Hansel Robles, Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia all unavailable on Thursday
The Mets will be operating well short in their bullpen against the Braves on Thursday night.
Hansel Robles has left the team to be with his family after a death occurred in his family.
In addition, Terry Collins said both Tyler Clippard and Jeurys Familia will have Thursday’s game off .
Clippard has worked in three of the last four games, and Familia has worked in three straight games.
That means Addison Reed might get a shot at closing if the situation calls for it on Thursday. It could also mean Tim Stauffer and Eric O’Flaherty and maybe even Bobby Parnell get bumped up the food chain as well on Thursday, with Sean Gilmartin likely the long man in the bullpen if Bartolo Colon has a rough night.
