Jenrry Mejia suffers third loss in last seven outings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) 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

Mets closer situation getting interesting


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/12/2014) 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.

Yeah, OK.

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 reveals another injury concern after blown save


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Mets closer Jenrry Mejia told reporters following a disastrous outing on Sunday that he's pitching through sports hernia. Mejia said he wants to finish the season before considering surgery.

Manager Terry Collins also revealed that Mejia has a minor calf ailment, and while his calf is not at 100 percent, he believes it's not a factor during his rough patch, per ESPN. He also revealed that he's working through leg, thigh and back soreness, per Newsday.

Mejia (5-5) was unable to slam the door shut on the Phillies on Sunday, as he surrendered two runs in the ninth for the loss and blown save. He's coughed up runs for the third time in five games. His ERA has ballooned from 3.66 to 3.89 over that span.

Mets confident Jenrry Mejia has minor calf ailment


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/10/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins said Sunday closer Jenrry Mejia had his lingering calf injury examined by a doctor Saturday, and the team is confident Mejia is not dealing with more than just a cramp, per ESPN.

Jenrry unavailable Saturday with calf problem


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/9/2014) If the Mets need a closer Saturday night in Philadelphia, they will not call upon Jenrry Mejia. He has been ruled out with calf tightness that has plagued him recently.

Jenrry Mejia surrenders go-ahead run in the ninth


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Jenrry Mejia relying on five-pitch repertoire in closer's role


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia has found success as the team's closer, posting a 2.20 ERA and converting 14 of 16 save chances since taking over the role in mid-May. 

Mejia's success has hinged on his ability to rely less on his fastball and more on his secondary pitches, which include a curveball, slider and changeup. He even throws a two-seam fastball on occasion. 

"When a guy has command like that it’s fun," Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud said, per The Star-Ledger. "Especially someone in the ninth inning. Most closers have one-two pitches but with four pitches it just makes him that much harder to hit."

Mejia threw his fastball 64 percent of the time as a starter, according to BrooksBaseball.net. It's down to 46 percent in July.

"The hitter is going to think about what is coming because this guy has, like, five pitches that he can throw for strikes," Mejia said. "That’s why I use all my pitches in just one inning. If I use all my pitches they’re not going to get comfortable because they don’t think about if I am starter. I just don’t want, like, fastball and slider. I have five pitches I can throw for strikes and that’s what I do."
