Mets Send Jenrry Mejia To Double-A, Recall Bobby Parnell

According to David Lennon of Newsday, the Mets have sent RHP Jenrry Mejia to Double-A Binghamton to continue his development as a starting pitcher.

The Mets have yet to announce a corresponding move and have until tomorrow to do so.

It looks like common sense has prevailed and Mejia can go do what he needs to do so that he can return as a starting pitcher.

According to Adam Rubin, Mejia will start for the B-Mets on Wednesday.

Jerry Manuel spoke with reporters,

“We felt that his development and progression kind of leveled off, Manuel said. “It was a tremendous experience for him and he gave us everything he had. But to get him to the next level, he needs to pitch on a regular basis.”
Update 6:14 PM

According to Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, the Mets will promote reliever Bobby Parnell from Class-AAA Buffalo to replace Mejia on the roster.
