The Red Sox named former Mets star reliever Juris Familia to the assignment after a slump performance against the Yankees on Tuesday, just a month after he was added to the team’s Major League roster.
The former Mets entered Tuesday’s game at the top of the 10th inning, as the Yankees and Red Sox drew 4-4. He immediately went to Aaron Hicks, and after prompting a Marvin Gonzalez double play, Familia intentionally went to Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton right after.
Then, Gleber Torres ripped the double to right center, scoring the judges, Estevan Florial (who ran for Stanton) and Isiah Kiner-Falefa, who, according to MLB’s extra innings rules, started in 10th place in second place. Of.

The Red Sox scored two runs in the bottom of the 10th, but Vandy Peralta managed to end the game by defeating Rafael Devers. Familia took losses and their ERA with Boston reached 6.10. The team named him for the assignment shortly after a 7–6 Yankees win.
“I have to take some time off and get some rest and then go back to work so I can be ready for next year,” Familia told reporters Via interpreter Carlos Villora Benitez after the game.
Familia, 32, spent 10 years with the Mets in two separate stints, one from 2012 to 2018, and again from 2019 to 2021 after being traded halfway through the 2018 season to the Oakland A. In his Mets career, he made 124 saves and had a 3.24 ERA.
He began the 2022 season with the Phillies, but was also named for assignment by Philadelphia after posting a nearly identical ERA (6.09) in 38 appearances with the team. He only got 10 with Boston before suffering the same fate.
