What do you know? Jenrry Mejia is thriving in the bullpen

While some in the Mets' circle (be it fans, media, what have you) begrudgingly did not like the fact that Jenrry Mejia was taken out of the rotation and put in to the bullpen, you really can not argue with the results. Ever since going to the bullpen on May 12 after going 3-0 with [...]

Jenrry Mejia’s struggles could lead to promotion of Montero and or deGrom

Like it or not, Jenrry Mejia may be ticketed for the bullpen after all. Reports are surfacing that the New York Mets are strongly considering the idea of promoting either Rafael Montero and/or Jacob deGrom and using one of them in the rotation while pushing Mejia to the bullpen and possibly grooming him to be [...]

Jenrry Mejia getting the short end in rotation battle

Even without Matt Harvey, the New York Mets have themselves a fine rotation with Zack Wheeler, Jon Niese, Dillon Gee and free-agent newcomer Bartolo Colon set to anchor the staff.

I don’t need to [...]

Should the Mets go “Back to the Future” with Jenrry Mejia’s role?

Last week Mets fans saw something scary: Jenrry Mejia made his first spring-training appearance. The outing was less than ideal. In only one inning of work, Mejia gave up five runs total -- four of them coming from a grand slam by Casey Kotchman. Mejia’s performance has come as a bit of a shock. The [...]

Jenrry Mejia: The Mets’ forgotten ace

When people talk about the future of the Mets’ rotation, they always talk about Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler, as well they should. If he isn’t included in a trade, Jonathon Niese will be there, too. I’ve heard some mention Dillon Gee and while I’m still a bit skeptical about that one, after the half [...]

Most important Mets’ September call up: Jeurys Familia or Jenrry Mejia?

While the Mets are not likely playing for any postseason glory this September, that’s not to say that the final month is inconsequential. It’s that time of year again; when call-ups audition for their future with the club. For the Mets, they have two intriguing prospects in Jeurys Familia and Jenrry Mejia, who have a [...]

Jenrry Mejia and Chris Young both eyeing Mets’ rotation vacancy
