The New York Mets will activate closer Jeurys Familia from the 60-day disabled list prior to Friday’s game against the Washington Nationals, the team announced Thursday.
Familia has been rehabbing from shoulder surgery with the Brooklyn Cyclones. The 27-year-old right-hander worked a scoreless inning on Wednesday and told reporters that is ready to return after having a blood clot removed from his shoulder in May.
“Finishing the season with the team is huge for me to get my confidence back,” Familia said, per the New York Daily News.
Familia owns a 1-1 mark with a 3.86 ERA in 11 appearances in 2017 on the heels of serving a 15-game suspension for an offseason domestic violence incident.
Familia was a first-time All-Star last year and led the majors with a team-record 51 saves, finishing with a 2.55 ERA and 84 strikeouts in 77 2/3 innings.
