      Mets RP Jenrry Mejia to assume setup role upon activation

      Mets reliever Jenrry Mejia is ready to rejoin the team when his 80-game suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs ends next week, manager Terry Collins said Tuesday. After two scoreless appearances in the Gulf Coast League (Rookie), Mejia fired one scoreless inning for Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday. He struck out two and has six strikeouts in three innings since he began to throw in the minors. "He's ready to go, ready to pitch here and he's going to go out a couple of more times and then he's going to come back," Collins said, per the New York Post. "I think you're going to see a little different team, when we start to get our guys back and our young kids have done a tremendous job of holding us in there while we've had all these injuries and in this case the suspension. But when [Mejia] gets back he's going to help us." Collins said Mejia, who is expected to assume a setup role upon his return, has had his fastball range from 94-96 mph. "When he was 20 years old he pitched pretty good at this level, in a similar role that he's going to pitch in now," Collins said. "Hopefully he can regain that and be a big asset for us in the bullpen."

      Mets RP Jenrry Mejia will return to bullpen after suspension

      The Mets' bullpen could be getting one of their long-awaited arms back in the near future. Right-hander Jenrry Mejia , who was suspended for 80 games at the beginning of the season, is eligible to return on July 7 when the team is in San Francisco. And when he comes back, he'll have a spot at the back end of the bullpen waiting for him. "When he comes back, he'll certainly be at the back end of that bullpen and ready to help out," manager Terry Collins said, per the New York Daily News. The Mets currently have the third-lowest bullpen ERA in the National League, but lately they have had trouble handing a lead over to closer Jeurys Familia in the ninth inning. Mejia will likely need about two weeks-worth of rehab games to get his arm up to speed before he joins the club. Mejia was on the disabled list with elbow soreness prior to the suspensions. But Mejia's health is no longer in question. "This was not about health. His arm is fine," Collins said. "So when he gets his reps in and he gets his command back as he's getting ready to pitch - when he comes back - he'll certainly be at the back end of that bullpen."

      Mets' Jenrry Mejia (elbow) to begin throwing program next week

      Mets pitcher Jenrry Mejia (elbow) will return to the United States to begin a throwing program in about 10 days, The Star-Ledger reports. Mejia was placed on the disabled list in early April before being handed an 80-game suspension for testing positive for an anabolic steroid. Though initially the reliever was said by general manager Sandy Alderson not to be guaranteed a roster spot once his suspension was served, manager Terry Collins indicated on Monday that the team would find a spot for him in the bullpen. Mejia had served as the team's closer before his absence, but the Mets have seen Jeurys Familia blossom in the role, racking up 15 saves in 16 opportunities while posting a 1.44 ERA and 30:6 K:BB ratio in 25 innings this season.

      Ricco: Jenrry Mejia could be back with Mets once suspension ends

      The Mets seem to be softening their stance in regards to the return of suspended reliever Jenrry Mejia, who is serving an 80-game suspension for testing positive for an anabolic steroid. After general manager Sandy Alderson said in mid-April that Mejia wasn't guaranteed a roster spot when his suspension ended, assistant general manager John Ricco told the New York Post that the team is hopeful the right-hander will be able to pitch in the majors when eligible to return. Mejia can return from his suspension July 7 against the Giants, barring any rainouts. Mejia is allowed to pitch in the minors before his suspension ends. He is currently throwing at the team's academy in the Dominican Republic. Ricco said the plan is for Mejia to report to the team's spring facility in Florida in early June and have him begin pitching for their affiliates around the third week of June. Mejia began the season as the Mets closer, but he never made an appearance as he dealt with an elbow injury. He was then suspended on April 11. Mejia likely won't return to the closer's role upon activation.
