From Jeurys Familia to Noah Syndergaard to Yoenis Cespedes, things haven’t been great for the Mets
News came down Friday that injured Mets closer Jeurys Familia had surgery due to a blood clot in his shoulder and will miss several months. Given the conversation I had earlier Friday with sports injury expert John Gallucci Jr, president of JAG Physical Therapy, I wasn’t too surprised.
Gallucci is currently the medical coordinator for Major League Soccer, overseeing all 20 teams nationwide, as well as the chair of the New Jersey Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports. He has served as the head athletic trainer for several professional sports teams.
