Mets RHP Jeurys Familia has let up four runs in five innings, while striking out seven batters and walking three, in four relief appearances during the Arizona Fall League this month.
Control problems are very much still an issue, but other than the one home run he’s allowed, Familia has been getting grounders by the bushel. Oh, and he’s throwing 93-97 mph with a lot of 94-96. His slider is 81-86 mph. Familia has walked 18 batters in 23 MLB innings the last two years. If he can learn to throw strikes, he will be a very good MLB reliever.
