Oft-injured righthander Jenrry Mejia has suffered another setback, according to Mike Puma of the New York Post.
Mejia was starting to show positive signs in his extended spring training rehab, writes Puma. But he had a flare up last week.
One the top pitching prospect in the Mets system, Mejia has endured a myriad of injuries. Most recently, he was shut down during spring training...

The Mets obviously have a lot of problems—pick your favorite.
You can pick from the struggles of Ike Davis, Lucas Duda, Ruben Tejada, the whole mess of an outfield, the bullpen, etc.
And of course, you can look at the rotation (sans Matt Harvey) for a lion’s share of the blame. I don’t need to rehash the struggles of the back-end of the staff.
That being said, the Mets are...
Jenrry Mejia will be idle for another two weeks before being allowed to resume throwing a baseball.
Mejia was diagnosed with forearm tendinitis, the Mets announced. He was examined by team doctors in New York.
Pitching coach Dan Warthen had thought Mejia had discovered his cutter during a March 11 appearance against the Detroit Tigers, but Mejia has been unable to pitch since.

Last week Mets fans saw something scary: Jenrry Mejia made his first spring-training appearance. The outing was less than ideal. In only one inning of work, Mejia gave up five runs total — four of them coming from a grand slam by Casey Kotchman. Mejia’s performance has come as a bit of a shock. The Dominican right-hander has been on the radar for a while as a Mets top prospect...
This from Adam Rubin of ESPN New York:
Jenrry Mejia has a fourth option the Mets can use in 2013. So the right-hander does not necessarily have to make the major league ballclub out of spring training.
Assuming the Mets sign a veteran starting pitcher to round out the rotation, Mejia logically would compete for a bullpen spot. But, like with Jeurys Familia, Mejia can be sent to...
When people talk about the future of the Mets’ rotation, they always talk about Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler, as well they should. If he isn’t included in a trade, Jonathon Niese will be there, too. I’ve heard some mention Dillon Gee and while I’m still a bit skeptical about that one, after the half season he had in 2012, I won’t dismiss the possibility. Minor league...
If you ask me, the worst thing the Mets could have done this year… would have been to thrust Matt Harvey into the big-league team from the start of the season. They didn’t, but could you imagine what that might have done to Matt Harvey’s career prospects? Actually, we all can. Because the Mets were good enough to give us an example… his name is Jenrry Mejia.

Don’t rush Harvey! Don’t rush Wheeler! That’s all we keep hearing from EVERYONE. But what about the guy who was close to the top of everyone’s list last year as far as Mets prospects go? Jenrry Mejia.
