Mets RP Jenrry Mejia to assume setup role upon activation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(7/1/15) Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia is ready to rejoin the team when his 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs ends next week, manager Terry Collins said Tuesday.
After two scoreless appearances in the Gulf Coast League (Rookie), Mejia fired one scoreless inning for Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday. He struck out two and has six strikeouts in three innings since he began to throw in the minors.
“He’s ready to go, ready to pitch here and he’s going to go out a couple of more times and then he’s going to come back,” Collins said, per the New York Post. “I think you’re going to see a little different team, when we start to get our guys back and our young kids have done a tremendous job of holding us in there while we’ve had all these injuries and in this case the suspension. But when [Mejia] gets back he’s going to help us.”
Collins said Mejia, who is expected to assume a setup role upon his return, has had his fastball range from 94-96 mph.
“When he was 20 years old he pitched pretty good at this level, in a similar role that he’s going to pitch in now,” Collins said. “Hopefully he can regain that and be a big asset for us in the bullpen.”

Mets RP Jenrry Mejia will return to bullpen after suspension
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(6/16/15) The Mets' bullpen could be getting one of their long-awaited arms back in the near future. Right-hander Jenrry Mejia , who was suspended for 80 games at the beginning of the season, is eligible to return on July 7 when the team is in San Francisco. And when he comes back, he'll have a spot at the back end of the bullpen waiting for him.
"When he comes back, he'll certainly be at the back end of that bullpen and ready to help out," manager Terry Collins said, per the New York Daily News.
The Mets currently have the third-lowest bullpen ERA in the National League, but lately they have had trouble handing a lead over to closer Jeurys Familia in the ninth inning.
Mejia will likely need about two weeks-worth of rehab games to get his arm up to speed before he joins the club. Mejia was on the disabled list with elbow soreness prior to the suspensions. But Mejia's health is no longer in question.
"This was not about health. His arm is fine," Collins said. "So when he gets his reps in and he gets his command back as he's getting ready to pitch - when he comes back - he'll certainly be at the back end of that bullpen."
Mets' Jenrry Mejia (elbow) to begin throwing program next week
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(6/2/15) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia (elbow) will return to the United States to begin a throwing program in about 10 days, The Star-Ledger reports.
Mejia was placed on the disabled list in early April before being handed an 80-game suspension for testing positive for an anabolic steroid. Though initially the reliever was said by general manager Sandy Alderson not to be guaranteed a roster spot once his suspension was served, manager Terry Collins indicated on Monday that the team would find a spot for him in the bullpen.
Mejia had served as the team's closer before his absence, but the Mets have seen Jeurys Familia blossom in the role, racking up 15 saves in 16 opportunities while posting a 1.44 ERA and 30:6 K:BB ratio in 25 innings this season.
|2014 summary: Jenrry Mejia began the season in the Mets' rotation, but between a lack of success in that role (5.06 ERA in seven starts) and the team's desperate need for a closer, he was soon moved into the ninth inning role. Having cycled through Jose Valverde, Kyle Farnsworth and Daisuke Matsuzaka, the Mets finally gave Mejia his chance to close in mid-May. He held onto the job through the end of the season, though he ceded some save opportunities to Jeurys Familia in the latter weeks as he was pitching through a sports hernia. Mejia went 6-6 with a 3.65 ERA and 28 saves on the season.|
Playing time status: Mejia will contend for the closer's role in spring training with Jeurys Familia being his most likely competitor. Even if Mejia heads into opening day as the team's closer, Bobby Parnell could challenge him later in the season when he completes his recovery from Tommy John surgery.
2015 outlook: Though Mejia was largely successful as a closer, he doesn't rank high among incumbents in terms of job security. He's a decent fallback option as a No. 2 reliever in mixed leagues and could produce a nice payoff if he wins the job outright.
