FANTASY BASEBALL BREAKING NEWS: SUSPENSION DECISION IMMINENT IN JEURYS FAMILIA CASE

New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia returned to the team's spring training complex early Monday after being excused the last two days while the finishing touches were being put on his domestic abuse case with commissioner Rob Manfred.  A decision on Familia's suspension is "imminent" according to multiple sources and will likely be anywhere between 30 and 50 games.  While Familia is out, Addison Reed will close games for the Mets.

Analysis:  Not a shock at all as Familia being absent was the last stages of this situation.  We all knew between 30 and 50 games would be the likely benchmark given the earlier suspension of Aroldis Chapman and Jose Reyes and so Familia's fantasy baseball value takes a decent hit.  Reed is a very good handcuff though who can pick up 15 saves or so in Familia's absence.
