Collins: Jenrry Mejia may keep closer role if he's 'lights out' in April


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins is not expected to award Bobby Parnell (elbow) the closer role when he returns from the disabled list in late April, reports ESPN. Jenrry Mejia, who will open the season as the closer, will have the opportunity to keep the role if he is "lights out" in early April. 

"We'll see where he is when he comes back. We'll see how he's pitching," Collins said. "We provide opportunities. It's up to the players to make the most of it. If we start the season with Jenrry as the closer and he is dealing, he's going to be the closer. Right now I just want Bobby to prepare himself to be the closer, because that's where we think he has the best fit."

Mejia underwent sports hernia surgery in early October but said he was ready to participate in baseball activities by the beginning of January. He went went 6-6 with a 3.65 ERA and 98:41 K:BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings while recording 28 saves.


Mets RP Jenrry Mejia willing to play any bullpen role


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) With former closer Bobby Parnell expected to return from the disabled list around the beginning of May, Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia expressed a willingness to pitch in any bullpen role Tuesday, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

"That's Terry Collins' job," Mejia said Tuesday. "That's not my job. I've got to be out there and do the best I can. Whatever Terry Collins wants me to do, I've got to do. I'll go out there. I'll go to the bullpen, throw the seventh, ninth, eighth inning -- whatever they want me to do."

Mejia has said in the past that he prefers to work as a starting pitcher, in part because he felt a relief role left him more susceptible to injury.

"I'm passed that," Mejia insisted. "I forgot about it. Now I want to be in the bullpen. They want me in the bullpen. So I've got to be there and do my job. When I made the team in 2010, I was a reliever. So when I started [getting used] in the bullpen [last season], I felt comfortable. The first day I didn't feel that good. But, you know, I started my routine and kept working hard and now I feel good. I'll be in the bullpen. I'll be anywhere they want me to be."

Mejia underwent sports hernia surgery in early October but said he was ready to participate in baseball activities by the beginning of January. He went went 6-6 with a 3.65 ERA and 98:41 K:BB ratio in 93 2/3 innings while recording 28 saves.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

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."
