Mets pitchers and catchers don't officially have to report to spring training until next week, but Jeurys Familia and Edwin Diaz were among the players already in Port St. Lucie to get in some early workouts.
Familia, coming off of one of his worst seasons, was seen looking noticeably slimmer, telling reporters he lost about 30 pounds this offseason, down to around 238-240 pounds from the 270 he was last season.
After signing back with the Mets in December 2018, Familia struggled all season long. The right-hander pitched to a 5.70 ERA with a 1.733 WHIP. His command was all over the place, as he walked a whopping 42 batters in just 60.0 innings. He also allowed seven home runs, and by the end of the season, he had lost his spot as a "high-leverage" pitcher in the back end of the bullpen.
