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.

Mets | Jeurys Familia out for weekend

Sat, 20 Jun 2015 14:51:55 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (groin) will miss the rest of the weekend after a left groin issue surfaced on his final two pitches in the eighth inning Friday, June 19. He tested it Saturday, June 20, and has been prescribed anti-inflammatory medication but has not undergone an MRI. Familia does not believe he will land on the disabled list. RP Bobby Parnell will likely fill in at closer in the interim.

Fantasy Tip: Parnell should be picked up if you're save speculating. There's even a small chance he retains the role. However, his lengthy injury history doesn't give that theory much weight.

Mets | Bobby Parnell could close temporarily

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:17:10 -0700

New York Mets RP Bobby Parnell could close games temporarily with RP Jeurys Familia expected to go on the paternity list soon.

Fantasy Tip: Don't go blowing all of your FAAB money on Parnell if you're looking for saves. Familia has done nothing to lose the ninth-inning duties and will return to the role all by himself after his child is born. However, if you're desperate for saves, Parnell could be worth the very temporary pickup, just don't spend much at all.

Mets | Jeurys Familia not expected to pitch

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 15:58:17 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia likely will not be available to pitch Friday, June 5, because he had a five-out save Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Familia should be able to pitch again in a day or two but needs time to rest his arm. Alex Torres could be called on to close the game Friday if it is needed but is not a fantasy option in most leagues.

Mets | Jeurys Familia blows first save

Mon, 18 May 2015 18:51:35 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia blew his first save of the season Monday, May 18, against the St. Louis Cardinals. Familia was a perfect nine for nine in save situations before he allowed the game-tying run in the top of the ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has earned himself a long leash with his performance so far this season. Season-long owners should ignore this outing and continue to roll Familia into their lineups.
