Anthony Swarzak picks up save with Familia sidelined

June 10, 2018

New York Mets – Anthony Swarzak picked up his first save of the season tonight, closing out a 2-run victory. Though Robert Gsellman has been the handcuff for Jeurys Familia all year — and Swarzak has only pitched a few innings all season long — it seems as if the latter will be the Mets stopper while Familia is out, as Swarzak was also used later than Gsellman on Saturday. Mickey Callaway didn’t confirm anything postgame, so we’ll keep an asterisk here for now until we’re certain, but for now, it seems like the veteran righty is the go-to guy.

Updated hierarchy: *Swarzak | Gsellman | Sewald.
