Closer to Me: Attrition

13

Mauricio Rubio

We're just one week into the season, and a host of teams already have ninth-inning concerns.

Reliever volatility is not a new concept. We’re all used to the closer carousel that sustains itself on poor performance and injury as it turns throughout the season. What happened this week, however, bordered on a league-wide implosion of closers. Let’s take a look at who is left standing after the week that was.

Notes on 11 prospects, including Orioles outfielder Henry Urrutia and Mets right-hander Jeurys Familia.

Hitter of the Day: Henry Urrutia, RF, Orioles (Surprise Saguaros): 3-6, 2 R, 2B, HR. We still don’t know how Urrutia’s game will translate against major-league pitching, but there’s not much else he can do to prove he can hit minor-league competition.

Pitcher of the Day: Jeurys Familia, RHP, Mets (Scottsdale Scorpions): 2 IP, H, 0 R, 1 BB, 3 K. Familia is in the desert to make up for time he lost this season after elbow surgery in June and because if that, he’s likely to have some inconsistencies. When he’s on, however, he has a great arm and on Thursday showed why he could be in the Mets plans for next season. The lost time won’t help with his need to develop his secondary pitches, but with a plus fastball and a future in the bullpen, he needs only an average second pitch to have a future as, at the very least, a middle reliever.
