SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- In his first public comments since a domestic violence complaint was filed against New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia, general manager Sandy Alderson said the team already was likely to seek bullpen help before the legal problem surfaced last week.A complaint in municipal court in Fort Lee, New Jersey, dated Oct. 31 alleged the All-Star pitcher caused bodily injury to another. A hearing is scheduled for Nov. 14.Obviously, we were extremely disappointed and frankly shocked at the allegations, Alderson said Monday at the major league general managers meeting. Of course, he hasnt had a hearing yet and so the facts are to be determined.Alderson termed it not just an unfortunate situation, but a sad one for him and his family.The 27-year-old Familia led the majors with a franchise-record 51 saves this year and has 94 over the past two seasons for the Mets.I dont think that its fully sunk in yet as to what impact it will have simply because its not clear what exactly happened and how that will impact his availability, Alderson said. I think we were inclined to look at some additional late-inning help before this incident occurred.Under baseballs new domestic violence policy, Yankees closer Aroldis Chapman was suspended for the first 29 games of the 2016 season and Colorado shortstop Jose Reyes for 59 days. Reyes was released by the Rockies and signed with the Mets, his original big league team.As the meeting began, the Mets made $17.2 million qualifying offers to a pair of free agents, outfielder Yoenis Cespedes and second baseman Neil Walker. They have until next Monday to accept.Acquired from Detroit at the July 31 trade deadline in 2015, Cespedes had 17 home runs and 44 RBI in 57 games with the Mets down the stretch that year, helping them reach the World Series for the first time since 2000.After finding a slow market for his services in a free-agent class that also included outfielders Jason Heyward, Alex Gordon and Justin Upton, Cespedes made a surprise return to the Mets when New York agreed in January to a $75 million, three-year contract that allowed him to opt out after one season and $27.5 million.Cespedes had 31 homers and 86 RBI in 132 games this year, slowed after injuring his right quadriceps on July 8. He terminated the deal Saturday.We expected him to opt out. We did have one meeting with his agent, about a week, 10 days ago, Alderson said, adding he will meet with the agent again this week. I would say there was some interest on their part in perhaps doing something sooner rather than later. But I think this particular situation is going to have to work itself out. That doesnt mean that were looking for the same sort of late offseason resolution that we had last year.Walker, who had season-ending back surgery on Sept. 8, wants to remain with the Mets, and New York would like to keep him. While Alderson said a long-term contract is possible, he also said Walker might accept the qualifying offer.In a 30-minute assessment of his teams status, Alderson said he expects a return to health for the Mets starting rotation.Matt Harvey had surgery July 18 for thoracic outlet syndrome, Jacob deGrom had a September operation on the ulnar nerve in his right elbow and left-hander Steven Matz had bone spurs removed from his left elbow and a platelet-rich plasma injection in his left shoulder.Right-hander Noah Syndergaard also was slowed by bone spurs but did not have surgery, and right-hander Zack Wheeler hasnt returned to the major leagues from Tommy John surgery in March 2015.In spite of the bumps and bruises and things, people have expressed interest, Alderson said. Because of all these little -- these nicks and other things, I think its unlikely wed trade any of that pitching, in part because it is our strength and in part because right now it might be discounted a little bit in value.With the emergence of Seth Lugo and Robert Gsellman, Alderson said the Mets could employ a six-man rotation at times or skip starts to keep guys fresh. He hopes to re-sign Bartolo Colon, who turns 44 in May.Were eight or nine deep, depending, the GM said. Am I confident theyre all going to be 100 percent? Well that would be probably unrealistic to believe, but I do think were going to be in a much better position with our starting pitching coming out of spring training next year than we have been.Alderson said the Mets will offer a 2017 contract to first baseman Lucas Duda, limited to 47 games because of a stress fracture in his lower back. He expects improved offense at catcher; starter Travis dArnaud had 15 RBI in 75 games, limited by a strained rotator cuff.You cant go into National League season with your eight hitter hitting essentially what your nine hitter is hitting, Alderson said. But we think we have the potential for improvement there.Captain David Wright, who lost weight after surgery June 16 to repair a herniated disk in his neck, is back to 215-218 pounds, according to Alderson. The GM also said he hopes to finalize the coaching staff in the next week but wouldnt say whether there would be changes. Cheap Nike Air Max Australia .

YAS MARINA, Abu Dhabi -- Red Bull boss Christian Horner says Nico Rosberg faces more pressure at this weekends Abu Dhabi Grand Prix as he tries to seal his first drivers title ahead of Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton.Rosberg heads into the season finale as the favourite, with a podium finish enough to secure the title on Sunday, while Hamiltons best chance of title success is to win the race and hope Rosberg finishes fourth or lower. Rosberg has only failed to reach the podium at four of the 19 races he has finished this season, but if Red Bull prove to be competitive in Abu Dhabi he could find himself in a battle with Horners drivers for crucial points.Its going to be fascinating to see whats going to happen this weekend because obviously Lewis job is pretty straightforward -- hes just got to go for it and win the race -- so all the tension is probably going to be on Nico, Horner said. Its Nicos to lose really and we can probably be Lewis best friend this weekend if we manage to get both of our cars between him and Nico.Asked if he thought Rosberg had the nerves to deal with the extra pressure this weekend, Horner added: I dont know, this is the championship point effectively, so it will be interesting to see how he deals with that. Hes driven well under pressure so far this year, hes driven a very strong season and things have gone his way, which is sometimes the way things work out. For sure this will probably be the biggest race of his career this weekend to close the job off.Hes driving with a championship in mind. Hes a bright guy and hes driving the percentage game at the moment, banking the points. He cant afford to get tangled up with another battle, so hes probably going to be watching his mirrors more than most going into Turn 1. As weve seen with our guys, theyre nott in that [high-pressure] position, so theyll simply be going for it.ddddddddddddYou can imagine him [Rosberg] being a bit more tentative than he has been at other races.Horner compared Hamiltons situation to Sebastian Vettels in 2010 when he entered the final round at Abu Dhabi with a 15-point deficit to Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso. A botched Ferrari strategy in the race saw Vettel overcome the odds and win the title with a dominant performance, and Horner believes Hamilton should approach this weekend in the same frame of mind.I think psychologically it is easier for Lewis because its an FA Cup final for him, hes just got to go for it. All he can do is win the race and then the other results have to take care of themselves. That was very much the scenario with Sebastian in 2010, there were four drivers that year -- Lewis, Fernando, Mark [Webber] and Seb -- that all stood a chance of winning. Sebastian just paid no attention to what was going on around him, just got on with the job and drove a great race.The others tightened up a little bit, focusing ... particularly Fernando covering what Mark was doing and forgetting what Seb was doing. And he went into that race similar to Nico just needing to finish in the top three to be world champion and events unfolded and Sebastian prevailed at the end of the day.It just goes to show you cant take anything for granted. At the end of the year the engines, the gearboxes are all getting up there in mileage. Nobody has been infallible to reliability issues, so youd hope it wasnt a factor like that that dictated the championship, but Lewis definitely still has a pretty decent chance going into this final race.
