Familia to Continue Tune-Up with Pones on Monday


Current New York Mets closer and former Binghamton Met, Jeurys Familia is scheduled to continue his tune-up in the Minor League system with the Binghamton Rumble Ponies on Monday night at NYSEG Stadium. Binghamton plays the Portland Sea Dogs at 6:35 PM.

Familia, 27, has appeared in 247 games in relief for the Mets across five seasons. In the last two years, the Dominican Republic native has notched a combined 94 saves. In 2016, Familia led the National League with 51 saves and received his first All-Star honor.

His only season as a B-Met came in 2011 when he was a starting pitcher. He went 4-4 with a 3.49 ERA over 17 starts.

Familia was suspended for 15 games to start the season for a domestic violence incident that occurred last October. The right-hander threw a scoreless inning for the St. Lucie Mets (High-A) on Saturday night.

Tickets for Monday’s game can be purchased at any time at the Rumble Ponies’ website (www.bingrp.com). The NYSEG Stadium box office opens at 9 AM on Monday. Fans can also call (607) 722-FUNN starting at 9 AMon Monday to purchase tickets for Monday’s game.

Five days too late in his return to the Mets.

Nights like last night happen. You can not win either way. You pull your starter after seven and your pen does well, you are a genius. You leave the starter in and he gets hammered, you are a schmo.

It is just one game against a team we always seem to find ways to lose to.

Still in first place.

Shake it off and win on Harvey Day.
