Here is an excerpt from BA on Familia:
In his final 14 FSL starts prior to a bump to Binghamton, Familia logged a 3.11 ERA and a strikeout-to-walk ratio of 102-to-24 over 84 innings. So what we've seen early in 2011 is not necessarily an April fluke.Thanks to BA for the Tuesday heads up.
Familia's been even better in two Double-A starts. He's fanned 12 and walked three in 14 innings while allowing just two runs. Subscribers can expect much more on Familia in Tuesday's Prospect Bulletin, which focuses on the Mets' Double-A rotation and new organizational pitching philosophy.
BA's Matt Eddy answered a question about Familia in today's chat session:
- TJ (Rockland County, NY): What do you think Familia's future role will be? I have heard a lot say he is a bullpen guy but his results this year may say otherwise. Can he be a future SP?
