The arterial clot will be examined Friday in St. Louis by Dr. Robert Thompson, who treated starter Matt Harvey previous year for thoracic outlet syndrome, the Mets said in a statement. Plus, left fielder Yoenis Cespedes is still a few weeks away from returning from a hamstring injury, and starters Steven Matz and Seth Lugo, third baseman David Wright, outfielder Brandon Nimmo, infielder Wilmer Flores and first baseman Lucas Duda all have nursed ailments of varying degrees.

The Mets' main concern with Familia in the past has been overuse.

NY has scored in the first inning in eight of its last nine games, totaling 17 runs. Familia was looking much better before Wednesday night's meltdown. It was third consecutive day he had pitched.?
