Mets | Jeurys Familia unavailable Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 12:07:47 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (rest) and Jim Henderson (finger) will not be available to the team on Saturday, June 11, against the Milwaukee Brewers. Familia has worked an inning and collected a save in each of the last nights, while Henderson will miss the game as a result of a torn fingernail he suffered in the Mets' victory on Friday, June 10. Manager Terry Collins has told reporters RP Addison Reed will close if a save situation arises.

Fantasy Tip: Familia should be available Sunday to build upon his major-league leading 21 saves, while Henderson may need another day or two after his injury required him to glue the skin back on his fingernail. Henderson can be ignored for fantasy purposes, but owners in leagues that allow daily transactions are advised to bench Familia for Reed today.

Mets | Jeurys Familia perfect in relief

Sat, 30 Apr 2016 22:19:28 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia picked up his eighth save in as many chances Saturday, April 30, in a 6-5 win over the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Familia has been just about perfect on the mound this season, and he should be picked up in any league where available. Familia is also an automatic option in daily leagues where closers are available to play.

Mets | Jeurys Familia unavailable Saturday

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 12:28:20 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia is unavailable to pitch on Saturday, April 16, after having pitched four of the previous five days, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: The Mets have Matt Harvey pitching Saturday, so there is a decent chance Familia may not be needed anyway. Should a save chance arise, Jim Henderson is the odds-on favorite to get the call, making him a reasonable play in daily fantasy.

Mets | Jeurys Familia gets five-out save

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 14:01:53 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia picked up his second save of the season Wednesday, April 13, versus the Miami Marlins. He pitched 1 2/3 shutout innings, surrendering two hits, no walks and striking out one.

Fantasy Tip: Familia allowed an inherited runner to score but other than that, he looked solid here working on the mound for the third straight day. Owners can continue to fire him up with confidence, as he continues to get save opportunities for one of the better teams in the league while striking out about one batter per inning over the long haul.

Mets | Jeurys Familia will pitch if needed

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 13:09:52 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia (illness) is battling an illness, but he will pitch the ninth inning if needed Monday, April 11, according to manager Terry Collins.

Fantasy Tip: Familia saved 63 games last season with a 1.85 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 9.9 K/9, and he already has a save this year. He is a high-end reliever and should remain in your starting lineup Monday and going forward.

Mets | Jeurys Familia blows a save

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 14:57:38 -0700

New York Mets RP Jeurys Familia allowed three runs, including a home run, in a blown save in Grapefruit League play Friday, March 25, after having tossed seven scoreless spring frames before that. Manager Terry Collins suggested that Familia might be feeling the effects of a heavy workload last year (career-high 92 2/3 innings). It was Familia's second time making back-to-back appearances in camp.

Fantasy Tip: This is likely just a minor blip on the radar in an otherwise dominating spring for Familia. His swing-and-miss stuff is elite in the ninth-inning role in New York, and he has no real competition should he falter. He's a low-end No. 1 fantasy stopper once the elite names are off the board.

Wed, 03 Feb 2016 15:59:00 -0800

Mets | Jeurys Familia files for arbitration

Sat, 16 Jan 2016 11:58:24 -0800

New York Mets CL Jeurys Familia has filed for salary arbitration. He is seeking $4.8 million next season while the team has countered with a $3.3 million offer.

Fantasy Tip: Familia went 2-2 with a 1.85 ERA and 43 saves in 76 appearances last season, with 86 strikeouts in 78 innings. He can be streaky at times but should be one of the first closers selected in this spring's fantasy drafts.

Mets | Jeurys Familia, Tyler Clippard unavailable

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 16:06:21 -0700

New York Mets RPs Jeurys Familia and Tyler Clippard are unavailable against the Atlanta Braves Thursday, Sept. 10, because of heavy usage this week. RP Addison Reed could be used in a save situation Thursday as a result.

Fantasy Tip: There's not much to see here. Don't freak out if you own Familia and he isn't in there tonight if a save situation arises. He recorded the save in each of the last three nights in the series sweep of the Washington Nationals, throwing a combined three innings and fanning five.

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.
