September 15, 2010 – Jenrry Mejia is removed from the game after a 2-0 count on the Pirates’ Andrew McCutchen. After the game the Mets announced that Mejia was shutdown for the rest of the season. It will be two years to the day since the last time Jenrry Mejia started a game for the New York Mets back on September 15, 2010. In that game, his third of that season after working mostly in relief, Mejia was removed in the middle of an at-bat in the third inning with a 2-0 count on Andrew McCutchen of the Pirates. “I saw something was wrong,” catcher Henry Blanco said. “I went out right away. I saw his face. He had a little pain. He said his back was sore. He didn’t feel right.” Mejia, 20, reacted after throwing a low pitch to McCutchen with one out. The Mets described the injury as an acute strain of a muscle in the back of the right shoulder. The next morning the Mets released a statement that their young righthander and top pitching prospect was being shutdown for the rest of the season
