The Mets Place Right-Handed Jeurys Familia on the 10-Day Injury List Due to a Shoulder Injury, the team told reporters today ( Twitter left via Anthony Rieber of Newsday and Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News). Familia has already had an injection in his sick shoulder. In its place in the active squad, the Mets will select the left-handed agreement Ryan O'Rourke . New York has an open 40-man seat, so an additional appropriate step is not required.
Via MLB.com's Anthony DiComo ( Twitter link ), Familia warned the Mets on the discomfort in his shoulder this morning. He was then subjected to an MRI that revealed a Bennett lesion / bone spur.
There is currently no exact timetable for his return to the club, though the illness may explain the rough start of the season for the 29-year-old. In 14 1/3 innings, Familia was marked for 11 runs (10 earned) with 16 hits and 13 sky-high walks against 15 rashes. His average fastball of 95.5 mph is a career low and 0.7 mph from last season, and the extreme difficulty of throwing the punches is also inappropriate for righties. In the last half decade before 2019, Familia counted on average 3.4 steps per nine innings.
Familia signed the second largest contract of any deleverage in this off-season at the age of three, with a total of $ 30 million the launch he had envisioned. With him on the shelf for an indefinite period of time, it is obvious that Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman are charged to serve as primary right-handed armors closer Edwin Diaz . Gsellman leads Mets Relievers with 18 2/3 innings, though Mets' rigorous use of the reliefs could put him in a tighter eighth inning role.
The 31-year-old O & Rourke will return to the US majors for the first time since the 2016 season. The Southpaw was looking for 47 innings in 2015 with the Twins, but Tommy John's operation put out his 2017 season and much of his 2018 Campaign. O'Rourke was in the Orioles organization last year but was only able to throw 14 1/3 innings of minors' rehab work until the end of the season. He landed with the Mets for a small league deal early in the offseason.
So far, O Rourke in Syracuse has achieved an ERA of 4.61 with a ratio of 14: 6 to K / BB in 13 2/3 innings of work. Lefties are only 3 to 16 with a pair of walks and nine losses in 18 record appearances against him (.188 / .278 / .188), and this type of performance against opponents with equal hands is more characteristic of the 6 & # 39; , 3 ", 230 pounds O & Rourke. In his two seasons with Minnesota, he dominated the left-handers and limited them to an awkward .134 / .244 / .239 slash in 80 record appearances. Right-handers did better against O & Rourke and beat him with a .250 / .350 / .390 clip.
