Well, this could end up being an addition by subtraction but I get the feeling the Mets may end up missing the righty. Jeurys Familia has signed a one year deal with the Philadelphia Phillies.
Familia’s contract is worth approximately $6M and can go as high as approximately $7M. The sinker ball pitcher is a career 32-25 pitcher with 3.28 ERA in 498.2 innings pitched.
During the 2021 campaign, Familia went 9-4 with an ERA 3.94 in 59.1 innings.
The deal comes a few hours after the Mets and Athletics struck up a trade for starting pitcher Chris Bassitt.
