Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports that the Mets are making progress toward acquiring another reliever.
While there's no guarantee that a deal gets done, Rubin notes that the talks are substantive and tangible. With Bobby Parnell on the disabled list and Jenrry Mejia suspended, the Mets could use another solid arm in the late innings, even after the addition of Tyler Clippard at the trade deadline.

Jeurys Familia recorded the final four outs of Tuesday's 6-5 victory against the Phillies, securing his 34th save.

Familia got Carlos Ruiz to ground out with runners on first and second and two outs in the eighth inning. In the ninth, he struck out Aaron Altherr and Cesar Hernandez before getting Freddy Galvis to ground out to end the game. Familia is now 34-for-39 in save situations with a 1.75 ERA and a 63/15 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings.

Jeurys Familia escaped with his 33rd save as the Mets defeated the Orioles 5-3 on Tuesday.

The Mets entered the bottom of the ninth ahead 5-1, but Tyler Clippard allowed a one-out walk followed by a single before giving way to Familia. Familia got the second out on a strikeout, but allowed an infield single followed by back-to-back bases-loaded walks to force in two runs. Mercifully, he got Manny Machado to ground out to end the game. Both runs were charged to Clippard. Familia is 33-for-38 in save chances with a 1.85 ERA and a 59/15 K/BB ratio in 58 1/3 innings.
Aug 18 - 11:05 PM

Jeurys Familia struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning, earning his 31st save in Monday's 4-2 victory over the Rockies.

Familia needed only 11 pitches, getting Carlos Gonzalez to line out before striking out Nolan Arenado and Ben Paulsen consecutively to end the game. August has been much kinder to the Mets' closer following an ugly July, as he's held the opposition scoreless in five appearances to begin the month. Familia is 31-for-36 in save chances overall with a 1.98 ERA and a 55/13 K/BB ratio in 54 2/3 innings.
Aug 10 - 9:51 PM

Jeurys Familia rescued the Mets from a collapse, recording the final out of Wednesday's 8-6 win against the Marlins.

The Mets entered the bottom of the ninth with an 8-0 lead, but relievers Eric O'Flaherty and Hansel Robles couldn't put the Fish to sleep, allowing five combined runs. Familia came in and allowed an inherited runner to score, followed by an infield single, but was able to get Christian Yelich to ground out to end the game. Familia is now 29-for-34 in save chances with a 2.05 ERA and a 52/13 K/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings.
Aug 5 - 10:30 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins expects Jeurys Familia to be available on Sunday.

The All-Star right-hander has worked three days in a row, but it looks to be all hands on deck for a division showdown against the Nationals. He'll throw before the game to test his arm, and if he is unable to go, Tyler Clippard would close for the Mets.
Aug 2 - 5:28 PM

Newsday's Marc Carig was told by a Mets source that Jeurys Familia will remain the team's closer following the acquisition of Tyler Clippard.

Familia has blown both of his save chances since the All-Star break, but he's been fantastic for pretty much the entire season and deserves to keep his job. Clippard will be used in the eighth inning but does offer some protection for the ninth should Familia stumble some more.
Jul 27 - 7:25 PM

Jeurys Familia forked over two runs in the ninth inning to blow a save opportunity, but the Mets were still able to defeat the Dodgers in 10 innings on Sunday.

Familia allowed back-to-back one-out doubles to Adrian Gonzalez and Justin Turner to bring in one run, then allowed a game-tying RBI single to Yasmani Grandal to tie the game. He was able to escape the inning by striking out Yasiel Puig and getting Andre Ethier to ground out. Familia has blown each of his last two save chances but is 27-for-31 overall with a 1.70 ERA and a 49/13 K/BB ratio over 47 2/3 innings.
Jul 26 - 4:44 PM

Jeurys Familia pitched a scoreless ninth inning to grab his 27th save in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks.

Familia issued a one-out walk to Welington Castillo, but got Jake Lamb and David Peralta each to fly out to end the game. Though not quite an All-Star, the right-hander heads into the All-Star break with terrific first-half numbers, saving the game in 27 of 29 chances with a 1.25 ERA and a 43/13 K/BB ratio in 43 1/3 innings.
Jul 12 - 4:13 PM

Jeurys Familia allowed a run on two hits in the ninth inning Friday against the Diamondbacks, but managed to hold on for his 25th save of the season.

Things could have been more interesting Nick Ahmed ran out of the box on the final play of the ballgame. Familia missed a pop-up, but Daniel Murphy was able to throw Ahmed out easily to lock down the win. While Familia finished last in the "Final Vote" for the National League, his statistics are certainly worthy of him going to Cincinnati. The 25-year-old has a 1.31 ERA and 42/12 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings.
Jul 10 - 10:21 PM

Jeurys Familia nailed down his 24th save of the season Wednesday afternoon against the Giants.

Familia was called on in the bottom of the ninth inning after Bobby Parnell gave up two hits and a run. Familia yielded a two-out single to Brandon Belt but induced a groundout from Andrew Susac to end it. The right-hander has an outstanding 1.12 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, and 41/12 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings this season for the Mets.
Jul 8 - 6:31 PM

Jeurys Familia worked a 1-2-3 ninth inning to snag his 23rd save as the Mets beat the Giants 3-0 on Monday.

There was some hard contact, but the Mets gloves were in the right spot for line drives from Matt Duffy and Buster Posey. Familia then struck out Angel Pagan to end the ballgame. A National League finalist for the Final Vote for the 2015 All-Star Game, the right-hander has saved 23 games in 25 chances with a 1.13 ERA and a 41/12 K/BB ratio in 39 2/3 innings.
Jul 7 - 12:43 AM

Jeurys Familia tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning Friday against the Reds for his 21st save of the season.

Familia has now turned in back-to-back scoreless outings since his recent groin issue. The 25-year-old has been fantastic out of the closer role for New York, posting a 1.30 ERA and 36/10 K/BB ratio over 34 2/3 innings. He has a strong case to make his first All-Star team.
Jun 26 - 9:43 PM

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.
Jun 25 - 5:11 PM

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.
