Mets | Jeurys Familia earns save Friday

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 17:38:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia recorded his 30th save of the season against the Tampa Bay Rays Friday, Aug. 7. He allowed one hit and struck out one batter in one scoreless inning of work.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has struggled since the All-Star break, recording just three saves in six opportunities while going 0-1 with a 5.23 ERA in 10 contests. However, he does not appear to be in danger of losing his job as the Mets' closer.

Mets | Jeurys Familia throws perfect inning

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:51:25 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia threw a perfect ninth inning Saturday, Aug. 1, to pick up his 28th save of the season, against the Washington Nationals.

Fantasy Tip: Familia had been struggling of late, blowing his past three save opportunities. Familia continues to receive the confidence of his manager, and he should continue to hold onto the closer's role.

Mets | Jeurys Familia blows save

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 18:37:49 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia blew his fifth save of the season, allowing three runs on three hits in an 8-7 loss to the San Diego Padres Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Familia may deserve a bit of a pass for this one. He recorded the first two outs of the inning, but he was then forced to sit for 44 minutes because of a rain delay, and he was lit up when play resumed. Still, he has now blown three straight save chances, and the recently acquired Tyler Clippard could start to steal away some saves opportunities any day now.

Mets | Jeurys Familia remains closer

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 15:47:32 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain in the closer role, per manager Terry Collins Thursday, July 30. Familia has blown all three of his save attempts since the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Familia's ERA remains at just 1.70, and he does have 27 saves for the season. It's a rough patch for a guy who had previously been nearly untouchable, but his leash can't be much longer with Tyler Clippard now nipping at his heals.

Mets | Tyler Clippard to work as setup man

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 17:44:57 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets RP Tyler Clippard is expected to work as a setup man for CL Jeurys Familia, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Clippard was acquired from the Oakland Athletics Monday, but he is not expected to close in Queens like he was previously doing in Oakland. His fantasy value in standard leagues takes a hit as a result, although he is a solid addition in NL-only rotisserie formats for help in the ERA and WHIP categories. He can also be a boon to fantasy owners in leagues which offer holds as a category.

Mets | Jeurys Familia sticking as closer

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:51:12 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia will remain as the team's closer after the acquisition of RP Tyler Clippard from the Oakland Athletics Monday, July 27, according to a source. Clippard will serve as the setup man.

Fantasy Tip: Despite blowing his first two save chances in the second half, Familia still owns a 1.70 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 27 saves this year, so he's earned plenty of rope in the Mets bullpen. Clippard obviously will lose significant value with this move, but he still has value to his owners in deeper leagues in a setup role, and he could see the occasional save chance, especially if Familia continues to struggle in the second half.

Mets | Jeurys Familia struggling

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 09:13:12 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia has blown both of his save opportunities since the All-Star break, and his blown save against the Los Angeles Dodgers Sunday, July 26, was his fourth blown save in 31 chances in 2015. It was the first time he had allowed multiple runs in an outing since last September. Familia insists that he is not tired.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has given up three earned runs in 4 1/3 innings so far in the second half. Based on what he did in the first half of the season, though, he still has plenty of rope as the team's closer. However, Bobby Parnell or Jenrry Mejia could see some opportunities if Familia continues to struggle down the stretch.

Mets | Jeurys Familia has great first half

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 10:16:40 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia was a solid closer for the team in the first half of the season, converting 27 of his 29 save chances and recording a 1.25 ERA and 0.90 WHIP.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has earned himself plenty of rope in the second half of the season, even with Bobby Parnell pitching well in a setup role and Jenrry Mejia back from an 80-game suspension.

Mets | Jeurys Familia returns for save

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 16:41:05 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) reported no issues with his left groin after making his first relief appearance in six days Thursday, June 25, against the Milwaukee Brewers. Familia threw a perfect ninth inning and struck out one to convert his 20th save in 22 chances this year.

Fantasy Tip: Familia appears to be just fine, but you may want to keep Bobby Parnell within arm's reach or handcuff the two if at all possible in the event that Familia's groin injury returns.

Mets | Jeurys Familia ready to return

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 14:07:59 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) said he is good to return to the closing role Tuesday, June 23, after throwing before the game.

Fantasy Tip: Familia sat out this weekend with a sore groin. With Familia still not out of the woods yet, Bobby Parnell is worth owning in all leagues if you're scrounging for saves avenues.
