NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ACES Inc. Baseball agents Seth Levinson and Sam Levinson have negotiated a three-year, $30 million deal for relief pitcher Jeurys Familia with the New York Mets.
Familia, signed out of the Dominican Republic in 2007 by the Mets, spent his entire professional career in the organization before he was dealt to the A's last July. The right-hander posted a 3.13 ERA with 18 saves and a career-high 10.4 K/9 over 72 innings last season.

"(ACES agents Seth Levinson and Sam Levinson)..often finish deals at the other end of the offseason -- early -- by running the gamut of teams quickly, determining what they believe to be the negotiating tipping points for their clients, pushing to resolution, and getting them off the board."
