Insight: He left after getting two outs in the tenth inning. Mejia hasn't had a very good month (10.38 ERA in four appearances) and this setback won't help matters.

Description: Mets RHP Jenrry Mejia earned his first career save Saturday against the Nationals.
Insight: New York manager Terry Collins has been going with a closer by committee. Mejia has thrown 3 1/3 scoreless innings with five strikeouts since he was demoted to the bullpen and could keep the closer role given the Mets' lack of options.

Insight: Of course, that's assuming the Mets are in a position to win the game. Bobby Parnell's season-ending elbow injury has forced New York to go with a closer by committee. Given how unsuccessful Jose Valverde and Kyle Farnsworth were in the ninth inning role, Mejia should be an improvement.

Insight: Mejia (3-0, 5.06 ERA) hasn't made it out of the fifth inning in either of his last two starts. Minor league phenom Rafael Montero (4-1, 3.67 ERA for Triple-A Las Vegas) will make his first big league start in Mejia's place Wednesday against the Yankees.

Description: Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia could be on his way to the bullpen, according to David Lennon of Newsday.
Insight: Mejia started off 3-0 with a 1.99 ERA, but he's allowed 16 earned runs on 23 hits in his last 14 2/3 innings. Mets manager Terry Collins said he's unsure if Mejia will make his start on May 14 against the Yankees. If he's moved to the bullpen, New York will call a starter up from Triple-A Las Vegas. Rafael Montero (3.67 ERA, 1.15 WHIP, 41 Ks in 41 2/3 IP) and Jacob deGrom (2.58 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, 29 Ks in 38 1/3 IP) are the most likely options to replace Mejia.

Description: New York starter Jenrry Mejia improved to 3-0 after Monday's win over St. Louis.
Insight: Mejia registered seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 scoreless innings. He hasn't given up a run in his last two starts. Mejia's walk rate is still too high (14 free passes in four starts this season) but with a 1.99 ERA across 22 2/3 innings, the right-hander hasn't given fantasy owners much to complain about.

Description: Mets starter Jenrry Mejia (blister) has been cleared to start Monday against the Cardinals, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN.
Insight: Mejia (2-0, 2.81 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) left his last start after five scoreless innings and 77 pitches due to a blister on his right middle finger, but he wasn't bothered by it during his bullpen session on Saturday.
 
4/16/2014 1:13:00 PM
Description: Mets starter Jenrry Mejia is questionable for his next start due to a blister, according to Adam Rubin of espnny.com.
Insight: That explains why Mejia (2-0, 2.81 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) left Tuesday's start after five scoreless innings and 77 pitches. Manager Terry Collins says he'll know more about Mejia's availability when he attempts to throw a bullpen session Friday.

Description: Mets starter Jenrry Mejia gave up two hits over five scoreless innings Tuesday at Arizona.

Description: X-rays on Jenrry Mejia's forearm came back negative. He was hit by a comebacker Friday in a game against the Blue Jays. SOURCE: Kristie Ackert, New York Daily News
Insight: The Mets right-hander has been diagnosed with forearm inflammation. He's scheduled to start next Friday against the Reds. Whether that ends up happening remains to be seen.

Description: Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia left Friday's game after getting hit with a line drive on the right forearm, according to Adam Rubin of espnny.com.
Insight: The 24-year-old Mejia left his previous start due to a bunion on his right foot. Either Mejia or Daisuke Matsuzaka will fill the Mets' final rotation spot this season. Mejia has a good deal of upside after posting a 2.87 ERA and 352 Ks in 398 minor league innings, though he has been injured often in his career.
 
8/20/2013 5:49:00 PM
Description: Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia will undergo season-ending elbow surgery to remove bone chips at some point over the next 7-10 days, according to ESPN's Adam Rubin.
Insight: The 23-year-old Mejia posted a 2.30 ERA, a 1.17 WHIP and a 27/4 K/BB in 27 1/3 innings this season and should be a part of New York's rotation next season.
 
8/18/2013 1:43:00 PM
Description: The Mets have placed righthander Jenrry Mejia on the 15-day DL.
Insight: The reason given was bone spurs in his right elbow. According to ESPN New York, Mejia (1-2, 2.30 ERA) could be a candidate for season-ending surgery.

Description: Mets starter Jenrry Mejia dominated the Nationals Friday in his season debut.
Insight: Elbow inflammation sidelined Mejia for the first three and a half months of the season. Making his seventh major league start, the righthander allowed seven hits in seven scoreless innings. He also had seven strikeouts (that's a lot of sevens). He's scheduled to throw again Wednesday against the Marlins.
