Mejia was optioned to Triple-A Columbus on Saturday.

Mejia clearly needed a reset, as he's allowed four or more earned runs in each of his last six starts, struggling to a 12.55 ERA and 2.11 WHIP over that stretch and raising his season ERA to 8.75. His spot in the rotation is due up Monday against Cincinnati, so Cleveland will have to call up a starter by then. For now, it's infielder Andres Gimenez who will take his place on the roster.
