The bad news just keeps on coming for the Mets.
Jeurys Familia is heading back to the IL with a Bennett lesion in his right shoulder -- the same injury that placed him on the list last time around -- the team announced before Tuesday's contest with the Braves.
Manager Mickey Callaway was asked about Familia's health on Tuesday, and he didn't give a straight answer.
"It seems like his stuff is in the right place," he told Yahoo! Sports' Matt Ehalt. "We'll have conversations with him daily, we'll see how he bounced back today from last night and continue to do our daily due diligence on everybody and their health.
A Bennett lesion, or bone spur, was revealed to be in Familia's throwing shoulder in his past IL stint that came on May 1. He received an injection to relieve the pain, and needed the entire 10-day trip on the IL before being activated again. It is unknown if that will be the current plan for Familia again since this is the second time the same injury has occurred.
Mets GM Brodie Van Wagenen noted that these Bennett lesions are something Familia has dealt with in the past.
"It's something that he experienced last year, so when he felt that today, he brought it to our attention," Van Wagenen said back in May. "We obviously got him to Dr. [David] Altchek and they went through a similar protocol."
This is just another bad break for the Mets today, after announcing Brandon Nimmo was shut down from baseball activities following his second opinion visit in Los Angeles.
Familia has struggled mightily this season, owning a 7.81 ERA and 1.84 WHIP over 27.2 innings (29 appearances) this season. He also has 28 strikeouts to 21 walks thus far.
Taking Familia's spot on the roster is RHP Stephen Nogosek, who will make his MLB debut if and when he hears his name called. Nogosek has been stellar this season, with a 0.57 ERA (two earned runs over 31.2 innings) in 19 games between Double- and Triple-A.
Daniel Zamora was also recalled from Triple-A Syracuse, while RHP Drew Gagnon was optioned to Triple-A. The 25-year-old has made 11 appearances for the Mets this season, totaling six innings where he allowed four earned runs.
