Jeurys Familia (shoulder) began a throwing program Thursday at the Mets' spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
Familia underwent surgery in mid-May for an arterial blood clot in his right shoulder and probably won't be ready to return to the Mets until sometime in August. There's also the possibility of a setback or two along the way. Addison Reed will continue to fill in at closer for New York, unless he's traded ahead of the July 31 deadline. Jul 13 - 1:50 PM

Jeurys Familia (shoulder) is expected to begin throwing during the All-Star break.

Familia is now about two months removed from surgery to remove an arterial blood clot in his right shoulder. He still has an eye toward making it back during the second half. Addison Reed has been filling in at closer, but he's an obvious trade candidate this month.
Jul 7 - 7:19 PM

Jeurys Familia (shoulder) is hoping to be cleared to resume a throwing program when he visits the doctor on Friday.

Familia has been limited to stretching and conditioning exercises to this point as he works his way back from surgery to remove an arterial blood clot in his right shoulder. If he's cleared, he'll head to the Mets' spring training complex in Florida to continue his rehab. The Mets are hoping he can return to pitch this season, but it's not a guarantee.
Jun 12 - 5:07 PM

Jeurys Familia (shoulder) hopes to be cleared to begin a throwing program in two weeks.

Familia underwent surgery earlier this month to remove an arterial blood clot from his right shoulder, but he said Monday that he's feeling good. He's still holding out hope to return down the stretch. Addison Reed will hold down the closer role for now.
May 30 - 9:22 AM

Mets transferred RHP Jeurys Familia from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Neil Ramirez on the 40-man roster. Familia underwent surgery Friday for a "blockage of the posterior circumflex humeral artery" on his right side and is expected to miss 3-4 months.
May 16 - 1:10 PM

Jeurys Familia (shoulder) can resume throwing in six weeks.

Familia underwent surgery Friday to "repair a blockage of the posterior circumflex humeral artery on his right side." The surgery calls for a 3-4 month recovery, which means we won't see Familia until at least August. Addison Reed will handle save chances in his absence.
May 13 - 7:43 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Friday that Jeurys Familia will be out "several months" after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot from his right armpit area.

Alderson said there's a chance Familia could make it back before the end of the season, but there's a distinct possibility that he won't. It's obviously a major blow for the Mets, but at least they have a viable alternative in Addison Reed. Reed has a chance to be a top-tier closer the rest of the way.
May 12 - 5:15 PM

Mets placed RHP Jeurys Familia on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 11, with an arterial blood clot in his right shoulder.

It's still unclear whether Familia will need surgery or obviously how long he'll be out. He was slated to see thoracic outlet syndrome specialist Dr. Robert Thompson in St. Louis in order to get a clearer picture of his diagnosis. Addison Reed will serve as the Mets' closer indefinitely.
May 12 - 4:22 PM

Jeurys Familia has been diagnosed with an arterial clot in his right shoulder and is flying to St. Louis for tests and possible surgery.

Familia will visit Dr. Robert Thompson, who performed Matt Harvey's thoracic outlet procedure. This news comes as a major surprise even after Familia's ugly performance Wednesday against the Giants -- his velocity has been fine, and he told reporters after the outing that his arm felt good. Addison Reed obviously needs to be scooped up in any league where he was dropped. Look for an update on Familia's status Friday.
May 11 - 1:51 PM

Jeurys Familia blew his first save of the season Wednesday in the Mets' loss to the Giants.

Wilmer Flores deserves some of the blame here after botching a potential game-ending double play, but it's not like Familia was sharp. He walked two, gave up a game-tying RBI single to Hunter Pence, and then Christian Arroyo smacked a bases-clearing three-run double to give the Giants the lead for good. Familia recorded only one out and was charged with three earned runs. He now has a 3.86 ERA and 1.61 WHIP in 9 1/3 innings this season.
May 10 - 4:45 PM

Jeurys Familia earned a win Monday in the Mets' walkoff win over the Giants.

Familia worked a scoreless top of the ninth to keep the game tied 3-3 and then watched Neil Walker hit a walkoff RBI single in the bottom of the ninth. The 27-year-old closer has a shiny 1.13 ERA in nine appearances since his activation from suspension.
May 8 - 11:21 PM

Jeurys Familia tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning against the Marlins on Friday for his fourth save of the season.

Familia needed just seven pitches to make it through the frame. The 27-year-old was a little shaky after returning from his suspension, but he has looked more like himself in his last three outings.
May 5 - 10:43 PM

Jeurys Familia earned his second save Monday in the Mets' defeat of the Braves.

Familia gave up a one-out single to Jace Peterson in the bottom of the ninth, but he got Ender Inciarte to ground into a double play to end the game. The 27-year-old closer looks to be settling in now after some early shakiness.
May 1 - 11:46 PM

Jeurys Familia recorded his first save of the season on Saturday, working a perfect ninth inning to protect a two-run lead against the Nationals.

Familia had been shaky since returning from the disabled list, so Saturday's outing had to be a welcomed sight to both Mets' fans and fantasy owners alike. He now carries a 1.80 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio through his first five innings.
Apr 29 - 4:32 PM

Jeurys Familia walked in the go-ahead run in the 11th inning in Friday’s loss to the Nationals.

Josh Smoker began the 11th inning after tossing a scoreless 10th, but he was pulled after giving up a one-out double and Daniel Murphy was intentionally walked. Familia, who threw 30 pitches in his season debut on Thursday, then issued consecutive walks to Anthony Rendon and pinch-hitter Trea Turner to force in a run. He bounced back from there to strike out Chris Heisey and Jose Lobaton swinging, but the damage was done. Look for him to get the day off Saturday.
