Jenrry Mejia Likely To Make 2013 Debut Against Nationals
According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets are considering Jenrry Mejia for a start next Saturday.
The Mets play a doubleheader on Friday in Washington, and will need an extra pitcher on Saturday.
MMO Prediction: Mejia will make his 2013 debut and have a solid performance after a long road back from rehab and TJS.
Read more about his start last night from my earlier post below.
Original Post 12:30 AM
The Binghamton Mets matched a season-high with 15 hits and Jenrry Mejia struck out eight over six innings in a 10-2 victory over the New Britain Rock Cats on Saturday night at New Britain Stadium. Cesar Puello doubled twice and drove in three runs to lead a B-Mets offensive attack that saw every player collect at least one hit.
Mejia had a two-run cushion before he even threw his first pitch. Danny Muno got the attack against Rock Cats starter Trevor May started immediately by leading off the game with a one-hop double off the right-field wall. Puello brought him home by skipping an RBI single past Eddie Rosario at second base. After swiping second, his 22nd stolen base of the year, Puello scored when Rhyne Hughes blistered a two-out RBI single up the middle.
Mejia set the tone in his second rehab appearance with the B-Mets by retiring the first eight batters he faced. The right-hander side-stepped a bunt single and a walk in a scoreless third and worked around a one-out single in a shutout fourth.
Nate Hanson put the only blemish on Mejia’s night by ripping a home run over the left-field wall to lead off the fifth inning. Mejia bounced back and retired six of seven to cap his night. Chase Huchingson took over in the seventh and allowed one on three hits over two innings of relief. Chasen Bradford closed the contest with a perfect ninth.
Mejia (2-0) surrendered just one run on three hits over six innings in the victory. His eight strikeouts were the most in one game since he fanned nine as a Buffalo Bison on 8/30/10 against the Syracuse Chiefs..
