|Jenrry Mejia collects 19th save Tuesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/26/14) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia picked up his 19th save Tuesday, giving up one hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning to finish off his team's 3-2 victory over the Braves.
Mejia has been roughed up a bit in August, but he's now put together back-to-back scoreless outings. He owns a 3.94 ERA and 82:35 K:BB ratio in 80 innings.
|Jenrry Mejia dealing with back issue |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/20/14) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia was unavailable to pitch Wednesday due to a back issue, the New York Daily News reports.
The Mets won the game 8-5 but let Jeurys Familia record the final five outs of the outing. Mejia revealed earlier in August that he has been pitching through a sports hernia, but it appears Wednesday's issue was unrelated.
|Jenrry Mejia suffers third loss in last seven outings |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia entered Sunday's game against the Cubs in the ninth inning in a 1-all game. He ended up with the loss, as Chicago went on a 2-1 win.
The Cubs quickly regained a one-run advantage in the ninth inning after the Mets tied the game in the eighth, as Starlin Castro parked the first pitch he saw from Mejia over the right-field wall for his 13th home run of the season.
Mejia (5-6) would allow a one-out single to Arismendy Alcantara, but no more runs would score. Mejia finished the inning with a strikeout of John Baker.
Mejia has suffered three losses in his last seven outings. He's allowed at least one run in four of his last seven appearances. He was pitching for the third time in four days Sunday.
|Jenrry Mejia shuts down Cubs Friday |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(8/15/14) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia shut down the Cubs for his 18th save Friday.
Mejia entered the game with a one-run lead. He got through the ninth without any issues. Mejia tossed a perfect inning, notching one strikeout. His ERA dropped to 3.79 following the outing.
|Mets closer situation getting interesting |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(8/12/14) Mets reliever Jeurys Familia recorded a save Monday night, filling in for an injured Jenrry Mejia, who expects to finish out the season despite contending with a tight calf, a sore leg, thigh and back and, oh yeah, a sports hernia.
Further complicating matters is the fact Familia's save wasn't as clean as it could be. He allowed an earned run in 1 1/3 innings. It was his second straight shaky save. He allowed a hit and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday at Philadelphia.
Of course, with a 1.97 ERA and 1.20 WHIP on the year, he's by far the Mets' best option for saves should Mejia miss time, which seems highly plausible given that lengthy list of injuries. It's not like he hasn't stumbled while attempting to pitch through them. He blew his last save opportunity Sunday and has allowed at least one earned run in three of his last four appearances.
In this type of situation, we can only play hunches, and mine is that the Mets shut down Mejia at some point. If you play in a league where saves are scarce, you should check to see if Familia is already owned.
|Jenrry Mejia was hardly on a baseball mound in 2013 because of elbow problems. He started developing arm issues in spring training and wouldn't make it onto a major-league mound until late July, but even then he wasn't 100 percent. Mejia was pitching through pain as he was trying to postpone elbow surgery until after the season. He lasted all of five starts for the Mets until the team finally shut him down in favor of getting the surgery done in late August. But now that Mejia had a bone spur removed from his elbow, he's ready to compete for a spot in the rotation. Mejia actually pitched pretty well despite being hurt last season, tossing seven scoreless innings in his season debut at Washington while finishing 1-2 with a 2.30 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. He also struck out 27 batters and issued just four walks in 27 1/3 innings. Mejia was already fairly accomplished, checking in as a Baseball America top-100 prospect in 2010 and 2011. He showed last season he could be very helpful in Fantasy, but he's had elbow issues dating back to 2011 when he underwent Tommy John surgery. If Mejia lands a rotation spot, he could be an injury-risk sleeper late on Draft Day.
