Anthony DiComo of Mets.com, believes that Jenrry Mejia, Lucas Duda, Fernando Martinez and Kirk Nieuwenhuis are all prospects to watch this season and writes the following: RHP Jenrry Mejia: After speeding to the Majors last year at the age of 20, Mejia will most likely take a step back and open this season at Triple-A Buffalo. If he satisfies the Mets with his performance there, Mejia could rejoin the rotation at some point this summer. […]
