2. Jeurys Familia (RP-Mets)

  • 22 S, 1.16 ERA, 0.905 WHIP, 9.3 K/9

Earlier, we dubbed the 2015 MLB season as “the year of the bullpen” here in New York.

Mets closer Jeurys Familia is one enormous reason for this overly strong sentiment.

Once Jenrry Mejia was caught with his hands in the cookie jar, Familia found himself as the man in the back-end of the Mets pen. What he’s done with the opportunity has now given him a stranglehold over the closer role in Flushing for a very long time.

If Mejia can come back and contribute and youngster Logan Verrett can continue his hot ways, Terry Collins will suddenly have some dangerous ammunition late in games.

Familia very well may be the lone Mets representative at the 2015 All-Star Game.
