Jeurys Familia: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
The flame-throwing righty's ratios fell back from 2015 but his fantasy owners didn't complain as Familia led the majors with 51 saves. He threw 77-plus innings for the third straight season, more than the average closer. The extra frames embellish his near double-digit strikeout rate and give his ratios a little more impact. The only blemish in Familia's skill set is inconsistent control. As an extreme groundball pitcher, he's going to have a high hit rate so he needs a low walk rate to keep his WHIP in check. His home run rate is aided by limited flyballs, which in turn yields a low ERA. To wit, Familia surrendered only one homer last season, with 10 allowed over the past three seasons spanning 233 frames. Familia may not be the first closer off the board or the most expensive, but he's not far off from those options in terms of skills. He will be suspended for the first 15 games after violating Major League Baseball's domestic violence policy.
At the outset of spring training, Familia appeared destined to work as part of the bridge to then-closer Jenrry Mejia. Even Mejia's hold on the job was supposed to be temporary, as Bobby Parnell's eventual return was supposed to provide an experienced option to work the ninth inning for manager Terry Collins. Mejia suffered an elbow injury in early April, which opened the door for Familia, who simply took the job and ran with it all the way through October. With improvement in his strikeout rate (from 22.7% in 2014 to 27.9% in 2015) and walk rate (from 9.9% to 6.2%), along with a continually strong groundball rate (58.3% last season) Familia was one of the league's most effective relievers as he piled up 43 saves in 48 opportunities. He should have plenty of job security to begin 2016, despite a hiccup in Game 1 of the World Series, as there were no significant signs of Familia slowing as the season progressed.
While not quite the prospect that teammate Jenrry Mejia was, Familia definitely came up with his own level of fanfare and he was equally mishandled by the Mets. Despite plenty of strong numbers in the minors, he was clearly unrefined in 2012 and didnít really deserve his September cup of coffee. And there was certainly no reason to then have him break camp with the club in 2013. An elbow surgery eventually limited him to just nine innings at three minor league levels by seasonís end. Despite essentially a lost season, Familia had a surprise breakthrough in 2014, sticking with the club all year and grabbing a hold of the eighth inning role by seasonís end. Mid-90s heat and a devastating slider make him hell on righties (.377 OPS), but heís still got work to do against lefties (.821). If he can figure out southpaws, his strikeout rate will likely jump above the 25.0% mark, making him valuable as a deep league or NL-only commodity even without the benefit of logging saves.
Familia opened 2013 with the Mets, but bounced between the minors and the big leagues before being shut down due to biceps tendinitis. He suffered a setback in rehab, requiring surgery in early June to remove bone spurs and loose bodies. The surgery nearly ended his season, but Familia made it back for one game in September before he was sent to the Arizona Fall League. A hard-throwing righty, Familia works primarily with a 94-97 mph fastball and sinker, as well as a slider and changeup. Familia should enter spring training with a shot to earn a spot in the team's bullpen.
The debate about Familia's future role - starter or reliever - continues to rage on, with his 2012 performance doing little to answer it. Familia, who has a mid-90s fastball, mid-80s breaking pitch and work-in-progress changeup, struggled as a starter until a midseason tweak to make his setup and delivery quicker that seemed to make a big difference. During that rough patch, his control deserted him and he ended up with a 128:73 K:BB ratio in 137 innings. Familia will open spring training as a reliever, and if he fails to make the squad, he likely will work as a starter for Triple-A Las Vegas.
Signed by the Mets as a non-drafted free agent on July 13, 2007.
