Jenrry Mejia to attempt bullpen session Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia will attempt to throw a bullpen session Saturday before determining whether he can make Monday's scheduled start, ESPNNewYork.com reports.

Mejia was supposed to throw his bullpen session Friday but it's been pushed back at least a day. He had to leave his last start with a blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand, putting his availability for Monday's start in doubt.


Mets to know Jenrry Mejia's status on Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2014) Mets starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia, who left his start Tuesday with a blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand, will throw a bullpen session Friday. Manager Terry Collins said he will know after the bullpen session whether or not Mejia will be available for his next start Monday against the Cardinals.

Jenrry Mejia leaves excellent performance with blister issue


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia was removed from Tuesday's start against the Diamondbacks after completing five innings due to a torn blister on the middle finger of his throwing hand, MLB.com reports.

Mejia had thrown 77 pitches before being removed, giving up just two hits and two walks while striking out three. He's in line for the win with his team up 9-0. Mejia owns a 2.81 ERA and 18:11 K:BB ratio through 16 innings. His status for his next scheduled start Monday against the Cardinals remains to be seen.


Control woes remain an issue for Jenrry Mejia


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) Mets starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia didn't look particularly sharp in his second start of the season Thursday against the Braves, though the offense bailed him out in a 6-4 win.

Mejia was tagged for four runs in five innings of work, and most of the damage came off the bat of Justin Upton. Upton took Mejia deep twice to account for three of the four runs allow, in the second and third innings.

Mejia also struggled with his control for the second straight start. He allowed four runs on six hits and four walks in the game, though he also struck out seven batters in his five innings of work while settling for a no-decision.

Mejia has a 4.09 ERA through two starts, but control has been a major issue. He has walked nine batters in 11 innings, though he has also contributed 15 strikeouts. He will try to sort out his control issues in his next start, set for Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.  


Jenrry Mejia able to run Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia was able to run Saturday after being hit in the ankle during Friday's start, according to ESPN.

There's no concern about the injury preventing Mejia from making his next start. Manager Terry Collins isn't worried, saying the fact that he ran without issue is "a good indication nothing's wrong." Mejia will take on Atlanta Thursday.


Jenrry Mejia pitches around control issues


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/5/2014) Mets starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia wasn't at his sharpest in his season debut against the Reds Friday, but he pitched around some control problems in a 4-3 win.

Mejia's issues were mostly self-inflicted, as he walked five batters in six innings. Fortunately, the Reds had trouble generating contact when he was in the zone, as he struck out eight and limited them to just four hits and one run.

Mejia seems to be completely recovered from Tommy John surgery, and should be a fixture in the team's rotation. His next start is set for Thursday against Atlanta. 


The time is now to claim Jenrry Mejia


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(3/31/2014) Due to reports in the earlier portions of spring training that suggested Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia would probably work out of the bullpen or in Triple-A, I completely slept on the 24-year-old in Fantasy drafts and auctions. I'm lucky I still have a chance to get him, now that he has been annointed as the team's fifth starter.

Perhaps because others were scared off by those reports, Mejia is still available in 79 percent of the leagues on CBSSports.com. He's a must-own in deeper leagues, but I have made claims on him in two 12-team mixed leagues today. Though Mejia pitched only 27 1/3 innings in the majors last year, he showed what he can do when healthy: get whiffs and grounders at exceedingly high rates and throw strikes.

That potential makes Mejia worth a gamble in standard mixed leagues. If he doesn't work out or hits the inevitable innings limit, the likes of Tim Hudson and Bronson Arroyo will still be there on waivers.


Jenrry Mejia cleared for Friday start


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia has been cleared to start Friday, according to ESPN.

Mejia is dealing with some forearm issues after taking a line drive off his arm. He threw for team doctors Sunday, and was considered good to go. He'll take on the Reds Friday.


Jenrry Mejia snags last rotation spot for Mets


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2014) The Mets ave taken the youthful route in establishing their rotation. They have tabbed 24-year-old Jenrry Mejia as their fifth starter. He beat out 39-year-old Daisuke Matsuzaka for the job.

Mejia performed well this spring despite an 0-1 record. He gave up 12 hits and fanned 13 in 13 1/3 innings in compiling a 2.70 ERA. He provided encouragement last season by striking out 27 in 27 1/3 innings over five starts and recording a 2.30 ERA.


Jennry Mejia fine after liner nails forearm


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia, who is awaiting word on whether he has landed a spot in the rotation, announced Saturday, received good news from an MRI on his right forearm. He only has inflammation after taking a line drive off it on Friday and leaving the game.

Mejia is considered day-to-day.


Jenrry Mejia diagnosed with forearm contusion


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia was diagnosed with a right forearm contusion, the team announced. Mejia left Friday's outing in Montreal against the Blue Jays after being hit by a line drive in the forearm.

Mejia pitched three scoreless innings before serving up a solo home run to Jose Bautista in the fourth inning. He allowed just one run on five hits and one walk while striking out three over four innings of work. He is expected to have precautionary X-Rays taken after the game.

