Jeurys Familia told Mike Puma of the NY Post that he has been bothered by tendinitis in his right elbow and was unavailable to pitch last night in the Mets’ 3-2 victory over the Pirates at Citi Field.
Asked if he was concerned about the situation, Familia shrugged. ”I’ll be OK in a couple of days. I want to play,” he said.
Manager Terry Collins said he was aware of Familia’s condition before the game.
No word if the Mets will have Familia get a precautionary MRI or if he was examined by team doctors. It’s also uncertain how long Familia will be sidelined and unavailable.
Familia said the soreness began on Wednesday, when he pitched one inning against the White Sox and allowed a run.
