2018 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: METS PITCHING COACH PREDICTS JEURYS FAMILIA WILL LEAD TEAM IN SAVES

New York Mets pitching coach Dave Eiland spoke openly on Wednesday regarding how he believed incumbent closer Jeurys Familia would lead the team in saves this season and get the majority of looks in the ninth inning despite new manager Mickey Callaway saying he would use a strict committee there. 

Analysis:  Familia is the guy we have said all along has the most fantasy baseball value among the strong collection of Met bullpen arms but there is a legitimate concern about how he will perform coming off a serious shoulder surgery a year ago for a blood clot.  That means anyone who drafts Familia needs to quickly back him up with the accomplished A.J. Ramos as well.
