Familia makes first AFL appearance
By Adam Rubin
Jeurys Familia tossed a scoreless inning with one strikeout in his first Arizona Fall League appearance, in relief in a 7-6 loss by Scottsdale against Mesa on Monday night.
Familia, who turned 24 last week, made one late-season appearance with the Mets after recovering quickly from surgery to remove a bone spur and loose bodies from his right elbow. The procedure was performed on June 5.
He logged only 19 2/3 innings between the majors and minors during the regular season.
