Mets' Jenrry Mejia might not have roster spot once suspension ends
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/14/15) Not returning to his role as closer for the Mets won't be reliever Jenrry Mejia's only concern once his 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs is over. His spot on the roster could also be in jeopardy, general manager Sandy Alderson told the New York Daily News.
“That definitely is a consideration,” Alderson said. “It will be factored in when he comes back. I hope our bullpen is pitching so well there is not a spot for him. I hope he is not a factor.”
Alderson said he was "disappointed and unhappy" when he learned about Mejia's suspension. The disappointment doesn't stop with the general manager.
“Yeah, I am pissed. He let all of us down,” one Met said privately. “This is a guy we were counting on and he’s left us trying to find a closer.
“I don’t understand it. He wasn’t trying to make a team -- he had a contract for 2 million dollars.”
The Mets are not considering releasing Mejia, but for now the team will lean on Jeurys Familia to close out games. Bobby Parnell could push Familia for the closer's job once he returns from Tommy John surgery.
“I am looking forward to seeing Familia,” Alderson said. “He showed yesterday he has the potential to do a nice job for us. I think the team has confidence in him.”
Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia suspended 80 games for Stanozolol
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/11/15) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia has been suspended 80 games by the league without pay for testing positive for Stanozolol, a performance-enhancing drug, the league announced Saturday.
Mejia was placed on the 15-day DL last week with an elbow injury kept him from appearing in Opening Day's game against the Nationals.
"I know the rules and I will accept my punishment, but I honestly have no idea how a banned substance ended up in my system," Mejia said via press release Saturday. "I have been through a lot in my young career and missed time due to injury. I have worked way too hard to come back and get to where I am, so I would never knowingly put anything in my body that I thought could hold me out further."
He will also not appeal his suspension.
Mejia posted a 6-6 record in 2014 with a 3.65 ERA and 98 strikeouts in 93 2/3 innings.
Jenrry Mejia may not get Mets' closer job back upon return
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) While Jenrry Mejia is on the Mets disabled list with an elbow injury, Jeurys Familia is filling in as closer.
However, when Mejia returns to the team, he may not get his old job back right away.
That's a tough one because I don't know exactly the extent of how long it's going to take Jenrry to get back," manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "Maybe when he first gets back maybe we get his feet wet a little bit to make sure he's OK and if Jeurys is throwing the ball good we'll leave him there right now."
Mets place Jenrry Mejia on DL, recall Erik Goeddel
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) The Mets will place pitcher Jenrry Mejia on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 5, and recall pitcher Erik Goeddel, the team announced Tuesday.
An MRI revealed Tuesday that Mejia has avoided structural damage in his elbow, but he'll rest after receiving a cortisone shot for the inflammation. Jeurys Familia will fill in as the team's closer while Mejia remains out.
Goeddel surrendered two earned runs in 6 2/3 innings in his major-league debut last season. He posted a 5.37 ERA and 64:30 K:BB ratio in 63 2/3 Triple-A innings last season.
Mets' Jenrry Mejia (elbow) has no structural damage
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/7/15) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia is dealing with significant swelling in his triceps, but there is some belief that he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list after an MRI showed no structural damage on his elbow, the New York Post reports.
Mejia was shut down Monday after feeling stiffness in his elbow while warming up and will receive a cortisone shot. The team announced that Mejia will be shut down for at least 10 days to rest his inflamed elbow, MLB.com reports.
Jeurys Familia is expected to serve in a ninth-inning role for as long as Mejia is sidelined.
|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.
