Jeurys Familia Promoted To Binghamton

An article by posted on May 9, 2011

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.
