The New York Mets transferred RHP Jeurys Familia from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list. It’s just a procedural move to open a spot for RHP David Aardsma on the 40-man roster. Familia underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow and is likely out for the season. Original Post Terry Collins told reporters before tonight’s game that Jeurys Familia will likely miss the remainder of this season. “I […]

By slight, […]
