Mets activate closer Familia after 15-game suspension

New York Mets relief pitcher Jeurys Familia throws during a spring training baseball workout in Port St. Lucie Fla. Familia returns to the Mets on Thursday April 20 after sitting out the first 15 games of the

The bullpen is overtaxed and Addison Reed is not available on Thursday against the Phillies, so Familia will slot right back into that ninth-inning closer role.

NY manager Terry Collins said he'd originally planned to ease Familia back into action but, with a worn-down bullpen, "that may not be the case".

"Other than that, everything is great". "I'll get another chance and do better".

Jeurys Familia snapped the silicone black bracelet he was wearing around his right wrist twice, back to back, while he was speaking.

Ontario to tax non-resident foreign housing buyers 15%
Most of the actions aimed at increasing the supply of homes are centered around the development of new rental apartment buildings. A spokeswoman for Premier Kathleen Wynne said Tuesday a tax on non-resident speculators is one of the measures being considered.

Commissioner Rob Manfred did say evidence didn't show Familia physically assaulted or threatened his wife. "Therefore we've had to ask our bullpen to step up a little bit more than we maybe normally would this time of year". There was no apology, some understandable anxiety - and also a lot of relief felt by the closer who claimed he can "control my emotions" after rejoining the team earlier in the day. Collins summoned last season's Major League Baseball saves leader for the ninth Thursday. Just hasn't been out there in a while.

Hours later, he was on the mound Thursday night, pitching in a major-league game for the first time since past year. The suspension cost him $730,328 of his $7,425,000 salary. General manager Sandy Alderson said Wright's timetable was pushed back due to a recent bout with the flu as well as some lower back soreness. "I've missed these guys very much the past two weeks", Familia said through a translator before the loss.

"I'm feeling good. I think I got a little bit excited". He won't get back to his usual ningh inning spot immediately, though. "I can't wait to get back on that mound and do my job so I can help this team win". But the Mets skipper opted against it, largely because Familia last pitched Monday in a one-inning tune-up outing for Double-A Binghamton. Familia said he would be unaffected because "I know how to control my emotions". His suspension was shorter than Jose Reyes (52 games) and Aroldis Chapman (30). And I think we just had to let him work.

After being missing for more than a month, a 15-year-old Tennessee girl was found near a cabin in a remote part of northern California and the 50-year-old teacher accused of kidnapping her was arrested. "He was overthrowing. But he'll be fine". He'll be fine. We need him.
