The Mets lost to the Cubs this afternoon by the score of 5-3 in sunny and windy Wrigley Field. It was a coming out party of sorts for Jenrry Mejia who made his much anticipated debut as a starting pitcher. Game Summary It wasn’t exactly a Cinderella story for the young righthander Jenrry Mejia who after 30 relief appearances and a stint in the minors, returned for his first career starting assignment against the Cubs. Mejia actually […]
The Mets announced yesterday that Jenrry Mejia will start Saturday’s game at Chicago. Not a surprise. I hope the Mets give Mejia a lot of rope to see what he is capable of doing. Remember he spent a lot of the season in the bullpen, so his innings aren’t what they could be had he been in a rotation all year. Even so, I’m sure they will watch his pitch count. By rope, I mean […]
Strange ways, here we come… I believe that with the trade of Jeff Francoeur last night to the Texas Rangers, the Mets have essentially conceded the season. Not that I truly believed there is a “chance” that things could turn around, but you can never tell with baseball. I guess I’m a bit naive that I refuse to give up hope until mathematical elimination is complete. However, I am not going to go so far […]
Updated 12:00 PM According to Jon Heyman, Jenrry Mejia will get a chance to start very soon. [tweeted]http://twitter.com/SI_JonHeyman/statuses/22632463630[/tweeted] When I originally posted this blog this morning, I wrote: Jenrry Mejia‘s next start is scheduled for Saturday, but I’m wondering if it will come against the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs… or for the Mets against the Chicago Cubs. Hey why not? The baseball gods were listening! Original Post 7:15 AM Top Mets pitching prospect Jenrry Mejia made […]
The Mets promoted RHP Jenrry Mejia to Triple-A Buffalo today. The 20-year-old right-hander will start for the Bisons on Monday against Syracuse. Mejia is 2-0 with 36 strikeouts and a 1.31 ERA over 34 1/3 innings in eight minor league starts. Earlier this season, he appeared in 30 games out of the bullpen for the Mets, going 0-2 with a 3.25 ERA.
Today is as good a time as any to start checking out which players down on the farm, may or may not be ready to help the Mets in 2011 and beyond. There’s no better way to do that, then by checking in with one of the best in the business, John Sickels, of MinorLeagueBall.com. John reviews the Mets Top 20 Prospects list that he originally posted back in January. Based on John’s comments, I decided to […]
I just wanted to pass this along from Adam Rubin of ESPN New York. Jenrry Mejia, who tossed three innings in the Gulf Coast League on Wednesday in his first official game action since straining the back of the rotator cuff while working in Double-A Binghamton’s rotation, was so impressive in the performance he will be moved to a higher level of the minors, outside of Port St. Lucie. Mejia regularly registered 96-98 mph with […]
I really try to avoid the pitfalls of letting a game or two get to me. However in lieu of Sunday’s implosion of Frankie Rodriguez, his latest in a line of many, my jerking knee isn’t bothering my conscience quite as much as I thought it would. Earlier this year Omar Minaya and Jerry Manuel fawned over minor league phenom pitcher, Jenrry Mejia. Somehow through that love affair the kid surprisingly made the major league team […]
** Latest Update Monday, 4:30 PM ** Mets top pitching prospect Jenrry Mejia has been diagnosed with a strain in his right rotator cuff. Mejia, who was removed in the second inning of his start on Sunday, visited the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York Monday, where it was determined that he had a “posterior cuff strain.” The Mets said that Mejia will “return to throwing as tolerated.” According to the Daily News, the posterior […]
