The Mets announced on Thursday that closer Jeurys Familia has been diagnosed with an arterial clot in his right shoulder after an examination at the Hospital for Special Surgery.

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. Look for an update on Familia's status Friday. May.

"There's been a lot of action around here", Mets manager Terry Collins said.

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

Now they'll be without a pitcher who had a club-record 51 saves last season.

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.? Collins said that was not the issue, citing that Familia has been successful on back-to-back-to-back days in the past.
