  • Jeurys Familia: On open market

    Familia was released by the Athletics on May 6.

    Familia was designated for assignment by Oakland in early May and was cut loose by the organization a couple days later. The 33-year-old recorded two saves and one hold in 14 appearances with a 6.39 ERA, 2.05 WHIP and 9:13 K:BB over 12.2 innings.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Designated for assignment

    Familia was designated for assignment by the Athletics on Thursday.

    Familia actually leads the A's with two saves this season, but he also has a 6.39 ERA and hideous 9:13 K:BB over 12.2 innings. The veteran reliever will undoubtedly clear waivers and is probably looking at a minor-league deal for his next contract.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Blows save Saturday

    Familia (0-1) took the loss and blew the save against the Reds on Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits and two walks over one inning. He struck out two.

    Familia was handed the ball with Oakland clinging to a one-run lead in the ninth inning, but he couldn't get the job done. The right-hander allowed three of the first five batters he faced to reach base -- two by walk -- and saw the lead disappear when Jake Fraley tagged him for a two-out, two-run double. Familia had notched a save in two of his previous three outings coming into Saturday, so he's likely still going to see chances to close. However, he's posted a poor 6.57 ERA and 8:12 K:BB on the campaign, and given that the A's have started with an ugly 5-28 record, Familia is likely the least desirable closer in the game for fantasy purposes.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Escapes with save

    Familia allowed two runs (one earned) on two hits and a walk in one inning against the Angels on Monday. He struck out one and earned a save.

    Familia was brought in to protect a three-run lead in the 10th inning and narrowly made it out. He served up a two-run homer to Brandon Drury but eventually retired Mike Trout with two runners on base to finish off the 11-10 win. Familia has converted two of his three save chances this season while posting a 5.73 ERA across 11 innings.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Notches first save

    Familia earned a save over Texas on Friday while walking one batter in a scoreless inning.

    Familia worked around a leadoff walk to close out the 5-4 victory. It was his first save of the season and his first opportunity since April 12. His third straight scoreless outing lowered his season ERA to 5.40 with a 4:8 K:BB through 10 innings.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: In the mix for saves

    Familia, Trevor May and Dany Jimenez could all be used in closer situations this season, Athletics manager Mark Kotsay told Matt Kawahara of the San Francisco Chronicle on Sunday.

    Familia was just added to the roster by the A's over the weekend after being cut loose by the Diamondbacks. The 33-year-old has the most closing experience of the three, although he hasn't been a regular closer for a few years and is coming off a season which saw him post a 6.09 ERA. Familia is probably best left on the waiver wire in most leagues.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Makes A's debut Sunday

    Familia allowed an unearned run on two hits over one inning in the Athletics' 9-5 Bay Bridge Series exhibition loss to the Giants on Sunday. He struck out two.

    The veteran reliever just signed Saturday and was put right to work, with Familia throwing 22 pitches overall in his Athletics debut. The 33-year-old should be in line for a solid workload to open the regular season considering his experience, but it's unlikely he logs any save chances unless multiple injuries strike the high-leverage options in front of him.

  • Athletics' Jeurys Familia: Signs with Oakland

    Familia agreed Saturday with the Athletics on a one-year contract, Robert Murray of 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
