Mejia (4-6) allowed three runs on five hits while striking out three batters over just three innings in Saturday's loss to Toronto. This was Mejia's first start since Aug. 8, as the 24-year-old lefty missed over a month with a biceps injury. He made three rehab appearances before Saturday's game, so the short outing was clearly the result of his poor performance and not related to his previous ailment. Mejia takes an underwhelming 4.62 ERA and 1.57 WHIP into his next projected start against Detroit at Comerica Park.
Mejia (biceps) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Wednesday. He is scheduled to start Saturday's game against the Blue Jays. Mejia is ready to rejoin the Twins' rotation after spending a little more than a month on the shelf with a left biceps strain. The 24-year-old southpaw made three rehab starts between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Rochester, allowing just one run over 13 innings during those starts. Mejia, who is set to make his first start since Aug. 8, compiled a 4.47 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 86.2 innings prior to his injury.
Mejia (biceps) is scheduled to start Saturday against the Blue Jays, LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Mejia made three rehab starts between Double-A Chattanooga and Triple-A Rochester, tossing 13 innings and allowing just one run on nine hits and three walks. He'll look to improve his 4.47 ERA and 1.57 WHIP upon his return.
Mejia (biceps), who threw five scoreless innings in a rehab start Saturday for Double-A Chattanooga, looks set to return to the Twins rotation Thursday against Toronto, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Mejia has been sidelined since Aug. 9 with a biceps strain. He threw 73 pitches in his rehab start, so he may not be limited when he returns from the DL.
Mejia (biceps) will begin a rehab assignment Wednesday with Triple-A Rochester. Mejia reported no issues with his strained left biceps while he completed a bullpen session last week, so the Twins will have him test things out against hitters in his first game appearance since Aug. 8. The rookie will undoubtedly face some sort of pitch count Wednesday, so he could need an additional start in the minors before returning from the 10-day disabled list in September. Once Mejia is activated, he'll most likely replace Dillon Gee in the Twins' rotation.
