Establishing himself as one of baseball's most dominant pitchers, Matt Harvey is obviously a big part of the New York Mets' future. They once had high hopes for former top prospect Jenrry Mejia, too. Mejia is set to make his season debut in Game 1 of Friday's day-night doubleheader against the host Washington Nationals before Harvey gets the ball in Game 2. Mejia, who struggled through a disappointing 2010 rookie season and underwent Tommy John surgery in 2011, was placed on the disabled list this spring with inflammation in his elbow. The right-hander, though, will get another chance to shine after going 2-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts at Double-A Binghamton. Mejia went 1-2 with a 6.23 ERA in three big league starts in September. "We've tried to let him know or wanted him to understand - what he's hearing today about (Zack) Wheeler, about Harvey was all about Jenrry Mejia three years ago," manager Terry Collins told the Mets' official websit...

Mets Waste Another Harvey Gem In 2-1 Loss To Nats

What a difference a few hours makes. Matt Harvey toed the rubber and allowed no earned runs in eight innings tonight, but as we’ve come to expect, the run support was not there and the Mets dropped a heartbreaker 2-1. The game was quiet for three innings, but Josh Satin got it going in the top of the fourth when he drove a double to the opposite field. John Buck followed with...

Mejia Shines In 11-0 Win, Mets Take BP In First Game Of Doubleheader

The Mets’ bats were on fire and Jenrry Mejia was dominant in his debut today as the Mets took the first game of the doubleheader, 11-0, and crept even closer to the .500 mark, as well as a second place spot in the standings. The Amazins struck just seven pitches into the game when Daniel Murphy hit an absolute bomb to right field to go up 1-0. The Nats would threaten in the bottom...

Mets Matters: Jenrry Mejia Still In Plans

The New York Mets rave about their young pitching. Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler. Rafael Montero and Noah Syndergaard. A name missing, one who was on everybody’s wish list several years ago is that of Jenrry Mejia. The Mets misused Mejia under Jerry Manuel, bouncing him from the bullpen to the rotation. There was undue stress and a resultant injury that lead to Tommy John surgery...

Kirk Nieuwenhuis Demoted, Jenrry Mejia Added To 25 Man

Kirk Nieuwenhuis was demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas after tonight’s 2-1 loss to make room for Jenrry Mejia on the 25-man roster. Terry Collins said Mejia would not be returning to the minors with the Mets needing to take the roster back to 25 players, and suggested the Mets were preparing to use a six-man rotation that includes Mejia for the foreseeable future.

Mejia pitches seven scoreless, Murphy hits two homers as Mets rout Nationals

He was the great Mets pitching hope before Matt Harvey or Zack Wheeler. Jenrry Mejia was the young right hander the franchise was hoping would be the ace of the future before injuries derailed him. Friday Mejia may have pitched himself back into the Mets’ plans at least in the near future. He threw seven scoreless innings as the Mets pounded the Nationals 11-0 in the first game...

Substantially Cosmetic

You might not have recognized Jenrry Mejia today. Sure, there's the surface differences: the hair has grown out a little bit. There's a new number on the uniform as LaTroy Hawkins has Mejia's old number 32. But there's also the starting pitching arsenal. The extra pitches, the plan, the wisdom of years. It's comforting to know that Mejia wasn't totally...

Is This Recent Success Sustainable?

The Mets keep rolling.  Having won 19 of their last 31, sporting a win percentage of .612 over that stretch, the Mets didn’t cool off after the All-Star break.  Taking the series against the Phillies, even after a crushing first game loss, and splitting the series so far at one game a piece with the division leading Braves, the Mets are continuing to climb their way back to...

Nats Walk Off Again As Zimmerman, Ohlendorf Best Mets’ Harvey

It was shaping up to be a pretty embarrassing day. The Washington Nationals (50-54) had scored only one run over almost 18 innings of a double-header against the unimposing New York Mets (50-54), and were facing the possibility of falling to a tie for fourth place in the National League East. But then Ryan Zimmerman saved the day. Reminding Washington why they call him...

Mets Need More Pitching More Than They Need Marlon Byrd

There’s an old adage in baseball: you can never have enough good pitching. There’s another adage in life: you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink. Beat both in a large bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy and you’ve got something resembling the 2013 New York Mets. In case none of that makes any sense, consider someone like Carlos Torres....
