Mets activate closer Familia after 15-game suspension

FILE- In this Feb. 21 2017 file

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.

Oil prices mixed after US production seen rising
World oil demand growth in 2016 was kept broadly unchanged at 1.38 million barrels per day (mb/d), averaging 95.05 mb/d. Official US oil data is expected to be published later on Wednesday by the Energy Information Administration (EIA).

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.
