Jeurys Familia took a loss after a bases-loaded HBP on his 51st pitch in relief Friday against the Angels.
Really, it was his 43rd pitch; eight of the previous ones had been to intentionally walk the bases loaded after Raul Ibanez reached third with one out in the 11th. That spelled Familia's doom when he hit Hank Conger with a 2-2 offering, ending the game. Familia had already pitched two scoreless innings, throwing 31 pitches, before being asked to work the 11th. It proved to be too much, as Terry Collins really should have guessed ahead of time. Apr 12 - 2:29 AM

Jeurys Familia tossed a scoreless inning Monday in his first appearance in the Arizona Fall League.

Familia required surgery in June to remove a bone spur and loose bodies from his right elbow, so he only logged 19 2/3 innings between the majors and minors this season. The 24-year-old is expected to participate in winter ball in the Dominican Republic this offseason and should have a chance to crack the Mets' bullpen next season.

Jeurys Familia plans to participate in winter ball in the Dominican Republic this offseason, in an effort to make up for lost time due to injury this season.

The 23-year-old hurler underwent elbow surgery earlier in the year to remove a bone spur and loose bodies, but worked hard to return to the Mets before the end of the season. He's unlikely to be used during Saturday's doubleheader, after working each of the last two days on his rehab assignment at Single-A Savannah.

Mets activated RHP Jeurys Familia from the 60-day disabled list.

He will be active and in uniform for Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins. Familia had been sidelined since May 12 after undergoing surgery to remove bone spurs from his right elbow. The 23-year-old has spent the last week on a rehab assignment with Single-A Savannah.

Jeurys Familia (elbow) began a rehab assignment with Single-A Savannah on Monday.

Familia, on the disabled list since May 12 due to elbow surgery, hopes to return to the Mets later this month. It's more likely that the 23-year-old right-hander sets up shop in New York's bullpen next season.

Jeurys Familia (elbow) could be cleared for a rehab assignment Monday.

Familia, on the disabled list since May 12 due to elbow surgery, was cleared after throwing a 30-pitch bullpen session Friday without any issues. The Mets are hoping he can return in September.

Jeurys Familia (elbow) has begun throwing in Port St. Lucie, Florida.

Familia underwent surgery last month to remove bone spurs from his right elbow. He's probably a long shot to pitch for the Mets again before the end of the season.
Wed, Jul 24, 2013 03:36:00 PM

Mets transferred RHP Jeurys Familia from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

It's just a procedural move to open a spot on the 40-man roster. Familia underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow and likely won't factor into the Mets' bullpen again until 2014.
Sat, Jun 8, 2013 10:27:00 AM

Mets manager Terry Collins doesn't expect Jeurys Familia (elbow) to return this season.

"I don’t think we’ll have him this year," Collins said. Familia underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow. The club hasn't revealed a specific timetable for the youngster, but it sounds like he won't factor into the Mets' bullpen again until 2014.

Jeurys Familia will have surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs and loose bodies from his right elbow.

Familia was examined on Tuesday in New York by the Mets' medical staff and the procedure was recommended. The 23-year-old right-hander will be out indefinitely.
Tue, Jun 4, 2013 05:27:00 PM

Jeurys Familia (biceps) will travel to New York to be examined by team doctors.

Familia has been sidelined since May 12 with right biceps tendinitis. He recently made a pair of rehab appearances with High-A St. Lucie before suffering a setback. While he's not in pain at the moment, he is unable to fully extend his arm in his delivery. There should be more clarity on his status after the doctor visit.

Jeurys Familia (biceps) has experienced a setback in his rehab.

Familia made two rehab appearances with High-A St. Lucie in the past week, but had a "flare up" with his arm. The Mets were hoping he would be ready to return as soon as this weekend, but his rehab is on hold for now.
Fri, May 31, 2013 04:11:00 PM

Jeurys Familia (biceps) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with High-A St. Lucie.

If all goes well, Familia should quickly move up to Triple-A Las Vegas. He should get another chance in the major league bullpen before long. The 23-year-old right-hander has been sidelined since May 8 with right biceps tendinitis.
Fri, May 24, 2013 04:16:00 PM

Mets placed RHP Jeurys Familia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 9, with right biceps tendinitis.

Familia's velocity has been down of late, and the Mets figured out that it's because his bicep is a tad sore. It's not clear at this point how long he'll be out. Greg Burke has taken his spot in the bullpen.
Sun, May 12, 2013 10:18:00 AM

Jeurys Familia is unavailable Friday due to right biceps tendinitis.

Familia's velocity was down from 96 mph to 92 mph during his most recent appearance, so the Mets think it brought on by fatigue. Consider him day-to-day for now, but the Mets could play it safe and place him on the disabled list. Frank Francisco (elbow) is the most likely candidate to replace him on the active roster.
