Mets reliever Jeurys Familia, who has been working out with teammate Dellin Betances under the training of Dave Paladino in New Jersey, is confident he and Betances will be fine during a potentially shortened 2020 season. But he's worried about other players.
"I think it'll cause a lot of injuries," Familia told Pat Ragazzo of Metsmerized. "Most guys aren't fortunate enough to have the same level of training as me and Dellin. Thank God Dave is allowing us to use his facility so we can throw every day, stretch out our arms, and get the proper physical training we need to prepare."
Betances, whose velocity was down early in spring training (as it often is at that point) said his velocity is "good right now," and Familia said the two relievers have been in touch with the Mets' trainer as they continue to prepare for the season.
