Boston Red Sox sign Jeurys Familia to minor league deal; ex-Mets closer had 6.09 ERA with Phillies this year

The Red Sox have signed veteran reliever Jeurys Familia to a minor league contract and assigned him to Triple-A Worcester, as first reported by Joe McDonald of the Worcester Telegram and Gazette.

Familia was designated for assignment and subsequently released by the Phillies last week after posting a 6.09 ERA in 38 games out of Philadelphia’s bullpen this season. The ex-Mets closer signed a one-year, $6 million contract with the Phillies in March but struggled for most of the season, including posting a 7.71 ERA since May 13. The 32-year-old posted a career-high WHIP of 1.853 and allowed plenty of hits (48 in 34 innings), including six homers. Statcast suggests that his poor numbers are not a fluke, either, as he ranks in the bottom percentile in hard-hit rate among major league pitchers this season and in the 11th percentile in barrel rate.

Good luck. Familia had some stretches where he looked fantastic, but that was a really long time ago now. I’d imagine this is the end of the line for him, but you never know with relievers.

I am quite Familia with this particular pitcher - and my takeaway is that the Red Sox are angling for a better draft pick with this move.

Well they had to sign someone now that Chris Sale fractured his hand falling off a bike.
