Mets | Jeurys Familia files for arbitration

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 11:58:24 -0800

New York Mets CL Jeurys Familia has filed for salary arbitration. He is seeking $4.8 million next season while the team has countered with a $3.3 million offer.

Fantasy Tip: Familia went 2-2 with a 1.85 ERA and 43 saves in 76 appearances last season, with 86 strikeouts in 78 innings. He can be streaky at times but should be one of the first closers selected in this spring's fantasy drafts.

Mets | Jeurys Familia, Tyler Clippard unavailable

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 16:06:21 -0700

New York Mets RPs Jeurys Familia and Tyler Clippard are unavailable against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, Sept. 10, because of heavy usage this week. RP Addison Reed could be used in a save situation Thursday as a result.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to see here. Don't freak out if you own Familia and he isn't in there tonight if a save situation arises. He recorded the save in each of the last three nights in the series sweep of the Washington Nationals, throwing a combined three innings and fanning five.

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 17:38:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia recorded his 30th save of the season against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, Aug. 7. He allowed one hit and struck out one batter in one scoreless inning of work.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has struggled since the All-Star break, recording just three saves in six opportunities while going 0-1 with a 5.23 ERA in 10 contests. However, he does not appear to be in danger of losing his job as the Mets' closer.

Mets | Jeurys Familia blows save

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:37:49 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia blew his fifth save of the season, allowing three runs on three hits in an 8-7 loss to the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Familia may deserve a bit of a pass for this one. He recorded the first two outs of the inning, but he was then forced to sit for 44 minutes because of a rain delay, and he was lit up when play resumed. Still, he has now blown three straight save chances, and the recently acquired Tyler Clippard could start to steal away some saves opportunities any day now.

Mets | Jeurys Familia remains closer

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:47:32 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain in the closer role, per manager Terry Collins Thursday, July 30. Familia has blown all three of his save attempts since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Familia's ERA remains at just 1.70, and he does have 27 saves for the season. It's a rough patch for a guy who had previously been nearly untouchable, but his leash can't be much longer with Tyler Clippard now nipping at his heals.

Mets | Tyler Clippard to work as setup man

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:44:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets RP Tyler Clippard is expected to work as a setup man for CL Jeurys Familia, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was acquired from the Oakland Athletics Monday, but he is not expected to close in Queens like he was previously doing in Oakland. His fantasy value in standard leagues takes a hit as a result, although he is a solid addition in NL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. He can also be a boon to fantasy owners in leagues which offer holds as a category.

Mets | Jeurys Familia sticking as closer

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:51:12 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain as the team's closer after the acquisition of RP Tyler Clippard from the Oakland Athletics Monday, July 27, according to a source. Clippard will serve as the setup man.

Fantasy Tip: Despite blowing his first two save chances in the second half, Familia still owns a 1.70 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 27 saves this year, so he's earned plenty of rope in the Mets bullpen. Clippard obviously will lose significant value with this move, but he still has value to his owners in deeper leagues in a setup role, and he could see the occasional save chance, especially if Familia continues to struggle in the second half.

Mets | Jeurys Familia struggling

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:13:12 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia has blown both of his save opportunities since the All-Star break, and his blown save against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, July 26, was his fourth blown save in 31 chances in 2015. It was the first time he had allowed multiple runs in an outing since last September. Familia insists that he is not tired.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has given up three earned runs in 4 1/3 innings so far in the second half. Based on what he did in the first half of the season, though, he still has plenty of rope as the team's closer. However, Bobby Parnell or Jenrry Mejia could see some opportunities if Familia continues to struggle down the stretch.
