It’s been quite the season for Mets injury updates, right?

Well, here’s two more for you: Jeurys Familia and Neil Walker. The key word for both of them? “Soon.” Not soon in terms of coming back, but soon to begin throwing, and soon to begin games, respectively.

Back in May, Jeurys Familia had been diagnosed with an arterial blood clot in his right shoulder. The clot was successfully removed mere days later, but he has been out since.

Familia had stated post surgery that if all went well, he’ll be back this season, but not entirely sure of when.

Well, we still don’t know when Familia will be back, but Terry Collins stated on Friday that he will begin throwing a baseball again soon.

Still kind of vague, I know, I know. But this is more news than we’ve gotten on Familia lately, and assuming it does happen, it’s promising news. Especially as so far while down in St. Lucie, Familia has only partook in conditioning exercises.

Will we see Familia again this season? I’m not entirely sure. And it sounds like the Mets and Familia himself aren’t sure either. In the meantime though, Addison Reed has been holding down the fort, and has been doing a great job so far.
