Mets | Jeurys Familia unavailable vs. Phillies

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 13:27:05 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (rest) is unavailable to pitch against the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday, April 15, because he has pitched in three straight games.

Fantasy Tip: With Familia taking the night off, Jerry Blevins and Carlos Torres are the most likely options to close out the game in a save situation. Blevins and Torres should be viewed as desperation adds for the save speculators in cavernous mixed league and NL-only formats.

Mets | Closer role could become fluid for Mets

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 14:10:09 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is the front-runner to close games with RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) headed to the disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins. However, Collins noted he may piece it together and use left-handed RP Jerry Blevins or another southpaw depending on matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Familia is a must-add arm, and for those desperate for saves, Blevins and even Buddy Carlyle -- who recorded the save in the last outing -- could be worth speculative adds. Bobby Parnell (elbow) is also working his way back and is expected to return to the closer role when healthy. All said, the Mets bullpen projects to have all the makings of a committee.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia shut down for 10 days

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 14:02:05 -0700

Updating previous reports, New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow), who was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, April 7, will be shut down for at least 10 days after being diagnosed with posterior elbow inflammation in his right arm. Closing duties in the meantime will likely fall to RP Jeurys Familia. Familia pitched a perfect eighth inning Monday, April 6, and his fastball hit 98 mph.

Fantasy Tip: Familia will be a popular waiver wire acquisition this week for those in need of saves in the early going. Because of the notable injury history for Mejia, Familia's stay in the closer role could be extended.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia lands on DL

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 13:19:41 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, April 7, after having stiffness and pain in his right elbow Monday, April 6. X-rays and an MRI exam came back negative, though, and he received a cortisone injection. His DL stint has been backdated to Sunday, April 5. RP Jeurys Familia is expected to serve as the closer with Mejia out, with RP Carlos Torres as the main setup man.

Fantasy Tip: Saves seekers need to quickly run to the waiver wire to put in a claim on Familia, even if it's for the short term. Mejia has a history of arm problems, and he may struggle upon his return.

Mets | Jeurys Familia leading candidate to close

Tue, 07 Apr 2015 11:58:52 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is the leading candidate to close with RP Jenrry Mejia (elbow) injured, according to manager Terry Collins. RP Buddy Carlyle recorded the save on opening day, but Familia had already appeared in the game.

Fantasy Tip: Even though Mejia doesn't have structural damage in his arm and might avoid a DL stint, Familia should be snagged off the waiver wire in all fantasy leagues just in case. Mejia has a history of arm injuries, including Tommy John surgery, so he might not be out of the woods and is likely to miss at least a few days.

Mets | Jeurys Familia, Vic Black could close

Tue, 17 Feb 2015 14:32:02 -0800

New York Mets RPs Jeurys Familia and Vic Black, along with RP Jenrry Mejia, will be given chances to close out games in spring training, according to manager Terry Collins. RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) is expected to return in May after recovering from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Tip: While Familia and Black could get some play in the ninth inning this spring, Mejia is expected to be the main ninth-inning man when the calendar flips to April, and until Parnell returns. Familia and Black are bullpen arms that should only be considered as dollar investments in NL-only leagues if you're scrounging for saves.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia OK with setting up

Tue, 16 Dec 2014 10:36:26 -0800

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia said he would be fine if he had to set up for RP Bobby Parnell (elbow) in 2015. Manager Terry Collins said the closer job is Parnell's to lose next year, but he's also expected to start the season on the disabled list while he's in the final stages of recovery from Tommy John surgery. RPs Jeurys Familia (hernia) and Mejia are both doing fine, but neither pitcher will take part in winter ball this offseason.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia with a day off

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 13:12:14 -0700

New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (hernia) had the day off Monday, Aug. 11, so RP Jeurys Familia handled the final four outs of the game for the save over the Philadelphia Phillies. Familia allowed an RBI double in the ninth inning before closing out the game. It was his third save of the year and fourth of his career.

Fantasy Tip: With Mejia trying to finish off the final two months of the season while pitching through a hernia, days like this for Familia could become more frequent. We've been telling you to add Familia in leagues where he's still available. At this point, it might be too late.

Mets | Jenrry Mejia hopes to put off surgery

Mon, 11 Aug 2014 08:32:04 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets RP Jenrry Mejia (hernia), who blew the save against the Philadelphia Phillies Sunday, Aug. 10, is hoping to delay surgery on his hernia until after the season. He has known about the issue for weeks, but it didn't become public until after his blown save. Mejia is taking medication to manage the pain. He's given up at least two hits in each of his last four outings, including two losses.

Fantasy Tip: Mejia is treading on shaky ground, and if you're looking for saves and still haven't picked up Jeurys Familia, then you're not doing yourself a favor. The Mets could easily decide to shut Mejia down if he continues to show signs of hitting a wall.
