Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Signs with Oakland
Familia agreed Saturday with the Athletics on a one-year contracdt, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Familia was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday despite allowing just one run on four hits in 6.2 innings of work this spring. He's found himself a new home just one day later, joining a bullpen in which any competent reliever seemingly has a shot at saves. Familia has 125 career saves to his name, but just one of those has come in the last four seasons. He owns a 4.96 ERA over those four years and slipped all the way to a 6.09 ERA last season, so he'll need a bounce-back season to deserve high-leverage consideration even in Oakland.... See More ...

Jeurys Familia: Released by Diamondbacks
Familia was released by the Diamondbacks on Friday, Nick Piecoro of The Arizona Republic reports.
Familia has permitted just one run over six innings this spring but was told he was not going to make the Opening Day roster. The 33-year-old shouldn't have trouble finding a job elsewhere, although he might have to go to the minors first.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jeurys Familia: Makes fifth spring appearance
Familia allowed one run on one hit over two-thirds of an inning in Saturday's spring game against the Angels.
Familia's fastball lived in the 94-96 mph range, and he got a pair of outs around a solo home run by Mickey Moniak on a 2-0 heater that caught too much of the plate, per Jack Magruder of MLB.com. The Diamondbacks are re-working a bullpen that had a 4.58 ERA and 55 percent save conversion rate in 2022. Part of the changes were adding Familia and Miguel Castro, a pair of power arms that Arizona lacked. The 33-year-old Familia is a non-roster invitee after pitching to a 6.09 ERA over 44.1 innings for Boston and Philadelphia in 2022.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Jeurys Familia: Signs minor-league contract
Familia signed a minor-league contract with the Diamondbacks on Wednesday with an invitation to spring training, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.
Familia will look to carve out a spot in the Diamondbacks' bullpen ahead of Opening Day. The 33-year-old right-hander struggled to a 6.09 ERA and 1.81 WHIP in 44.1 innings last season between the Phillies and Red Sox, though he did show pretty well during his final year with the Mets in 2021. He's sitting on 125 career saves but has added to that total only once since the end of the 2018 campaign.... See More ... See Less
Jeurys Familia: Elects free agency
Familia elected free agency Friday after clearing waivers.
Familia was designated for assignment by Boston on Tuesday and will choose to test free agency rather than accepting an outright assignment to Triple-A Worcester. The right-hander has struggled over 48 relief appearances between the Phillies and Red Sox this year, posting a 6.09 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 44.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jeurys Familia: DFA'd after loss
Familia (2-3) was designated for assignment after being charged with the loss Tuesday against the Yankees, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports. The right-hander gave up three runs (two earned) on one hit with three walks and zero strikeouts.
The 32-year-old issued a walk to the first batter he faced in the 10th inning and quickly induced a double-play groundball, but he followed with two more walks (one intentional) before Gleyber Torres delivered a bases-loaded double. Familia was added to Boston's big-league roster in mid-August and appeared in 10 games over the past month, but he's now been jettisoned from the 40-man roster after he allowed seven earned runs in 10.1 frames....

Red Sox's Jeurys Familia: Blows lead, takes loss
Familia (2-2) took the loss Monday against Tampa Bay, allowing two runs on one hit and a hit batsman over one-third of an inning.
Familia started the seventh inning with Boston holding a 3-2 lead and left after 10 pitches (four strikes) with the game tied and a runner on second base. Zack Kelly couldn't prevent the inherited runner from scoring and completed the team's 29th bullpen loss (fifth most in MLB). The 32-year-old Familia has a 5.82 ERA combined between the Phillies and Red Sox (4.82 for Boston), and he's pitching for a team whose chances of making the playoffs dropped to 0.9%, per FanGraphs. It seems the organization might benefit more from bringing up a minor leaguer over letting the veteran finish out the season.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jeurys Familia: Makes Boston debut
Familia allowed a run on three hits while striking out one over one inning in Wednesday's 8-3 win over the Pirates.
Familia made his Red Sox debut in a low-leverage spot. Boston was leading 8-2 entering the bottom of the ninth when Familia entered the contest.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jeurys Familia: Joins active roster
Familia's contract was selected by the Red Sox on Saturday.
Familia was released by the Phillies last Saturday, but he didn't have to wait long to get back to the big leagues. He signed a minor-league deal with the Red Sox on Tuesday and will be a part of the big-league bullpen just four days later. Whether or not he'll be particularly useful to his new club is unclear, as he struggled to a 6.09 ERA during his time in Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Red Sox's Jeurys Familia: Finds work with Red Sox
Familia signed a minor-league contract with the Red Sox on Tuesday, Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette reports.
Familia was released by the Phillies on Saturday, and it did not take him long to find a new home. Familia had a rough go of it over 38 appearances out of Philadelphia's bullpen, but if he can get back on track with Triple-A Worcester, he could get another shot in the big leagues before the campaign comes to a close....

