Mets, Jenrry Mejia swap arbitration figures
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/16/15) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia has filed for $3 million in arbitration, while the team has offered $2.1 million, CBSSports.com baseball insider Jon Heyman reported Friday.
Mejia is eligible for arbitration for the first time this offseason. He racked up 28 saves while posting a 3.65 ERA and 98:41 K:BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings last season.

Jenrry Mejia fine if Mets decide to put him in setup role
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/16/14) Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia has no problems with manager Terry Collins stating the closer's job is Bobby Parnell's to lose. In fact, Meja -- who had a team-high 28 saves in 2014 -- seems fine with being a setup reliever for Parnell, who missed last season recovering from Tommy John surgery.
"They put me in the closer's job. I did my job," Mejia said Tuesday, per ESPN. "Whatever job they give to me, I've got to be there to help my team. I can throw the seventh inning, eighth inning, ninth inning, wherever. I've got to be ready to play the game. That's all. Mentally it's the same thing -- just come here and do my job.
"I feel happy to see Bobby Parnell getting ready, because we're going to have a more strong bullpen -- Bobby Parnell, [Jeurys] Familia, [Vic] Black and everybody. That has to make me feel happy, because all of my friends are going to be healthy."
Mets' Collins: Closer role is Bobby Parnell's job to lose
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(12/8/14) Mets manager Terry Collins indicated Monday there will be a competition for the closer's role this spring, even though Jenrry Mejia performed well in the role last season. In fact, Collins even said injured reliever Bobby Parnell, who missed the 2014 season due to Tommy John surgery, is the incumbent closer.
"It's Bobby's (job) to lose," Collins said, per NJ.com. "I love competition."
Collins also mentioned Jeurys Familia and Vic Black as options for the closer's role. The Mets totaled 42 saves in 2014, with Mejia having a team-high 28 saves. Familia was second on the team with five.
|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.
