In his second appearance for the Gigantes del Cibao, Jan. 2, Mets closer Jeurys Familia pitched the eighth inning, struck out two batters, walked one and stranded a runner at second base.
In his first appearance, Dec. 30, Familia faced four batters in the seventh inning, let up a hit, walked a batter, tossed a wild pitch and was charged with two runs scored.
Familia was cleared by the Mets to play winter baseball on Dec. 19, a source told Newsday's Marc Carig. He last pitched with Gigantes del Cibao in 2013.
What's the latest on Familia's possible suspension?
MLB has yet to make an official statement about Familia's status for the 2017 season.
Nevertheless, he is expected to be suspended at least 30 games to start the season, despite an October charge for domestic violence being dropped, sources told Daily News reporter Kristie Ackert in December.
People involved with similar situations recently told MetsBlog's Matthew Cerrone that MLB could end up suspending Familia due to comments his wife made during the initial 911 call to police.
During the October call, Familia's wife acknowledges that she was in a dispute with her husband, he was drunk and "going crazy," she said, according to the Associated Press >> Read more at SNY.TV.
"Baseball and the union take (the domestic violence policy) seriously, and it's important to them that players do the same," the league source told Cerrone.
MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in early November that he was unlikely to judge Familia's domestic violence case against Familia until after the legal process played itself out in court.
Last season, Jose Reyes was suspended 52 games by MLB for violating the league's domestic violence policy, while Hector Olivera received an 82-game suspension and Aroldis Chapman was held out for 30 games.
