Jenrry Mejia Will Start Season In Class-AA Binghamton
Last week, manager Jerry Manual and pitching coach Dan Warthen started a mild furor in the Mets blogosphere with comments suggesting that 20-year old Jenrry Mejia could start the season in the Mets bullpen, possibly even as the setup man.
According to Brian Costa, Omar Minaya and Mets officials completely shot down any thoughts about Jenrry Mejia starting the season in the bullpen.
General manager Omar Minaya said Monday that the plan going into camp was for Mejia, 20, to begin the season as a starter at Double-A Binghamton. And despite Manuel’s comments, that plan has not changed. Minaya left the door open for Mejia to change the team’s thinking over the next few weeks, but the Mets will be reluctant to rush him.
Mejia hasn’t pitched above Double-A, and made just 10 starts for the B-Mets last season according to Costa.
