      Mets' Jenrry Mejia: Agrees to deal, avoiding arbitration

      Mejia agreed to a one-year, $2.47 million contract Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports. Mejia won't play for the majority of 2016 after receiving a 162-game suspension for a second positive test for performance-enhancing drugs in late July. As a result, he will earn less in his second year of arbitration than he did in his first. The 26-year-old should once again serve in a late-inning relief role when eligible, but it's unclear what kind of shape he'll be in after missing a good chunk of two straight seasons.

      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."