Mejia is competing with Daisuke Matsuzaka for the final spot in the rotation. He has posted a 2.70 ERA and 13:6 K:BB ratio over 13 1/3 innings (three starts).

Jenrry Mejia departs after taking line drive off forearm


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2014) Already dealing with a bunion on his right foot, Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia departed Friday's outing in Montreal against the Blue Jays after being hit by a line drive in the right forearm, ESPN New York reports.

Mejia walked off the mound slowly after getting struck. He pitched three scoreless innings before serving up a solo home run to Jose Bautista in the fourth inning. He allowed just one run on five hits and one walk while striking out three over four innings of work.

Mejia is competing with Daisuke Matsuzaka for the final spot in the rotation. He has posted a 2.70 ERA and 13:6 K:BB ratio over 13 1/3 innings (three starts). The team will likely issue another update on his condition before deciding the fifth starter.

Jenrry Mejiadealing with bunion on right foot


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia is dealing with a bunion on his right foot, which could have a lasting affect this spring, The Star-Ledger reports.

Mejia is battling Daisuke Matsuzaka for the final spot in the rotation. The ailment should not affect him when he makes his final start of the spring on Friday, he told the paper. Mejia has posted a 2.89 ERA and 10:5 K:BB ratio over 9 1/3 innings (three starts).

Mets pay to delay decision on fifth starter a little longer


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) The Mets have agreed to pay $100,000 to starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka to keep the right to have the veteran right-handed pitcher not open the season on the major-league roster. The Mets haven't chosen a fifth starter between Matsuzaka and Jenrry Mejia, and the decision could be delayed depending on what the team plans to do with starting pitcher Jonathon Niese (elbow), per ESPN.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/25/2014) The Mets are close to deciding who will be the team's fifth starting pitcher, general manager Sandy Alderson told reporters Tuesday. The team is expected to have an announcement regarding starting pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka, who is competing with Jenrry Mejia for the final spot in the rotation, at noon Tuesday.

Alderson said the Mets will not use Mejia in relief, if he doesn't land a spot in the rotation. He would go to Triple-A Las Vegas and continue to work as a starter.


Jenrry Mejia Ks six in five innings vs. Nationals


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/23/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia continued to make a strong case for a spot in the rotation on Sunday, striking out six over five innings pitched in a 3-1 win over the Nationals.

Mejia, who is battling Daisuke Matsuzaka for the fifth spot, yielded one run on two hits and one walk. He lowered his ERA from 4.15 to 2.89 after his third start. He also has a 10:5 K:BB ratio over 9 1/3 innings. He'll get one last start on Friday in Montreal against the Blue Jays.

Report: Mets still open on fifth starter


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(3/21/2014) The Mets have yet to settle on a fifth starter, a source has told Newsday, despite reports that Daisuke Matsuzaka has it locked up. The battle between him and Jenrry Mejia could come down to their final spring outings.

Matsuzaka owns a 4.97 ERA in four starts this spring while the 24-year-old Mejia boasts a 4.15 ERA, though he has started just twice and thrown only 4 1/3 innings.

The Mets could decide to start Matsuzaka in the minors, where he has about one month of eligibility left if he doesn't make the opening day roster.


Jenrry Mejia appears headed to Triple-A to start season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2014) While Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia has done well this spring, it appears he will open the 2014 season at Triple-A Las Vegas, according to ESPN. Daisuke Matsuzaka is projected to win the competition for the final spot in the team's rotation over John Lannan and Mejia.

Team insiders told ESPN they will meet late in spring training to decide once and for all if Mejia will continue his career as a starter or reliever. The team is tired of moving Mejia between the rotation and bullpen.

(3/5/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia made his spring debut Wednesday, allowing one unearned run on one hit and two walks while striking out three in two innings in his team's 11-5 loss to the Nationals.

Mejia underwent elbow surgery in late August and is now battling for a spot in the rotation. He could be used out of the bullpen if he can't make the team's initial starting five.


Jenrry Mejia could open season in bullpen


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters Monday starting pitcher Jenrry Mejia is a candidate for the bullpen, if he does not secure the final spot in the team's rotation this spring.

Veterans top bet for Mets last rotation spot - but not only bet


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/14/2014) Terry Collins indicated Friday that he prefers a veteran to man the fifth starting spot for the Mets, per the New York Post. That bodes well for John Lannan and Daisuke Matsuzaka.

If neither steps up, however, promising right-hander Jenrry Mejia is a possibility. Mejia showed his first flashes of major league talent last season, compiling a 2.30 ERA in five starts and fanning 27 in 27 1/3 innings.

He hasn't thrown a bullpen session, but he has thrown from 100 feet without discomfort, Mets' director of Latin American operations Juan Henderson said.

"He’s on the right track," Henderson said. "He’s still on his rehab program, which started down here. Now he went to Port St. Lucie to continue it and he’s doing very well. He’s on schedule so we are very happy with what we’ve seen so far with his progress. So he should be fine and ready to compete in the states."
