2014 Mets Top Prospects: No.14. Jeurys Familia, RHP

14. Jeurys Familia Height: 6’4” Weight: 230 lbs. Age: 24 Bats/Throws: Right/Right Jeurys Familia probably has the highest ceiling of any true reliever in the Mets system. His fastball is unequivocally electric as it consistently sits in the mid 90’s and has recently been clocked at triple digits. You might be saying okay, what’s the […]
