Familia returning to the Mets

By on December 13, 2018

A familiar face is heading back to the Big Apple.

The New York Mets announced that they have signed veteran reliever Jeurys Familia to a three-year contract with a total value of approximately $25 million.

Familia, 29, initially signed with the Mets as an amateur free agent in July 2007, and had spent his entire professional career with the organization other than a brief stint with the Oakland Athletics after he was dealt at the MLB Trade Deadline last season.

Throughout his career, the Dominican Republic native has posted a 17-19 record, 2.73 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 124 saves over a span of seven seasons, 343 games and 352.2 innings pitched.
