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.
Apr 21 - 11:25 PM

Mets activated RHP Jeurys Familia from the restricted list.

He's finished serving a 15-game suspension for violating the league's domestic violence policy. David Wright was transferred to the 60-day DL to make room for Familia on the 40-man roster. The right-hander worked two perfect innings during a brief minor league rehab assignment. The Mets have said they'll ease Familia in, but it won't be long until he's back pitching the ninth inning. When that happens, interim closer Addison Reed will transition into a setup role.
Apr 20 - 4:22 PM

Jeurys Familia pitched a perfect inning with a strikeout Monday with Double-A Binghamton.

It was his final tune-up outing before he returns from his 15-game suspension on Thursday. Familia might get eased back into things in non-save situations before returning to the closer role. Addison Reed will then slide back into a set-up role. Familia's suspension was a result of an arrest for a domestic violence incident with his wife, Bianca Rivas, in October. Charges were dropped in December after his wife declined to pursue the case.
Apr 18 - 10:06 AM

Jeurys Familia will pitch for Double-A Binghamton on Monday.

It will be his second and final appearance in the minors before returning from his suspension on Thursday. Familia threw eight pitches in a 1-2-3 ninth inning Saturday with High-A St. Lucie and was reportedly sitting in the 96-97 mph range. The Mets have considered easing Familia into his closer gig with one or two appearances in non-closing situations.
Apr 17 - 8:53 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday that Jeurys Familia could make an appearance or two in a non-closing situation before getting his job back.

Familia is due to return from suspension on Thursday, but it sounds like Addison Reed could be used in the ninth inning for a bit after that. It might be wise for fantasy owners to keep Familia benched for one more week.
