NL East: Top 10 Most Impressive Players Through May

5. Mets: Jeurys Familia (2-1. 3.76 ERA, 23 SO, 17/17 saves converted)

Familia falls into the same boat that Jeanmar Gomez does, in my mind; he’s been a stellar closer that’s had his work cut out for him in a lot of close games. Familia’s numbers may look like he should be behind Gomez, but remember that over two points, on his ERA, came in two games against the Dodgers at the end of May. Prior to that series, his ERA was sitting at just 2.01. Even then, it was hard to distinguish between Gomez and Familia, they’ve both been phenomenal closers up to this point, and I expect that to continue. As deGrom and Harvey continue to re-tune themselves in 2016, Familia will continue to see a pretty heavy workload, along with the offense. We saw what happens on his days off, as the Mets lost their first game this season when leading after seven innings on Tuesday. The Mets are now 28-1 when the Mets lead after seven innings. He proved that he could live up to that in 2015, however, and I expect he’ll continue to do so in 2016.

Daniel Murphy totally deserves this No. 1 slot. What a wrecking ball! RBIs all over. If only Harper was batting well…
