Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Jeurys Familia will continue to serve as the team's closer even after Bobby Parnell (elbow) and Vic Black (shoulder) return.

It's no surprise given how well he's pitched (2.70 ERA, 9/1 K/BB ratio over 6 2/3 innings, 5-for-5 in save chances) and the fact that Parnell's velocity has been down during his rehab assignment.

Taylor filled in admirably in center field while Denard Span was on the disabled list, batting .271/.314/.500 with two homers and two steals.

Chris Capuano (quad) will throw a 45-pitch live batting practice session on Sunday.

It's not clear what the plan is for Capuano after that, but he might be ready to begin a rehab assignment. The left-hander could challenge Adam Warren for the fifth spot in the Yankees' rotation once he's deemed ready.
