New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia had difficulty getting loose Tuesday, July 8, and will not be used Wednesday, July 9. Manager Terry Collins called it a red flag.
Fantasy Tip: Familia finished off the Braves last night in a non-save situation, when Jenrry Mejia was unavailable. Familia appears to be the No. 2 candidate for saves for the Mets, so he is worth a speculative add in NL-only and deep leagues, if you're searching for saves. However, if there is a health issue, Carlos Torres or Vic Black could be next in line.

Manager Terry Collins thinks RP Jenrry Mejia, who threw two innings Sunday, would be available.

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery Tuesday, April 8. He'll miss the rest of the 2014 season.
Fantasy Tip: This leaves a giant vacuum in the Mets' SV picture, which is currently being filled by Jose Valverde. This gives him some more leeway, and he's looked decent lately. But for the rest of the season, he's a shaky bet. Others, including Jeurys Familia, Gonzalez Germen and Vic Black or someone not currently on the club could chime in. Valverde is best used as a third mixed closer. Be careful.
