Jeurys Familia Promoted To Binghamton
After Saturday’s game and during the post game show on SNY, the Mets announced that RHP Jeurys Familia has been promoted from High-A St. Lucie up to Double-A Binghamton.
Familia was off to a great start at St. Lucie and had a 1-1 record with a 1.49 ERA in six starts. He racked up 36 strikeouts against eight walks in 36 innings pitched.
The 21-year old right-hander was a surprising choice, but deserving nonetheless. His teammate and Mets 2010 draft pick Matt Harvey was having a dominant season as well and could be the next one to get bumped.
Harvey, 22, is 4-1 with a 1.10 ERA in six starts with 39 strikeouts and 11 walks in 32.2 innings pitched.
