Mets closer Jeurys Familia has received permission from the organization to pitch in winter ball with Gigantes del Cibao, the Dominican team announced. Familia has a scheduled court hearing Thursday, at which time a simple-assault charge is expected to be dropped. Familia still could face an MLB suspension to open the 2017 season for an alleged domestic-violence incident to which Fort Lee, New Jersey, police responded on Oct. 31.
