejia remains out.

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.


Mets could use Jeurys Familia as closer, Carlos Torres in setup role


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2015) Mets normal closer Jenrry Mejia dealing with an elbow injury, the door may be open to Jeurys Familia as the team's new closer, manager Terry Collins said Monday per ESPN.com.

Mejia felt stiffness in his elbow while warming up Monday and was unable to enter the game.

"He couldn't get it loose," Collins said. "With what we've seen right now, and with what he's had in the past, we had to shut him down."

Familia would slide into the closer's role with Carlos Torrestaking over the set up role in the eighth. Familia posted a 2-5 record in 2014 with five saves and a 2.21 ERA in 77 1/3 innings.


Report: Mets to go with four-man bench; Eric Campbell likely snubbed


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/4/2015) The Mets are expected to go with an eight-man bullpen and a four-man bench, snubbing Eric Campbell from an Opening Day roster spot, according to ESPN.

Campbell hit .255 (14 for 55) with six doubles, one triple, two home runs and nine RBI in 24 Grapefruit League games. The four-man bench will include Ruben Tejada, John Mayberry Jr., Kirk Nieuwenhuis and Anthony Recker.

Meanwhile, the eight-man bullpen will include Rafael Montero, Jeurys Familia, Jerry Blevins, Jenrry Mejia, Alex Torres, Carlos Torres, Sean Gilmartin, and Buddy Carlyle .


Mets trying to get Jeurys Familia to pitch up in the zone


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2015) Mets sinkerballer Jeurys Familia has made a living inducing ground balls and retiring righthanders. With injuries taking away several contributors from the Mets bullpen, however, the team wants to expand Familia's role, and that means moving his pitches up in the strike zone. 

"The way he pitches, everything's down, down, down, down, down," manager Terry Collins said, per MLB.com's Anthony DiComo. "We've got to change the look. If he's going to be that guy who we think possibly could pitch deep in the game, he's got to be able to do a couple other things. There's going to be a time when you're going to need a strikeout, especially against lefties. If he can give them something else to look at, he's going to have a better chance to strike them out."

Pitching coach Dan Warthen has made changes to Familia's delivery to help him pitch up in the zone. 

Familia has a 6.43 ERA so far this spring. 


Mets' Collins: Closer role is Bobby Parnell's job to lose


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Monday there will be a competition for the closer's role this spring, even though Jenrry Mejia performed well in the role last season. In fact, Collins even said injured reliever Bobby Parnell, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, is the incumbent closer.

"It's Bobby's (job) to lose," Collins said, per NJ.com. "I love competition."

Collins also mentioned Jeurys Familia and Vic Black as options for the closer's role. The Mets totaled 42 saves in 2014, with Mejia having a team-high 28 saves. Familia was second on the team with five.


Mets RP Familia has successful sports hernia surgery


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2014) Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia underwent successful surgery to repair a bilateral sports hernia Friday in Philadelphia, the team announced.

Familia could be in the conversation to close for the Mets next season. He posted a 2.21 ERA and 73:32 K:BB ratio in 77 1/3 innings while recording five saves this season.


Jeurys Familia could be in 2015 closer mix


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(9/23/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins told the Newark Star-Ledger that he wants Jeurys Familia to enter spring training next season with the goal of being the team's closer. Collins indicated that Familia would have an opportunity to close in 2015, particularly if Bobby Parnell has not completed his recovery from Tommy John surgery.

Familia has saved five games this season, but has served primarily in a setup role. In addition to getting 21 holds, he has posted a 2-5 record and a 2.30 ERA in 73 appearances.


Jeurys Familia secures fifth save Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia picked up his fifth save Tuesday, retiring the only batter he faced in his team's 2-0 win over the Rockies.

Closer Jenrry Mejia loaded the bases with one out, so the team turned to Josh Edgin and Familia, each of whom retired the only batter he faced to maintain the team's lead. Familia owns a 2.06 ERA and 61:30 K:BB ratio in 70 innings.


Jeurys Familia takes loss Monday vs. Marlins


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/1/2014) Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia was saddled with a loss Monday, allowing three runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk in one-third of an inning in his team's 9-6 defeat against the Marlins.

Though Familia (2-4) only had one run marked as "earned," all three runs can be laid at his feet, as the reliever made two throwing errors on sacrifices and also uncorked a run-scoring wild pitch. He owns a 2.13 ERA and 57:30 K:BB ratio in 67 2/3 innings.


Jeurys Familia picks up fourth save Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/20/2014) Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia earned his fourth save Wednesday, giving up one hit and one walk while striking out two in 1 2/3 scoreless innings to finish off his team's 8-5 win over the A's.

With closer Jenrry Mejia unavailable due to a back issue, Familia entered with the bases loaded and one out in the eighth inning, walked the first batter he faced then escaped the inning without further damage. He surrendered a two-out double in the bottom of the ninth but was able to strand the runner. Familia owns a 1.97 ERA and 56:28 K:BB ratio in 64 innings.


Mets closer situation getting interesting


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) Mets reliever Jeurys Familia recorded a save Monday night, filling in for an injured Jenrry Mejia, who expects to finish out the season despite contending with a tight calf, a sore leg, thigh and back and, oh yeah, a sports hernia.

Yeah, OK.

Further complicating matters is the fact Familia's save wasn't as clean as it could be. He allowed an earned run in 1 1/3 innings. It was his second straight shaky save. He allowed a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday at Philadelphia.

Of course, with a 1.97 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the year, he's by far the Mets' best option for saves should Mejia miss time, which seems highly plausible given that lengthy list of injuries. It's not like he hasn't stumbled while attempting to pitch through them. He blew his last save opportunity Sunday and has allowed at least one earned run in three of his last four appearances.

In this type of situation, we can only play hunches, and mine is that the Mets shut down Mejia at some point. If you play in a league where saves are scarce, you should check to see if Familia is already owned.


Jeurys Familia allows run in save vs. Phillies


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/11/2014) Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia earned his third save Monday despite giving up one earned run on one hit and one walk in 1 1/3 innings while striking out two in his team's 5-3 victory over the Phillies.

Familia has alternated save chances with regular closer Jenrry Mejia over the last few days as the team limits the closer's workload while he deals with an injury. Familia owns a 1.97 ERA and 50:25 K:BB ratio in 59 1/3 innings.


Jeurys Familia delivers second save Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) Mets pitcher Jeurys Familia recorded his second save Saturday, giving up one hit and one walk but pitching a scoreless 11th inning to finish off his team's 2-1 win over the Phillies.

Familia was the pitcher of choice for the save opportunity with Jenrry Mejia unavailable, and though he made things interesting, he ultimately got the job done. Familia owns a 1.86 ERA and 48:24 K:BB ratio in 58 innings.


Jeurys Familia nails down 15th save


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Mets reliever Jeurys Familia picked up his 15th save Sunday against the Brewers.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
