Mejia was starting to show positive signs in his extended spring training rehab, writes Puma. But he had a flare up last week.
Once the top pitching prospect in the Mets system, Mejia has endured a myriad of injuries throughout his career. Most recently, he was shut down during spring training after experiencing soreness in his right elbow. He was placed on the 60-day disabled list with right elbow tendinitis and inflammation two weeks ago.
The 23-year old last pitched for the Mets on September 30, 2012. He made three starts last season and appeared in five games while posting a 5.63 ERA. He missed the entire 2011 season due to Tommy John Surgery.