Jeurys Familia: Hits open market
Familia was released by the Phillies on Saturday, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander couldn't get going with Philadelphia at any point and the team designated him for assignment earlier in the week. No club was willing to take him off waivers given what he's making this season, but Familia has a decade of big-league experience and was a serviceable reliever as recently as last season, so another team may look to bring him in at the minimum....

Phillies' Jeurys Familia: Loses roster spot
Familia was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Tuesday, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.
Familia signed a $6 million deal over the winter, but his Phillies tenure will come to an inglorious end after 34 poor innings. He carried a respectable 3.32 ERA through his first 24 appearances, but a brutal seven-week stretch in which he posted a 10.95 ERA means he'll leave the roster with a 6.09 ERA to his name. Familia never earned a save for the Phillies, so his departure is unlikely to alter the ninth-inning picture in Philadelphia.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Jeurys Familia: Agrees to deal with Phillies
Familia signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Phillies on Saturday, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.
Familia has 125 career saves and could potentially enter the ninth-inning mix in Philadelphia, though he'll likely open the year below Corey Knebel on the depth chart. Familia hasn't been closer material over the past few seasons, but he did produce a respectable 3.94 ERA last season, with his 27.5 percent strikeout rate and 51.0 percent groundball rate helping offset a 10.3 percent walk rate....

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Serves up game-winning homer
Familia (6-3) took the loss Friday as the Mets fell 6-5 to the Dodgers in 10 innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk in one inning without striking out a batter.
With the score tied 4-4, Familia entered the game to begin the 10th inning and promptly served up a leadoff homer to Will Smith, bringing home the phantom runner as well. To run salt in the wound, the Mets were able to get one run across against Kenley Jansen in the bottom of the 10th. Familia is having a rough August, posting a 7.50 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 5:3 K:BB through six innings across seven appearances, and his high-leverage opportunities will dry up down the stretch if he can't turn things around....

Mets' Jeurys Familia: Collects win Sunday
Familia (5-1) allowed three hits and struck out one in two scoreless innings to earn the win Sunday versus Pittsburgh.
After starter Taijuan Walker managed to record only one out, the Mets turned to a de facto bullpen game. Familia worked the seventh and eighth innings, and he became the pitcher of record when the Mets took the lead in the top of the ninth. The right-hander had allowed three runs across 2.1 innings in his last two appearances, so it was encouraging to see him put together a strong outing. For the season, he's posted a 3.68 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 32:16 K:BB through 29.1 innings while adding five holds, a save and two blown saves.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jeurys Familia: Activated from injured list
Familia (hip) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday.
The right-hander will rejoin the active roster after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf with a right hip impingement. Familia has a 3.63 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 24:15 K:BB over 22.1 innings with five holds and one save in 24 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jeurys Familia: Expected back during next series
Familia (hip) is expected to be activated from the injured list during the upcoming weekend series against the Yankees, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.
Familia has been on the 10-day IL since June 21 with a right hip impingement. He pitched a perfect inning during his rehab appearance with Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, and it sounds like he could rejoin the Mets' bullpen as soon as Friday in the Bronx. The right-hander posted a 3.63 ERA and 1.75 WHIP while fanning 24 batters across 22.1 innings prior to the injury.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jeurys Familia: Cleared for rehab assignment
Familia (hip) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse on Tuesday, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.
Familia is eligible to return from the 10-day injured list Thursday, so the Mets may have him make only one appearance for Syracuse before activating him. The right-hander was tagged for five earned runs in 3.1 innings over his final three appearances prior to landing on the IL, but he excelled in a setup role before that. Over his first 21 relief outings, Familia compiled a 1.89 ERA, five holds, two wins and one save.... See More ... See Less
Mets' Jeurys Familia: Should return when eligible
Familia (hip) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list when first eligible Thursday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.
The veteran right-hander landed on the shelf with a right hip impingement June 21, but he's progressed well in his recovery and is only expected to be sidelined for the 10-day minimum. Familia surrendered five runs on five hits and four walks with four strikeouts in his last 3.1 frames before moving to the injured list.... See More ... See Less
