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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
