Jeurys Familia had a tough time warming up on Tuesday night, Terry Collins said on Wednesday. The manager said he will not use him in Wednesday’s game.
Collins said that Familia had the night off on Monday, too, due to a minor velocity dip in recent games.
Collins said that Familia, whose fastball has averaged a tick above 96 MPH in 2014 and who touches 97 and 98 MPH at times, was sitting around 94 MPH during his appearance on Sunday.
Prior to his appearance on Sunday, Familia threw 45 pitches during his 1 2/3 innings of work on Friday and the Mets were concerned that he might be a bit tired.
