Jeurys Familia had a stress-free ninth inning en route to his 20th save in Thursday's 2-0 win against the Brewers.

Using 12 pitches, Familia got consecutive ground outs from Gerardo Parra and Jonathan Lucroy before fanning Ryan Braun to end the contest. It was his first save opportunity in 10 days as the struggling Mets haven't brought a one- to three-run lead into the ninth inning often lately. Familia has failed to get the save in only two of 22 chances while sporting a stellar 1.34 ERA with a 36/10 K/BB ratio in 33 2/3 innings.

Jeurys Familia (groin) said he's available on Tuesday.

Familia didn't pitch at all over the weekend due to left groin tightness, but he's obviously feeling better now. The 25-year-old right-hander has a 1.38 ERA, 0.92 WHIP, and 35/10 K/BB ratio in 32 2/3 innings this season, and he's converted 19 saves in 21 tries.

Jeurys Familia is expected to be unavailable the remainder of the weekend due to left groin tightness.

Familia worked the final 1/3 of an inning in Friday's loss to the Braves and looked very uncomfortable on the mound, fueling speculation that there may have been an injury issue. He isn't scheduled to undergo an MRI exam at this point, though that could be on the horizon. Bobby Parnell may see some save chances.

Jeurys Familia allowed a solo home run and blew the save, but the Mets were still able to beat the Blue Jays on Monday, albeit in 11 innings.

Familia had recorded the final out of the eighth inning with a strikeout of Josh Donaldson, and took the mound in the ninth to preserve the Mets' 2-1 lead. Jose Bautista had other ideas, leading off the inning with a solo home run to left field. It's only the second blown save in 21 opportunities for Familia, who still has a 1.39 ERA and a 34/10 K/BB ratio in 32 1/3 innings this season.
Jun 15 - 11:07 PM

Jeurys Familia got four outs to close out the Braves on Sunday for his 19th save as the Mets hung on for a 10-8 win.

Reliever Hansel Robles allowed a two-out single in the eighth inning. Given that the game had been a slugfest, manager Terry Collins wasn't going to risk anything, so he called on Familia to get the final out of the inning. He did just that, then worked around a one-out single in the ninth to finish the ballgame. Familia moves to 19-for-20 in save chances with a 1.16 ERA and a 32/9 K/BB ratio in 31 innings.
Jun 14 - 4:31 PM

Jeurys Familia will remain on the active roster as opposed to going on the paternity leave list.

Mets manager Terry Collins indicated that Familia may not be available on Saturday however. Should a save situation arise on Saturday, it could be Bobby Parnell who gets the call.
Jun 13 - 1:08 PM

Jeurys Familia danced around trouble, but tossed a scoreless ninth inning against the Braves on Friday for his 18th save.

After entering the top of the ninth inning with a two-run lead, Familia got pinch-hitter Todd Cunningham for the first out, but then walked Jace Peterson and gave up a single to Cameron Maybin before walking Freddie Freeman to load the bases. However, he got Nick Markakis to ground into a double play to end the game. Familia is expected to go on the paternity leave list any day now, so Bobby Parnell could get the next save chance this weekend.
Jun 12 - 10:30 PM

Jeurys Familia pitched a perfect ninth inning to record his 17th save of the season during Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Familia came in to protect the handiwork of starter Jacob deGrom and set the Diamondbacks down in order in the ninth on just nine pitches. The closer is now 17-for-18 in save opportunities. He holds a 1.30 ERA and 32/7 K/BB ratio over 27 2/3 innings.
Jun 7 - 7:07 PM

Jeurys Familia is unavailable on Friday after recording a five-out save on Thursday night.

He has done a tremendous job at the back-end of the Mets bullpen this season, recording 16 saves and compiling a 1.35 ERA and 0.83 WHIP over 26 2/3 innings. Carlos Torres could be called upon if a save situation arises on Friday.
Jun 5 - 7:10 PM

Jeurys Familia got five outs to pick up his 15th save, closing out the Mets' 4-3 win against the Marlins on Sunday.

Carlos Torres allowed a one-out base runner in the top of the eighth, so manager Terry Collins brought in Familia to preserve the one-run lead. He was able to get through the eighth and ninth innings, moving to 15-for-16 in save chances with a 1.44 ERA and a 30/6 K/BB ratio in 25 innings.
May 31 - 4:11 PM

Jeurys Familia was unable to convert a save for the first time this season, but the Mets won anyway, taking the Cardinals down in 14 innings on Monday.

Familia allowed back-to-back one-out singles. Jason Heyward then lifted a fly ball to right field to bring in the tying run. It was certainly not an awful pitching performance. Familia is now 13-for-14 in save opportunities with a 1.86 ERA and a 22/4 K/BB ratio in 19 1/3 innings.
May 18 - 11:35 PM

Jeurys Familia couldn't escape a ninth-inning jam on Wednesday, walking in the winning run in a loss to the Cubs.

The Mess wasn't Familia's, as Carlos Torres loaded the bases with no outs before manager Terry Collins called on Familia to work some magic. The right-hander struck out Jorge Soler, creating some light at the end of the tunnel, but issued a walk to Chris Coghlan to force in the winning run. It would have been tough to get out of the situation regardless, so it's hard to blame Familia. He still has terrific stats on the year, leading the league with 13 saves in as many opportunities with a 1.56 ERA and a 21/4 K/BB ratio in 17 1/3 innings.
May 13 - 10:57 PM

Jeurys Familia earned his NL-leading 13th save on Sunday with a scoreless ninth inning as the Mets topped the Phillies 7-4.

Familia allowed a leadoff single to Cesar Hernandez, but got ground outs from Carlos Ruiz and Ben Revere before getting Freddy Galvis to foul out down the left field line to end the game. Who'd have thought Familia would be leading the National League in saves on May 10? He's 13-for-13 thus far with a 1.59 ERA and a 20/3 K/BB ratio in 17 innings.
May 10 - 4:53 PM

Jeurys Familia pitched a scoreless ninth against the Phillies on Saturday, notching his 12th save of the season.

Familia did allow a one-out single to Chase Utley, but Utley never moved off first and Familia managed the last two outs without issue. With the save, he moved to 12-for-12 in save opportunities and he now holds a lovely 1.69 ERA and 0.63 WHIP with a 19/3 K/BB ratio over 16 innings.
