Mets closer Jeurys Familia (blood clot surgery) will pitch for Low-A Brooklyn on Tuesday and Wednesday as he continues his rehab assignment.
Familia pitched a scoreless eighth inning for High-A St. Lucie on Saturday night in his latest rehab apperance.
He allowed a hit and a walk while striking out three batters. It was his second appearance of the week after pitching a scoreless inning for St. Lucie on Wednesday night.
On Aug. 2, Familia threw his first bullpen session since having surgery in May to repair an arterial blood clot in his right shoulder.
He began a throwing program in Port. St. Lucie, Florida, in July, at which time Mets manager Terry Collins and GM Sandy Alderson said they would like to see him return to the mound this season.
Alderson recently estimated Familia could return as soon as the end of August.
Familia went 1-1 with three saves and a 3.86 ERA earlier this season before being placed on the 60-day disabled list. He also missed 15 games to start the season after he was suspended for violating the league's domestic violence policy.
In 258 career games, Familia owns a 2.51 ERA and 1.20 WHIP with 271 strikeouts and 103 saves.
