Mets | Jeurys Familia returns for save

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:41:05 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) reported no issues with his left groin after making his first relief appearance in six days Thursday, June 25, against the Milwaukee Brewers. Familia threw a perfect ninth inning and struck out one to convert his 20th save in 22 chances this year.

Fantasy Tip: Familia appears to be just fine, but you may want to keep Bobby Parnell within arm's reach or handcuff the two if at all possible in the event that Familia's groin injury returns.

Mets | Jeurys Familia ready to return

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:07:59 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) said he is good to return to the closing role Tuesday, June 23, after throwing before the game.

Fantasy Tip: Familia sat out this weekend with a sore groin. With Familia still not out of the woods yet, Bobby Parnell is worth owning in all leagues if you're scrounging for saves avenues.

Mets | Jeurys Familia out for weekend

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 14:51:55 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) will miss the rest of the weekend after a left groin issue surfaced on his final two pitches in the eighth inning Friday, June 19. He tested it Saturday, June 20, and has been prescribed anti-inflammatory medication but has not undergone an MRI. Familia does not believe he will land on the disabled list. RP Bobby Parnell will likely fill in at closer in the interim.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell should be picked up if you're save speculating. There's even a small chance he retains the role. However, his lengthy injury history doesn't give that theory much weight.

Mets | Bobby Parnell could close temporarily

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:17:10 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell could close games temporarily with RP Jeurys Familia expected to go on the paternity list soon.

Fantasy Tip: Don't go blowing all of your FAAB money on Parnell if you're looking for saves. Familia has done nothing to lose the ninth-inning duties and will return to the role all by himself after his child is born. However, if you're desperate for saves, Parnell could be worth the very temporary pickup, just don't spend much at all.

Mets | Jeurys Familia not expected to pitch

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 15:58:17 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia likely will not be available to pitch Friday, June 5, because he had a five-out save Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Familia should be able to pitch again in a day or two but needs time to rest his arm. Alex Torres could be called on to close the game Friday if it is needed but is not a fantasy option in most leagues.

Mets | Jeurys Familia blows first save

Mon, 18 May 2015 18:51:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia blew his first save of the season Monday, May 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Familia was a perfect nine for nine in save situations before he allowed the game-tying run in the top of the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has earned himself a long leash with his performance so far this season. Season-long owners should ignore this outing and continue to roll Familia into their lineups.

Mets | Jeurys Familia shares saves lead

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 18:06:20 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is tied with Atlanta Braves RP Jason Grilli for the MLB lead in saves through Sunday, April 19.

Fantasy Tip: Familia needs to be owned in all season-long leagues. Mets RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is nearing a return, but Familia's strong start to the season should allow the Mets to ease Parnell back into a late-inning role. Fantasy owners should capitalize on Familia's success for as long as it lasts.

Mets | Jeurys Familia unavailable vs. Phillies

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:27:05 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (rest) is unavailable to pitch against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 15, because he has pitched in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: With Familia taking the night off, Jerry Blevins and Carlos Torres are the most likely options to close out the game in a save situation. Blevins and Torres should be viewed as desperation adds for the save speculators in cavernous mixed league and NL-only formats.

Mets | Closer role could become fluid for Mets

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 14:10:09 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is the front-runner to close games with RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) headed to the disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins. However, Collins noted he may piece it together and use left-handed RP Jerry Blevins or another southpaw depending on matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Familia is a must-add arm, and for those desperate for saves, Blevins and even Buddy Carlyle -- who recorded the save in the last outing -- could be worth speculative adds. Bobby Parnell (elbow) is also working his way back and is expected to return to the closer role when healthy. All said, the Mets bullpen projects to have all the makings of a committee.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia shut down for 10 days

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 14:02:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow), who was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, April 7, will be shut down for at least 10 days after being diagnosed with posterior elbow inflammation in his right arm. Closing duties in the meantime will likely fall to RP Jeurys Familia. Familia pitched a perfect eighth inning Monday, April 6, and his fastball hit 98 mph.

Fantasy Tip: Familia will be a popular waiver wire acquisition this week for those in need of saves in the early going. Because of the notable injury history for Mejia, Familia's stay in the closer role could be extended.
