Mets Minors: Jeurys Familia Placed on the Disabled List
According to Michael Diaz of Mets Minor League Blog, Mets pitching prospect Jeurys Familia was placed on the Disabled list retroactive to July 14 with a right shoulder impingement.
The move was “precautionary” according to B-Mets pitching coach Marc Valdes, and there is no timetable for his return.
After six starts for Single-A Port St. Lucie in which he posted a 1.49 ERA, Familia was promoted to Double-A Binghamton where he made ten starts and posted a 3.38 ERA in 57 innings pitched.
Familia is a power pitcher who frequently hits 97-98 mph on the radar gun, but stays mostly around 95-96 mph. Most scouts believe he is a changeup away from being a successful starting pitcher in the major leagues, while others view him as a power reliever.
Lets hope it won’t be long until Familia gets back on the mound for Bingo and back on the fast track to the majors.
